The 1701 Act stipulating the the Daughter of a Monarch must stand aside in favour of her Brother is about to be abolished. as is the bar on having a Catholic Monarch. This is reported in todays press. If this comes to pass, and something happened to Prince Charles would this put HRH Princess Anne in line for the Throne? This report is in The East Anglian Daily Times. this morning. What would the new line of accession look like? Could this actually happen by an act of Parliament? Before any of you stat shouting "Republican" I didnt write the item in the paper I am only asking for comments.
