Royal Baby 7th In Line To British Throne!

Royal Baby 7th In Line To British Throne!

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan’s baby, whose name and title are set to be revealed later this week, is seventh in line to the British throne.

The baby’s arrival means Prince Andrew, Harry’s uncle, dropping down to eighth in line.

The immediate line of succession to the throne includes Queen Elizabeth II’s four children and their descendants:

Prince Charles, Prince of Wales

— Born 1948, eldest son of Queen Elizabeth

Prince William, Duke of Cambridge

— Born 1982, Charles’s eldest son

Prince George of Cambridge

— Born 2013, William’s eldest son

Princess Charlotte of Cambridge

— Born 2015, William’s daughter

Prince Louis of Cambridge

— Born 2018, William’s second son

Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex

— Born 1984, Charles’ second son

Royal Baby

— Born on Monday at 5:26am (0426 GMT)

Prince Andrew, Duke of York

— Born 1960, Queen Elizabeth’s second son

Princess Beatrice of York

— Born 1988, Andrew’s eldest daughter

Princess Eugenie of York

— Born 1990, Andrew’s second daughter

Queen Elizabeth’s descendants are followed by the six of her late sister Princess Margaret, her only sibling.

Only people descended from Sophia of Hanover (1630-1714) can inherit the throne, according to the 1701 Act of Settlement.

In changes to the succession laws which came into effect in 2015, males born after October 28, 2011 no longer take precedence over their older sisters.

Also people married to Catholics are no longer excluded, with Downpatrick’s father George Windsor, the Earl of St Andrews, the highest person restored to the line.

The line is a vast tangle of nobility and ordinary, untitled people from all corners of Europe.

Besides Britain, this is also the line of succession to the thrones of 15 other Commonwealth realms.
