In early December 2012, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, was hospitalized for a severe case of morning sickness. As soon as news spread that the world's favorite royal couple was expecting much speculation began over the unborn child who would one day most likely ascend to the throne of England.
The rules would remain the same, meaning, the first baby to bolt out of the birth canal would be the future ruler of England. Even if Kate were to have a Caesarean section, doctors would follow the standard procedure. Either way the first baby out would one day be king or queen. That's right, queen.
Thanks to the new rule, gender no longer mattered. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's first born, boy or girl, twins or triplets, would be the future ruler of England.by Jennie Wood
