As the third child of Prince William and Kate Middleton is due soon, there is probably a question in the minds of royal family fans: where are the children of Prince William and Kate Middleton going? The three could theoretically rise to the throne, Prince George is currently behind his father. For Prince George to take the lead, Prince William himself would not be in the picture, so it's important not to survive.
As explained by The Sun Prince Charles is the eldest child of Queen Elizabeth II, meaning he is the heir to the throne. That's right, if Queen Elizabeth II dies or leaves the throne of her own accord. And as the paper shows, some insiders think that Queen Elizabeth II could abdicate and entrust her son to the throne while she is still alive. (The queen celebrates her 92nd birthday next month, and it is rumored that she could abdicate when she turns 95.)
However, Prince Charles would take over the throne on the departure of Queen Elizabeth II. After that, things would fall on Prince William. If he was unable to take the throne, it would be Prince George's turn next, followed by Princess Charlotte and then Williams and Middleton's baby on the way.
Prince Harry, meanwhile, slides down with each birth of his brother's children. He succeeds William and Middleton's children. And when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have children, they will be standing in line after their father. (For her part, Markle will not be in line after the wedding.)
And if you wonder about Princess Charlotte's place in the succession question, her position comes thanks to a recent change in the record. After William and Middleton's wedding in 2011, Parliament and the leaders of the 16 British Commonwealth nations voted to change centuries of rule over gender and royal succession. Previously, women could be surpassed in the line of succession by younger brothers, but Prime Minister David Cameron introduced laws to change that.
"These rules are outdated and must change," Cameron said at the time about the monarchy at the meeting of the heads of state of the Commonwealth. "The idea that a younger son should become a monarch instead of an older daughter simply because he is a man is simply not acceptable." The Act of Succession was passed in 2013 and entered into force in 2015, shortly before Princess Charlotte's birth.
