On May 2, Princess Charlotte celebrated her third birthday! We can’t help but love this magnificent little Princess, as she’s always won over the hearts of everyone with her wonderful personality!
However, Princess Charlotte has to battle for her rights as a royal all because she’s a girl! In 2015, a law was put into place that allowed her to keep her place in line after her brother was born, where traditionally a boy would always take his sister’s place in line.
Although Princess Charlotte doesn’t have to worry about losing her place in line, it seems that her descendants will lose out on their royal rights because of her gender. According to the rules of the British monarchy, Princess Charlotte’s children will not inherit the title of “Prince,” “Princess,” or “HRH.”
The reason for this discrepancy is that royal titles are inherited through sons and male lines, rather than daughters. Even Prince Andrew’s daughters are known as Princess, while Princess Anne’s daughter, Zara Phillips, is not.
It seems like the antiquated rules here are set to punish Princess Charlotte’s future children by denying them the same rights that the children of Prince Louis and Prince George will get.
What do you think? Should Princess Charlotte’s children be given the same titles as Prince George and Prince Louis', or should her children be denied the title because of her gender?
This is a curious story, and we thought we could follow it up with a video that is sure to get a smile out of anyone! We hope you enjoy the video below!
