Succession to the Crown Act 2013
The Succession to the Crown Act, which was passed earlier this year (and signed by Queen Elizabeth II, remains in limbo, and is not officially the law. Lord President, Nick Clegg, has not stated that the Act is the law of the land. The other 15 realms have not passed the legislation. The law is facing serious hurdles in Canada and in Australia.
It is also entirely possible that due to the birth of Prince George, the proposed legislation could be tabled in some or all of the other countries.
Thus, Lord St. Andrews and Prince Michael of Kent remain excluded from the line of succession.
