PRINCE LOUIS ARTHUR CHARLES

In 2018 when Prince William and Duchess Kate had their third child and second son, Prince Louis, a phenomenal change in the Royal family occurred. Typically, his birth meant that he would replace his older sister, Charlotte, as fourth in line.

However, the Succession to the Crown Act 2013 ruled out this gender disparity, allowing Charlotte to keep her status despite having a younger brother. Prince Louis is now fifth in line.
