Lady Weymouth said that the reason they contracted with a surrogate in California and the baby was born in California was because that California had the strictest laws in the US , protecting the legal parents. The parents are the legal and biological child of the parents per California law. She said they deliberately avoided his conception and birth in the UK because of the UK laws. I postulate they consulted with a British attorney expert in inheritance law prior to the baby being conceived, to nail all of this down in inheritance, etc. The aristocrats play by different rules than everybody else.
Wonderful! Thanks for the info EA
Problem solved....now we can move on from the inheritance law, and fawn over that they have a healthy child, love each other, their children, and are happy and healthy.
