Recently it has come to be talked about quite often what will be the succession to the throne of the Queen Elizabeth II. The reason is simple: the recent pandemic has forced the regina to isolate themselves and withdraw from public commitments for an indefinite period. But in case of abdication from the throne, what would be the official line of succession of the royal family? Obviously the first descendant to the role of king is Charles, Prince of Wales and eldest son of the queen and Prince Philip. Following is William and, of course, George. Fourth to succeed the throne Charlotte, second child of the Dukes of Cambridge and after her, little Louis.

Only sixth in line of succession is Harry, Duke of Sussex, who, despite his “retirement” from the royal family, remains a legitimate descendant of the queen as well as little Archie who is seventh in line of succession.

Below the tenth place we find, in the eleventh place, the newborn son of Eugenia and of Jack Brooksbank who bypassed Edward, the Queen’s youngest son and her descendants: son James (thirteenth) and daughter Lady Louise (fourteenth). Only in fifteenth place, as a woman (male children and their descendants are preferred in line of succession only for those born before 2011, the year in which the rules were changed and the order of birth is simply valid), the tireless Princess Anna followed by her son Peter Phillips and her daughters Savannah and Isla. Finally, last is Zara Tindall who, as Anna’s daughter, ranks nineteenth in the line of succession.
