After Elizabeth II: Who is in the Royal line of Succession?

On September 8, 2022, Queen Elizabeth II passed away at the age of 96.

The passing of the Queen is a historic event that will surely reverberate and resonate well beyond the shores of Great Britain and the Commonwealth.

Her reign of 70 years was the longest in British history, and her constant presence gave generations of Britons, as well as millions of people around the world, a sense of stability, continuity, and reassurance in times of both peace and turbulence.

Though her passing may have been inevitable, to millions of people in the United Kingdom and around the world it seemed unimaginable.

In due time, the focus of the world's attention will eventually shift to the succession to the royal throne of Charles, Prince of Wales.

The Royal Line of Succession

#1. The Prince of Wales

Seventy-three years is a very long time to wait to assume the reins of the position for which you have always been destined, and Charles has been waiting in the wings since the day he was born.

Over time, his popularity has seen highs and lows, and his personal life has generated multiple cycles of scandal, scrutiny, and sympathy.

#2. The Duke of Cambridge

As the first child of Charles and Diana, the quiet prince was always destined for the spotlight and has never known life outside the royal fishbowl.

He has held a special place in the hearts of Britons and royal followers since he was a child, and that emotional connection was only strengthened during his parents' very public divorce and the tragic death of his mother in 1997.

#3. Prince George of Cambridge
