Girls born to members of the Royal Family are to be given equal rights with boys in the succession to the throne as centuries-old rules were overturned today.
As the historic changes to the monarchy were agreed, the Queen, at the Commonwealth summit in Perth, Australia, hailed the power of women to change the world.
The reforms mean the if the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's first child is a girl, she will take precedence over any younger brothers in the order of succession.
As politicians unanimously agreed the dramatic reform to royal succession laws dating back more than 300 years, the Queen said the untapped potential of women and girls should be set free.
Speaking at the opening of the summit of the 53 Commonwealth countries, she said: 'The theme this year is Women As Agents of Change.
'It reminds us of the potential in our societies that is yet to be fully unlocked and it encourages us to find ways to allow all girls and women to play their full part.''
Does the Queen write these remarks that she delivers? It seems doubtful, unless of course she and the rest of the royals have become brainwashed along with the rest of the populace, including those in all Western countries.
I mean, how can one be a member of a royal family and yet preach egalitarianism from that perch? It makes no sense.
This seems like a bad move, a bad precedent, and just one more step on the ever-present slippery slope to more destruction of the traditional order of Western Christendom.
Someone in the comments section notes that William and Kate are thinking of adopting a child, so potentially an adopted child might be the successor to the throne. Not so long ago, there was an article full of hand-wringing about the lamentable fact that no ''non-whites'' had ever sat on the throne of England. I mean, someone wrote that article in all seriousness, apparently oblivious to the nonsense implicit in the theme of the piece.
But if William and Kate are inclined to follow in the footsteps of the Hollywood celebrities, perhaps they will adopt a Third World girl and thus ''make history'' by putting a Third World female in line for the throne. That would make the multicult egalitarians ecstatic.
Anything can happen these days, it seems, and who are you to complain? After all it's the 21st century! Monarchy, monoracial dynasties, and male dominance are all so yesterday!
