Last October, Commonwealth leaders did agree to change the succession laws. The BBC’s Peter Hunt reports:
The law has not yet been altered but a Cabinet Office spokesman said formal consent was expected “very shortly” and ministers have indicated that the legislation will apply to any royal births from the date of the leaders’ decision.
