Crown Bill expected to pass both Houses of Parliament. Right now the Bill is in the House of Commons and should be passed onto Her Majesty for Royal Assent which will make the United Kingdom a monarchy with absolute primogeniture. I still have not heard any mention of what will happen to the titles of Prince of Wales. Will a female heir apparent be titled Princess of Wales? I think one of the reasons it has not been mentioned is that Her Majesty, as the Font of All Honors, is in control of how this title is bestowed. The title Prince of Wales is not a hereditary title and it is created for the heir to the throne at the sovereigns discretion. Therefore it is entirely possible that should the Duke of Cambridge have a daughter first, she may, as heir to the throne someday be granted the title Princess of Wales in her own right.

Once the Crown Bill passes both houses and is signed by the queen those that had lost their place in succession due to being married to a Catholic or converting to Catholicism will be restored to their place in the succession. Here is a list of the 50 people in line for the Crown once the Bill passes.
