in the news: princesses are people too

The British Monarchy has today finally stepped into the 21st century and declared that royal sons and daughters will now have equal rights to the British throne.

The leaders of the 16 countries where the Queen is Head of State (including Australia) voted on the decision, which they approved unanimously.

In practical terms, the change means that if the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s eldest child is a girl, she will become queen instead of her younger brother becoming king.

In less practical terms, the change gives me an excuse to post a picture of Duchess Catherine looking gorgeous in the vintage Amanda Wakeley empire gown she wore for her first solo engagement this week (right).
