Slightly off topic, but for an adopted child, Thomas/Ruby looks a lot like dad Christopher Guest during his "Spinal Tap" days. The face & bod are chubbier, but an image search of Guest from the "Spinal Tap" era shows that the resemblance is strong. IMO, it's unmistakable.

Because Thomas/Ruby is adopted, he cannot inherit his father's barony to become Lord Hayden-Guest, 6th Baron Hayden-Guest, though he & his sister can use the title, The Honourable. I wonder if Thomas would have "transitioned" to Ruby if the rules allowed him to become Baron Hayden-Guest himself. Wikipedia uses The Hon. before the names of both Curtis-Guest kids: The Hon. Anne Guest and The Hon. Ruby Guest.

Under the GRA, men with royal titles who transition keep those titles and inheritances.

BUT!!! Women cannot transition to men and be eligible to inherit those titles.

My, my, my. It’s almost as if it’s all self serving for men!

Anyway, I think he couldn’t inherit his father’s title anyway because it was voted to do away with inherited peerage no? Or would he still keep the title?

The families keep the titles, but they no longer inherit the 'right' to sit in the House of Lords & make laws that everyone else has to live by. We still have 92 of the buggers squatting in parliament though.
