Girls given equal rights to British throne under law changes

Sons and daughters of British monarchs will have an equal right to the throne under changes to the United Kingdom's succession laws agreed to Friday, British Prime Minister David Cameron said.

Representatives of the Commonwealth of Nations approved the changes during a summit meeting, he said. Individual governments of the 16 Commonwealth countries which have the Queen as head of state also must agree to the changes for them to take effect.

The changes would mean a first-born girl has precedence over a younger brother. They also mean that a future British monarch would be allowed to marry a Catholic.

The changes would apply to any future children of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who married this year.
