The more things change, the more they stay the same. With the birth (and upcoming christening) of Prince George Alexander Louis, the line of succession for the British monarchy extends to a fourth generation. The Prince of Cambridge is now third in line to the throne after his grandfather, Prince Charles, and his father, Prince William. He booted his Uncle Harry to fourth. What could have been groundbreaking—but wasn’t—was a change in the law of succession passed by Parliament in 2011 that guaranteed that the first child of Prince William would become the ruling (regent) king or queen: This child was going to be third in line to the throne regardless of sex. The difference is, under the old law, had this baby been a girl, she could have been surpassed in the line of succession by a later-born brother. Since George is a boy, he’s third under either law—and will stay so—thus, things stay the same this time. Interestingly, primogeniture, or the practice of the oldest male inheriting a nobleman’s entire estate, continues for dukes and earls and other landed gentry.
