By now, it is likely that most royal enthusiasts are aware of the fact that Kate Middleton gave birth to the newest member of the royal family Monday morning. In addition to the excitement of the arrival of the baby, a lot has happened about his older sister. With the birth of the new baby, some people wonder where Princess Charlotte is on the throne. It turns out that Charlotte is writing history – and maybe she does not realize it.
Whether Charlotte realizes it or not, the arrival of Windsor's tiniest bundle of joy is an important occasion for the two-year-old Princess a recent report from Marie Claire released a few hours after the baby's birth. (And not only because she became a big sister.) Because, as the magazine reported, with the eagerly awaited arrival of Princess Charlotte's little brother, the angelic toddler became just the first female member of Britain's royal family her place in the line of succession after the birth of a male heir.
Jamie Samhan, a royal commentator for CTV, recorded the news of this exciting feminist victory with other royal enthusiasts on Twitter in the early hours of April 23 . Suffice to say, Samhan clearly summarized the legitimate reason to celebrate in her tweet:
For the record, Princess Charlotte is at this point the fourth in line to take the throne. Judging from recent news of the history of history at Buckingham Palace, it looks like Charlotte will not be able to make her place in the midst of the royal pecking order in the foreseeable future. (Apart from any future events that could bring them to third place). As Marie Claire noted in her report, this is a really big deal – great for Charlotte, but also for the royal family.
Because a woman in Charlotte's position in the past would immediately lose her place – compared to a younger brother. But thanks to a seminal legislative initiative (led by the British Parliament) that gave the firstborn daughters and sons of the royal family an equal chance to take the throne. Victoria Arbiter, also a well-known royal commentator for CNN and CTV News, similarly turned to Twitter to share news about the momentous event. "Princess Charlotte Writes History Because The First Royal Girl Does Not Have Her Position In Line Usurped By A Younger Born Brother", Arbiter Tweeted .
In 2013, Parliament passed a law that laid the foundation for a new era for the British royal family, in which the hierarchical path to the throne no longer prioritizes gender, the BBC said. Legislation stipulated that all members of the royal family born after October 2011 adhere to the new parameters, which, in the simplest case, basically means that heirs to the throne follow their younger siblings in order, regardless of whether they are "Re Woman And while the law was introduced technically about five years ago, the mandates of Princess Charlotte could not actually take effect in real life until the birth of Princess Charlotte's little brother.
It might as well It is worth noting here that Charlotte, at the age of 2 currently has the highest rank of a female person listed in the line of succession. (According to her, Princess Beatrice of York is the next woman in 8th place. So it's not too hard to understand why she's making the point for so many people – British and others re – proves to be open For a long time, I was frustrated by a royal hierarchy that favors its male members, if only in the name of a long tradition.
A few excited royal family fans voiced their excitement about Charlotte's story in the commentary section of Samhans Tweet, which reflected the understanding that this day (and the conceivably more feminine future) it seemed to conjure up) in The royal story is certainly one for the books – that, and it should probably have come a bit earlier than it did.
So, while the selection method behind the royal line of the episode might still prove a little difficult to understand (for all of us overseas proponents of across the pond, at least), it seems the whole process will become more significant – all too keep silent about much less patriarchal – from now on. Who crossed their fingers to rule a Queen Charlotte sometime in this life?
