Re: Gender neutral succession
I am not so sure in the Spanish case. Even if the present legislation gives the Queen’s consort the title of Prince, I think it will not be accepted when Leonor becomes Queen.
Anyway, I do not understand the double standards in this case. How can one accept equality between men and women when they become monarchs, but not when they become consorts? I will never understand it. In countries like Spain, we have always had Kings, Dukes, Counts, etc, consort and there has never been a problem. Why are those countries which have never/seldom allowed female succession so reluctant to accept this concept?
Exactly, thank you.
