Order of Succession to the British Throne

This list consists of all eligible descendants of King George V (1865-1936). Roman Catholics are excluded, though their spouses no longer are. Illegitimate children are also excluded. Male-preference primogeniture applies to individuals born prior to the Perth Agreement of October 2011; since 26 March 2015 absolute primogeniture applies to those born since then.

Wikipedia: Line of succession to the British Throne

I disagree with Wikipedia's inclusion of the sons of Lord Nicholas Windsor, Albert (b 2007), Leopold (b 2009), and Louis (b 2014), who were baptized Roman Catholic and therefore are excluded under the Act of Settlement from the succession, hence the discrepancy by three after Lady Amelia Windsor (currently #42). This apparent error seems to be inherited from the old list at the Monarchy's official site, which used to include the three boys and even more oddly listed them after their aunt Lady Helen and her children despite the fact that if they were not Catholic they would surely come before.
