Thanks for the information, Mayering! Fascinating, as usual. I get that William's daughter Charlotte (born 2015) is now in the "chronological line", but Annie's line is at the back of the que, so to speak. Does the change in the rule move her granddaughters up? Is the change retroactive for children born before then?

It wouldn’t change anything even if retrospective as I understand it.

Charles is the eldest child so comes 1st
Will is his eldest so next
Then George if George were to not survive Will then Charlotte comes next even if the new one is a boy.

Default Re Daylight Savings Time and Birth Certificates

I'm in Australia and some years ago I asked my sister (paediatrician who does a lot of neo-natal work) about exactly the situation posited (twins born with change from DST to regular time between them). She said that during DST there was an annotation of the form showing that DST was in effect, so the correct timing of events could be ascertained. That made sense, since the people making these kind of records are usually not too silly to see such obvious complications and account for them. Of course, different jurisdictions may have other arrangements.
Being able to determine the "true time" of an event would also have legal relevance for wills and succession where certain inheritances are conditional on the order of survivorship or the particular timing of a death.

Interesting thread!

We got "The Crown" on Blu-Ray for Christmas, and have been slowly viewing the episodes. I was interested to learn that Prince Philip gave up his Greek heritage and adopted the surname Montbatten, in order to be eligible to marry Elizabeth.

Also learned that he wished for Charles and any other of his children to keep the surname Montbatten, a controversial idea that was opposed by others in the government, and a wish that he was not granted.

Kings and queens seem to me to be more at the whims of their governments than our Presidents.

Phillip had to give up both his Greek claim and also his Danish claim prior to marriage, to the point he was technically a commoner an hour before his wedding.

The link has a summary of the first hundred in line

Save I thought becoming a Catholic was no longer a disqualifying factor, or is it only marrying one that was removed from th ist?
