Rules had meant a girl born to William and Kate would be known as Lady, not Her Royal Highness, and only a first-born boy could get the Royal title.

But the Queen — by issuing new Letters Patent — has changed the rules so her great-grandchild, due this summer, has a title suitable for a future monarch.

Royal expert Charles Kidd said the alteration was expected.

He said the amendment “seemed logical” to end discrimination against women succeeding to the throne.
