How does this pregnancy effect the monarchy at Buckingham Palace?  Well, even if William and Kate’s baby is a girl, she can expect to inherit the throne from her father, regardless of whether any other child the royal couple has is a boy. Until a recent rule change, a male heir historically took precedence.
