The Next 26 Royals in Line for the British Throne

House Beautiful Logo By Mehera Bonner, Shannon Barbour of House Beautiful | Slide 1 of 27: Queen Elizabeth II is the longest reigning monarch in British history, and she has seen. some. things. Like, so many things that The Crown had to add on an entire extra season just to cover all the drama. And while we're all pretty familiar with Her Majesty's direct heirs to the British throne (hi, Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George), the royal line of succession stretches back at least 26 people deep. And yes, Princess Charlotte is high up on the list thanks to a shake-up in 2013 that got rid of male primogeniture—a rule that stated male heirs took precedence over their female siblings, even if they were not born first. But keep in mind that any royal children born before 2013 are fresh out of luck (like Princess Anne and her family), so the line of succession can be a littttttle confusing. Which is where we come in! Here are all the family members following in Queen Elizabeth's well-heeled shoes, just in case you're wondering what kind of chance your personal faves (hi, Prince Harry and Prince Louis) have at being King/Queen one day.
