Why Princess Charlotte will make history

It's not long now until the Duchess of Cambridge gives birth to her third child, and we can't wait to find out if it's going to be a little prince or princess! If Kate gives birth to a boy however, two year-old Charlotte will be the first Royal to not lose her spot in line to the throne if her younger sibling is a boy.

This is a result of the Succession of the Crown Act 2013 which was passed when Kate was pregnant with George and stated that succession to the crown would be wholly based on birth order rather than gender. 

This means that Charlotte will remain fourth in line to the throne after her grandfather Prince Charles who is first, father Prince William who is second and brother Prince George who is third.

We're also VERY excited to find out what the newest addition to the Royal family will be named! Bookies are currently saying the Duchess and Cambridge and Prince William are most likely to have a girl. If they do, the most likely names according to William Hill are Mary, Alice, Elizabeth and Victoria. 

If their third child is a boy however, William Hill are predicting he could be named Arthur, Albert or James. There is also speculation however that if the baby is a girl it could be named after Princess Diana perhaps.
