Kate & Prince William Open to Adoption?

From Gather:
Kate Middleton and Prince William are rumored to be open to adopting a child sometime in the future, but the Queen has other ideas. One of the most important duties for the Royal couple is ensuring there is a legitimate heir to the throne. Only a child born to Kate and Will is eligible for the ascent to the throne.

A source has come forward and spoken with OK! Magazine and dished on the royal family's most intimate details. According to this unnamed insider, "Their priority is to have heirs of their own to ascend to the throne, but afterward, they feel they feel there is nothing to stop them from doing such a beautiful and humane thing as adopting a child."

Prince Charles is open to adoption, but it is ultimately Queen Elizabeth, who will have the final say. According to the insider, the Queen has no qualms about the Duke and Duchess adopting, but "only after they have at least two heirs to the throne!"
Well, wouldn't that be a special mixed-bio-and-adopted family?  Where the adopted child is the only one NOT eligible for the throne?

I wonder if this is a "thumbing your nose to protocol" move on their part, if they are indeed challenging the policy.

And so what happens if they have infertility issues and no biological child... Guess it would be up to Harry? The whole monarchy thing needs to be done away with.
