Historically, only heterosexual Protestant females were ever allowed to become the Queen of England, Britain and the Empire. But after a ruling today made by the 16 Commonwealth countries, gays and Catholics are now allowed.
This means that if Kate Middleton turned out to be a man in drag, he could become Queen. The new rule also paves the way for Camilla to get to the throne.
The rule change is said to be an attempt to modernise the Royal Family, and to encourage homosexuality among monarchists. In other European countries, they have already gone much further than this. Princess Frederick of Sweden already enjoys his role as the first transgender heir to that throne. Prince Albert III of Belgium is the dog of the current King Albert II, and next in line to be King.
Royal fans say that it is possible that if Britain ever gets tired of the current monarchy, it could enjoy a glorious future with Christopher Biggins and Elton John as King and Queen, and a corgi as Prince of Wales.
