Queen Bends Royal Rules So Charlotte Can Still Be 4th In Line For The Throne

The chances of Queen Elizabeth II taking over the throne were quite bleak when she was born. The Act of Settlement of 1701 in the British constitution allows brothers to precede their sisters in matters of succession. This means that despite the first birth being that of a girl child, the younger brother may eventually end up sitting on the throne. Sounds a bit unfair, right?

Let’s look at the case of Princess Margaret. If she had been born as a boy or had any younger brothers, Elizabeth would have lost the chance of being the first successor to the throne. The Succession of the Crown Act changed these ancient succession rules in the year 2013. How? Well, it put an end to male primogeniture. The official implementation of the Act took place in 2015, only two months prior to the birth of Princess Charlotte. In the current scenario, regardless of the gender of the royal baby, he/she will continue to hold the right to take ownership of the throne. That’s pretty good news for baby Charlotte now, isn’t it?

The rule in question is applicable to every royal born post-October 28, 2011. This means that baby Charlotte is 4th in line to succeed the throne, regardless of whether she has a younger boy or girl sibling. Baby Cambridge stands to be the 5th successor followed by Prince Harry as the sixth in line.

Pregnant Princess Kate Makes Unexpected Appearance To Dance With Special Guest

Princess Kate gave a special, surprise visit to the Paddington Station, where a Children’s Charity Event was taking place that morning. She was with Prince Harry as well as Prince William. She then went on to dance with the famous cartoon character by holding his hand and taking a twirl.

After being sidelined for almost six-weeks with severe morning sickness from her pregnancy, Princess Kate, who is now expecting her third child, seems to have recovered nicely. A royal guide told ABC News that, “Her condition is improved, but the Duchess does continue to be affected by hyperemesis gravidarum.” Princess Kate, the mother of two beautiful children, Princess Charlotte (2 years old) and Prince George (4 years old), is, “making decisions day to day but is keen to do as much as she can.”

Princess Kate and her royal companions were met by the cast of the movie Paddington 2, who were there to meet children, who by the description of Kensington place were, “going through difficult times in their lives.”

The royal trio then met the children aboard a Pullman vintage train and then spent time with them as it traveled through the countryside in England.

Prince William even told one of the children about his son’s personal favorite Disney movie, the Lion King. He said that his son, “quite likes The Lion King,” and that, “watched that a few times.”

Hugh Bonneville of Downton Abbey fame later joined them and the 130 children at the Charity Event.

Dolly Parton Reveals The Reason She Doesn’t Have Kids

Dolly Parton has been an influencer in the music industry for decades! The 71-year-old singer recently released the album “I Believe in You,” her first children’s album. She also agreed with Matt Lauer from TODAY Monday, that yes, the children most certainly do love her.

She says that because, “I have that high-pitched voice … I look like Mother Goose or one of those over-exaggerated characters, and kids just relate to that.” Because of her Imagination Library, a foundation that gives books to newborns until they reach kindergarten, she has been really involved with children over the past few years. The successful project will be giving away their 100 millionth book in the coming weeks. This project is what gave her the idea of recording songs that are specifically for children. She told Lauer that all the money that her album ‘I Believe In You’ makes, will be used to, “put more books in the hands of children.”

As for the fact that she doesn’t have any children of her own, Parton says that, “God has a plan for everything,” and that, “I think it probably was his plan for me not to have kids so everybody’s kids could be mine. And they are now.”

We are all overjoyed at Parton’s success. We only want to know one thing. When will they be releasing the much-anticipated sequel to her ‘9 to 5’ movie? Her fans have been anxiously waiting for the said sequel for years and there was a bit of a tease during September’s Emmy awards when the cast of 9 to 5 all got up on stage together.

Man Known As The ‘ICU Grandpa’ Snuggles Newborns When Their Families Can’t

Logan, the son of Mary Beth Brulotte, was born 3 and a half months early. He only weighed 1 pound and 15 ounces. His low weight meant that he would have to spend a good amount of time in the intensive care unit. This also meant that Mary Beth would have to leave her son in the hospital for a remarkable amount of time. The LaGrange, Georgia resident hadn’t fully realized how guilty she would feel about this.

The drive from LaGrange to the children’s hospital her where Logan was born is 2 hours long. He husband’s job requires him to work a night shift and she also has a daughter who is 8 years old that she has to take care of. All this meant that she couldn’t visit Logan at the hospital as often as she wanted. “Every mom pictures their baby in their crib all alone crying,” Mary Beth regrettably told TODAY.

That’s why it was a relief when one day in late September she stumbled upon David Deutchman, who is 82 years old, snuggling with her sleeping baby. “I was heading in and was filled with anxiety. It was just wiped away when I saw him there holding Logan fast asleep,” she recalled, “He introduced himself as the ‘ICU grandpa’ and I thought, ‘Oh my God, this can’t be real. This man is like an angel.’ He said he heard Logan crying and asked the nurse if he could hold him and sing him to sleep.”

The ICU Grandpa has been volunteering in children’s hospitals for over 12 years. On Thursdays, he provides warmth and companionships to newborn babies in the neonatal ICU, whose parents can’t be with them at the hospital. “I like the fact that there’s some serious stuff going on and I have an opportunity to make a contribution and help out,” says Deutchman. He finds his youthful energy when he’s with these children. This man is an inspiration to all.
