To make a royal family it takes a real family. The etiquette purists excuse us if we dared to associate an advertisement dedicated to brushes with royal family, but the paraphrase of the claim conceived by Ignazio Colnaghi in 1982 seems the most perfect thing there is to describe the tree genealogical that branches off from the throne of the United Kingdom.

A real parental scale which, growing from branch to branch, becomes ever wider under the protection of Queen Elizabeth II which, on the threshold of its 95 years, can really count a very rich plethora of grandchildren and great-grandchildren. How many? We have tried to censor them for you.

Starting with the direct grandchildren we clearly find them, Harry and William, sons of Charles, the Duke of Windsor. Following Zara Phillips is Peter Phillips, sons of Anna, Princess Royal to which are added the daughters of Andrea, Beatrice of York ed Eugenie of York and those of Edoardo, Louise Windsor is James, viscount of Severn.

But how many royal grandchildren actually have noble titles? Not as many as you can imagine. In the list of those who use the noble titles we find William, George, Charlotte, Louis, Beatrice and Eugenia. What about Harry? No, Harry no.

But if we have to talk about grandchildren, we can only mention those who are often forgotten: we are talking about David Armstrong-Jones, Earl of Snowdon and son of Princess Margaret who had two children: Charles Armstrong-Jones, Viscount Linley and Lady Margarita Armstrong-Jones. To these are added then Lady Sarah Chatto, daughter of Margaret who had two children Arthur Robert Nathaniel Chatto is Samuel Chatto.
