Girl power WHAT WHAT!
There was much speculation as to what title Prince William and Kate Middleton's son or daughter would be called and it’s officially been decided that he or she will be Prince or Princess.
The Queen has just released a very formal decree, essentially changing 100 years of royal law, which used to say that the only Prince William’s eldest son could be called Prince and any daughters would just be called “lady.”
Well, enough of that. Here’s what the Queen wrote: “The Queen has been pleased by Letters Patent under the Great Seal of the Realm dated 31 December 2012 to declare that all the children of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales should have and enjoy the style, title and attribute of Royal Highness with the titular dignity of Prince or Princess prefixed to their Christian names or with such other titles of honour."
Wow, that is a lot of big words that basically says, “If Will and Kate have a daughter, let’s call her Princess.”
This is all part of a change in royal legislation to remove gender discrimination in the line of succession.
The U.K. has started to update the laws, such that a first born girl could become queen one day. As it stands, only a boy could succeed the throne, but in a post “Two Broke Girls” world, girls can do anything, like headline a sitcom or become royalty.
