Canada’s bid to block Duchess of Cambridge’s daughter from becoming Queen – The Daily Express

June 13, 2013

According to the Daily Express:

Prince William and Kate’s first child may be unable to inherit the throne because of a legal challenge in Canada.

…constitutional experts at Laval University in Quebec City, lodged a case in Quebec Superior Court on Friday.

They allege that the ­Canadian government acted unconstitutionally by failing to seek the approval of each of the ­country’s 10 provinces before agreeing to the changes.

They also say the new succession laws would still prevent a Catholic or other ­non-Anglican from becoming the monarch, in breach of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
