The new or­der of suc­ces­sion

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Royal News -

Harry and Meghan’s first­born will be seventh in line to the throne. Prince Charles is the heir with Prince Wil­liam sec­ond in or­der of suc­ces­sion, fol­lowed by his three chil­dren, Ge­orge, Char­lotte and Louis. Harry is sixth in line.

And al­though baby Sus­sex will be the off­spring of a prince, he or she will not be a prince or princess or hold the ti­tle HRH due to a royal de­cree made by King Ge­orge V in 1917. How­ever, the Queen could de­cide to change this.

If Harry and Meghan have a daugh­ter, she would be Lady Mount­bat­ten-wind­sor, while a son would be­come the Earl of Dum­bar­ton.
