Bright girl. If they change the Act of Succession to the female line and anything happens to the Prince of Wales, we are a heartbeat away from having a Canadian Queen of England.

That should keep the Canuks happy. :D

2. HRH Prince William of Wales (b. 1982), son of The Prince of Wales
3. HRH Prince Henry of Wales (b. 1984), son of The Prince of Wales
4. HRH The Duke of York (The Prince Andrew; b. 1960), son of Queen Elizabeth II
5. HRH Princess Beatrice of York (b. 1988), daughter of The Duke of York
6. HRH Princess Eugenie of York (b. 1990), daughter of The Duke of York
7. HRH The Earl of Wessex (The Prince Edward; b. 1964), son of Queen Elizabeth II
8. James, Viscount Severn (legally HRH Prince James of Wessex; b. 2007), son of The Earl of Wessex
9. Lady Louise Windsor (legally HRH Princess Louise of Wessex; b. 2003), daughter of The Earl of Wessex
10. HRH The Princess Royal (The Princess Anne; b. 1950), daughter of Queen Elizabeth II

If it went to the female line then the PR would be after William and Harry with Peter then being 4th - overtaking Andrew and Edward and thier kids.

If PoW departs before HM, William is Heir Apparent.

How bizarre! Posh Canadian Totty changes cults to marry minor Royal, must be a slow news day!

Now that she is an Apostate I wonder if the Catholic Church will send the inquisition after her. In fact isn't apostasy punishable with death? Perhaps some of the more seriously faithful will even try and kill her.

Or am I confusing my cults? Maybe that is some other set of loons.

In answer to who had the better deal in this swap of Miss Kelly and Mr Blair I'd say Miss Kelly - Oh sorry which Church got the better deal? Definitely the Catholics. Tony actually believes in their drivel. He even has first hand coms with their imaginary friend. On the other hand whilst it's possible that Miss Kelly is a true believer in Anglicanism who coincidental betrothal to a member of the Royal family acted as a spur to her conversion, well, make your own mind up.

The real winners are those of us who have had another opportunity to laugh at the irrational.

Quote from the Torygraff article, "Canadian-born Miss Kelly had been given pastoral advice in Windsor for several months before deciding to convert." That must have taken about three seconds and probably been along the lines of "don't get caught". The pragmatic CofE don't seem to let religion, morals or theology get in the way of their "faith".

Isn't that the Pentecostalists? Or am I mixing my cults up even more.

What an embarrassingly pathetic thing to do. If you genuinely hold religious beliefs, how can the astronomically low prospect of your spouse's ascending the throne be reason enough to abandon them? Does this transatlantic tergiversatress think that anybody will take her 'conversion' seriously? Or was pressure put upon her? (Unlikely, to be fair.) Anyway, for the nutters out there who seriously think that Rome is still a threat, just wait till the boys from Mecca take over. There'll be no religious bed-hopping then, rest assured of that!

Actually there are good practical reasons for her to 'convert' especially if she is luke warm about the Catholic thing.

As a Catholic she would have required permission from her Bishop to marry a non-Catholic. She would also have been required to bring her sprogs up as Catholics. see: http://www.dwc.org/index.php?option=com_fireboard&Itemid=225&func=view&id=111&catid=8 which is in a slightly different context but neatly explains canon law in this area.

If for whatever reason she (and her intended) are not prepared to do this she has very little choice other than to renounce Catholicism. Ordinary mortals like me don't have to make a big deal of it, we just stop bothering.

There is also the issue of the 'social pressure' that she is under to conform. Grandmother-in-law is the head of the Church and Defender of the Faith.

Whilst I enjoy having a good laugh at cultists, especially when they get their knickers in a knot over how to best serve their imaginary friend I also recognise that there is a lot of human misery caused by this drivel. This being the tip of that iceberg.

Some cnut of a priest told my grandfather, as he lay dying in hospital, that he would not go to heaven because he had married a non-Catholic in a non-Catholic service. The cnut offered to hear my Grandfather's confession, but he refused to accept that his marriage was a sin. My widowed Grandmother has converted to Catholicism to try and 'repair the damage'.

i think everyone should consider that they do not get to choose what religion your born to (your parents do because theyre parents did),

i dont think anyone sits down one day and decides to review every conceivable religion and make an informed choice weighing up the pros and cons of each choice and choosing waht suits them.

it would be nice but also very odd

I did - when I realised that there are no pixies, faeries, hop-goblins or any other imaginary friends.

i know what you mean but if it is instilled early enough and vigourously enough people can end up brain washing their children to believe religion hole heartedly, (not just christians)

in my case my parents are catholic and C of E so i was safe,
where as it is fair to say that religion can be an ethnic matter not just spiritual.

although i would become a "jedi" although sandhurst wouldnt look to kindly to that :D

I'm not so sure about that - I saw some funny things in Ireland during my tours there, on wild, rainswept (is there any other kind?) nights out in the ulu. Mind you, I'd usually had a glass or two of Bush at the time!
