A Gay Heir to the Throne?

A Labour MP is looking to change the law to allow gay children from a civil partnership to become monarch.

Paul Flynn has put in the proposal, which was being debated in Parliament today, which will mean that a gay child to a Royal couple could ascend to the throne, regardless of its sex and whether it was adopted or born through artificial insemination.

The bill, called The Passage of the Succession to the Crown bill, has come under criticism from Prince Charles in the past, as he feels it is being pushed through to fast. However, Paul Flynn is seeking to win approval with the clause: "In the event of the heir to the throne contracting a civil partnership, any progeny of that partnership by adoption or artificial insemination should qualify to inherit the throne."



In other Royal news, Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg is looking to remove the ban on the monarch being a Catholic. He is proposing a "regent" would be made Supreme Governor of the Church of England.
