Royal Succession Act 2013

8 Certain people excluded from succession to the Crown on marrying without consent of Sovereign


A person who, after the changeover, proposes to marry, and who immediately before marrying is one of the 6 people next in the line of succession to the Crown, must obtain before marrying the consent to the marriage concerned of the Sovereign in right of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.


The effect of a person’s failure to comply with subsection (1) is that the person and the person’s descendants from the marriage concerned are excluded from succeeding to the Crown.
