Abstract:     
The United Kingdom Government proposes to consult other Commonwealth nations about removing some of the discriminatory aspects of the rules concerning succession to the throne. This article considers the potential effect upon the Crown in Australia of British legislation changing the rules of succession to the throne. It addresses the question of who has the power to change the rules of succession with respect to the Crown in Australia and proposes a solution based on federal principles.
