Wikipedia: Line of succession to the British Throne

I disagree with Wikipedia's inclusion of the sons of Lord Nicholas Windsor, Albert (b 2007) and Leopold (b 2009), who were baptized Roman Catholic and therefore are excluded under the Act of Settlement from the succession, hence the discrepancy by two after Lady Amelia Windsor (currently #34). This apparent error seems to be inherited from the list at the Monarchy's official site, which continues for some reason to include Albert and Leopold and even more oddly lists them after their aunt Lady Helen and her children despite the fact that if they were not Catholic they would surely come before. Some at Wikipedia feel that confirmation, not only baptism, in the Roman Catholic Church is required to exclude descendants from the succession but I am not sure where they get this since confirmation is not in the strict sense even required by the Roman Catholic Church for its members, nor is it mentioned in the Act of Settlement.
