If she was queen, would her partner be a king or prince?

VERITY LUSH: I can’t get my head around the general fakeness today

Have your say

After their stunning wedding, Wills and Kate fever has struck again with the wonderful news that they are expecting their first child.

On a positive note bearing in mind Kate’s condition, I’ve always felt that bad morning sickness means a strong pregnancy. Let’s hope so.

As I broke the news on air, listeners started to talk about succession.

Now, with new laws, even if it’s a girl, she will be third in line to the throne.

One bright listener then asked, if she became queen, would her husband be called king or, like Philip, would he be a prince?

A very good point. If equality is the issue with the new child, surely it should be with their partner too.
