Charles fear over reform of heir laws; ROYALTY.

NEW laws to esnsure William and Kate's first child is heir to the throne if they have a girl are on a Parliamentary fast-track, despite concerns raised by Prince Charles.

Deputy PM Nick Clegg wants the Bill passed with just a few hours of debate.

But pals of the Prince said he fears a secondary reform allowing an heir to marry a Roman Catholic could have unintended consequences, because Catholics must raise children in their own faith.

The ban on a Catholic being King or Queen will not be axed, meaning an heir raised as a Catholic, could be barred from becoming monarch. MP Keith Vaz said: "His concerns must be addressed."
