She is only 2 years old and is the daughter of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Pay attention because she's already making history in the British monarchy. Little Charlotte, born on May 2, 2015, would be the first woman of royalty not to lose the throne because of the possible birth of a male brother.

This true milestone in the monarchy is given thanks to the law of succession of the crown, approved in 2013 and allowing the succession only depending on the date of birth and not the gender, as before was established. The new guideline only applies to all children born as of October 28, 2011.

Currently, the first in the line of succession to the throne is Prince Charles, the second William, the third, his son, George and the fourth would be Charlotte.

The little girl's path is long, but that is not the reason why her role is less symbolic. The role of women is changing in the world and royalty cannot be left behind. Undoubtedly, this is a very positive change within the British monarchy. In the case of the Spanish monarchy, the priority for men is still a reality. Therefore, if Princess Leonor has a male brother, she should yield the reign.
