image for Changes To Royal Succession On The Cards

A Cabinet spokesman has announced that changes to the laws on succession are being investigated.

The Act of Succession, which has been in place since 1701, prevents any Roman Catholic or any female, from succeeding to the throne of the United Kingdom.

Although all 15 Commonwealth countries would have to be consulted before any change of legislation could be enacted, its anticipated that the Succession Act could be changed within the next 5 years.

While confirming that negotiations were under way, Under Secretary for Royal Affairs Nicholas Quentin-Starbridge advised that any changes to the current Act weren't necessarily all positive :

"There is no doubt that the current Act of Settlement is discriminatory", he told reporters yesterday.

"But people should be aware that, if all barriers to succession are removed, there would be nothing to stop, say, a shell suit ambassador or even a dullard ascending to the throne".

The Under Secretary would not, however, confirm or deny if Prince Edward would fall into either of these categories.
