Last in Line for the British Throne

Sounds like a role for Anne Hathaway: Karin Vogel in Rostock, Germany, is the last person in the line of succession for the British throne, meaning she would become queen if the 4,972 people before her died. She is a descendant of Sophia of Hanover, a German princess chosen by the English Parliament to inherit the crown in 1701. "I can lean back and relax," says the 38-year-old Vogel. "It is really very comforting that one doesn't have to worry about Great Britain."
