King­dom Come

India Today - - SNAPSHOTS -

The sun set on the Em­pire a few short decades ago, but it’s only now that the monar­chy has ruled in favour of its daugh­ters. Bri­tish prime min­is­ter David Cameron re­cently an­nounced equal rights of royal women to the throne, over­turn­ing cen­turies of an ar­chaic law that placed women last in the line of as­cen­dants. The law comes iron­i­cally af­ter the na­tion has been ruled by an Em­press for al­most 60 years. Not only that, Bri­tain was also home to Mar­garet “Iron Lady” Thatcher, who proved to be one of the tough­est lead­ers in the world. There’s po­ten­tial then, that the Wil­liam and Kate union will yield more than just a dry, taste­less wed­ding kiss.
