What is Britain's Royal Line of Succession?

Queen Elizabeth II is currently the longest-reigning monarch in British history. She and her husband, Prince Phillip, had four sons together. Over the course of her 70+ year reign, her family has continued to grow as her sons, nephews, and nieces had families of their own. As of 2022, the Queen currently has eight grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.

With a family that large, people will definitely have trouble keeping track of the line of succession. Plus, there are extenuating circumstances. Didn’t Prince Andrew lose his titles? Did Prince Harry give up his status as successor, too? Plus, the Perth Agreement shook the path to the throne up, as well. Rather than breaking out the charts and markers, take a look to learn who is in line for the throne — all the way to the Queen’s grandnephew!

Jake didn’t think he’d become a writer when he was growing up in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, but fate had another idea. After barely squeaking through grade 9 English, by the luck of the draw Jake found himself with the most inspiring literature instructor his small town had ever known, and grade 10 English changed his life! Suddenly, evenings once spent at the hockey rink were spent curled up on the couch with the best of Hemingway, Dickens, and John Grisham. A valedictorian address and English degree at the University of Regina later, Jake is proud to call Heywise his favorite place to pen informative quizzes about all his passion projects. If you’re reading a post and pick up a hint of classic English literature, you’re probably reading something by Jake - especially if you come away feeling like a slightly better person for it.
