With the birth of the new royal baby, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, on May 6, the entire world is celebrating this new descendant to the British throne. Where does he line up in succession? Seventh, after his father, Prince Harry.
Of course, the 93-year-old Queen Elizabeth II is still sovereign and has been so since 1952. But after her death, there are several members of the Windsor family in line to the throne. With a recent change to the rules of succession, any royal baby born after the date of March 26, 2015, gets a fair shot, instead of it previously going to male preference — which is exciting news for Princess Charlotte and any other royal baby girls born in the future.
As we take a look at the current list of succession, let’s reminisce about how all of the royals got their start, while checking out some very cute baby photos in the process.
