Changes to Burke’s Peerage: what is the world coming to?!

From yesterday’s Sydney Daily Telegraph:

Bastards in Peerage

LONDON: Aristocracy's bible Burke's Peerage and Gentry has succumbed to the 21st century by including illegitimate children.
Among the changes in the guide, which lists the genealogy of every royal and aristocratic family in Europe and the US, will be naming offspring in order of birth, rather than males first.
The new version, due out this year, will bring major changes to the Queen's entry. Her daughter Princess Anne, now listed last of her four children, will be ahead of her younger brothers Princes Andrew and Edward.
