The first one to be born, followed by the second one, would be my guess.

Not sure on that one. There is a queen right now. So they do not dismiss female descendents.

I'm not an expert but my understanding is if a girl was born she would be first in line to the throne. If later a boy is born then he would take precedence over the older girl. So you could have several girls all born and then the last one a boy and he would be first in line over his older sisters.

However there is a move to change all that and give girls the same rights as boys in which case the first born would be first in line no matter the sex.

Not sure where they are with that change of rules.

Not any more. Rules were changed so that the first born takes the throne, irrespective of sex.

Girls equal in throne succession

They haven't been changed yet.
The event in your linked article was the Commonwealth countries agreeing that they would change the rules, but the agreement then has to be carried out by changing the laws in the various countries.
When the news broke about the new baby, the news report was that the government was responding by speeding up the change. They probably intend to make it law before the birth.

Good point. It was being discussed in Parliament and agreed to though (by all parties), so i don't think it will be much longer.

Very good question.

Would not want to be the Doctor!!!

You made me think of this-- What if the child was mentally handicapped? (As in very low functioning)
Certainly don't wish that! But it is a valid question.

If this was obvious and unchallengeable at an early stage, the child could be set aside by Act of Parliament, in the same way that the Stuarts have already been set aside.
If they were already on the throne by the time the question arose, there's always the solution adopted for George III- get the nearest close relative to be Regent.
