If you have always wondered how far is Prince George in the line of succession to the British throne, here we bring you a list of the royal family members that are closest to wear the crown.

The birth of Prince Harry's first son, on May 6 of this year, has placed the new member in seventh place in the line of succession to the British throne that his great grandmother Elizabeth II occupies and has displaced the other members of The Royal Family.

These are the top 10 in the line of succession to the British Crown. The law that gave priority to men over women was abolished in 2011, but it applies to those born before that date.

PRINCE CHARLES

The firstborn of the queen and therefore first heir to the throne is Charles, Prince of Wales, whose first marriage was with the famous Princess Diana. Amid rumors of infidelities, Charles divorced Diana in 1996, a year before the death of the princess, and remarried in 2005 with Camila, Duchess of Cornwall.

PRINCE WILLIAM

Charles and Diana's firstborn married Kate Middleton. He is the second in the line of succession to the throne, only behind his father. Some voices have pointed out in recent years that the Queen would prefer to abdicate in favor of her grandson, whom she could see more prepared to reign.

PRINCE GEORGE

Kate Middleton gave birth to her first child, George, on July 23, 2013, at the same clinic where her husband was born, Saint Mary's hospital. He is the third in the line of succession to the throne after his father and grandfather, Prince Charles.

PRINCESS CHARLOTTE

Two years after George was born, on May 2, 2015, the Dukes of Cambridge welcomed their daughter Charlotte. According to the old laws of the United Kingdom, they prevented women from accessing the Crown if they had a male brother.

In 2015 this law was amended, and in this way, Charlotte has secured the fourth place in the line of succession even having another male brother, Prince Louis, born just over a year ago.

PRINCE LOUIS

The third son of the Dukes of Cambridge was born on April 23 last year and ranks fifth in the line of succession to the British throne, after his grandfather the Prince of Wales. George and Charlotte's little brother is especially expressive in their gestures and recently learned to walk.

PRINCE HARRY

The youngest son of Charles and Diana married the American actress Meghan Markle in 2018, and the famous couple just had their first child.

ARCHIE HARRISON MOUNTBATTEN-WINDSOR

The baby arrives at a time when he speaks more than ever about the succession of Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-lived monarch in history and who, for the moment, has no plans to abdicate in favor of her son Charles.

The parents have expressed their wish that the boy bears no distinction. Nor will he be a prince, since he is not a direct heir to the throne or son of the heir, so he will be treated as Master Archie.

Beatrice studied Art History for three years at Goldsmiths College after her father's plans for her to study at a school in Switzerland were frustrated due to the young woman's dyslexia.

PRINCESS EUGENIE

Eugenie is Beatrice's younger sister and the tenth in the line of succession to the throne. She studied Art History at the University of Newcastle. Unlike her sister Beatrice, the princess has remained low profile and is her father's favorite daughter.

Behind all the members that appear in this list is now Prince Edward, the youngest son of Queen Elizabeth, and his children, Jacques, who is now the twelfth in the line of succession, and his sister Louisa, the thirteenth.
