Here’s How Princess Eugenie’s Baby Will Upend the British Line of Succession
ICYMI: Queen Elizabeth's granddaughter Princess Eugenie recently announced that she and her husband Jack Brooksbank are expecting their first child together. How will the royal baby affect the British succession?
The arrival of the newborn does not affect working family members, including Prince William and Prince Charles. However, this does not apply to everyone else.
When the baby is born, it will be the 11th in the line of successors. This means Prince Edward (AKA, the Earl of Wessex) will be bumped into number 12 and so on.
The royals most affected by the arrival of the newborn are Prince Edward (duh) and his two children James, Viscount Severn (12th to 13th) and Lady Louise (13th to 14th). Princess Anne is also included in the mix along with her son Peter Phillips and their two grandchildren Savannah (from 16th to 17th place) and Isla (from 17th to 18th place).
Last but not least, we would like to give an honorable mention to Zara Tindall, who will take 19th place on the throne after the baby is born. Your two children - Mia and Lena - will also get knocked down, but you get the idea.
We first found out about Princess Eugenie's pregnancy last month when she shared a slideshow of photos wearing extremely tiny koala slippers on Instagram. She wrote the post: "Jack and I are really looking forward to early 2021 ... [Baby Emoji]."
