  • Britain’s Got Talent 2018 final Prince Harry and Meghan Markle make SHOCK BGT appearance

Shortly before the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's first child in 2013, the queen passed the Succession to the Crown Act, which meant that succession to the throne would no longer be determined based on gender. The official Kensington Palace Twitter account thanked the public for their support saying: "Thank you everyone for the lovely cards and letters following Princess Charlotte's third birthday, the birth of Prince Louis, and the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex". But their future children might not inherit a title.

The couple got married in Jamaica in 2011 in front of 102 guests - the same year Kate Middleton became Prince William's wife.

But the rules of peerage, which refer to the legal system concerning both hereditary and lifetime titles in the United Kingdom, have not changed, meaning male heirs inherit the title rather than daughters.

Homes in Kapoho Beach Lots and Vacationland are on smaller lots and are closer together than in other parts of the Puna district. The large laze plume was blowing inland along the coastline and the agency warned residents to avoid the area.

We hope Meghan personally plans on rocking the boat since her own future daughters will affected by this archaic legislation.

"It seems rather hard on [Baron Braybrooke's daughter] Amanda", Fellowes told the Sunday Times in July 2017. "She's lived and worked there all her adult life", Fellowes said. "Simply making the peerage...the equivalent of the royal family would create a great chaos for many families...whose sons have for 30, 40, 50 years made the assumption of inheriting. One can't just brush them aside", he explained.

Though it will mark their first joint engagement, the royal duo have attended a handful of events together in recent months.

Maybe this is The Queen's way of shutting down the racist haters, squashing any rumours people are trying to make happen, or letting Meghan know how truly accepted she is, especially given all that she gave up for Harry and the BRF.

Dressed in an Oscar de la Renta dress and coat, she was the only family member present to support Meghan at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle.
