Princess Alexandra of Hanover removed from British line of succession

Princess Alexandra of Hanover has been removed from the British line of succession according to Point de Vue-magazine.

The 19-year-old daughter of Prince Ernst August of Hanover and Princess Caroline of Monaco recently converted to Catholicism, which disqualifies her from being in the British Royal lineage.

Princess Alexandra is the 12th in line to the Monegasque throne.

She grew up as a Lutheran – in line with her father’s side of the family – but she recently converted to the religion of her mother, who has been Catholic all her life.

Because the British monarch is also the head of the Church of England, monarchic rules prohibit a monarch from a Catholic or other non-Protestant faith.
