Rules

There are rules about regnant royals versus non regnant. A regent rules for a regnant royal by their side until they are of majority age. Check with debretts. They might have more information on this for you.

I also believe that, in Spain, the constitution explicitly gives precedence to a surviving parent over the next adult in line to be the regent. Conversely, in the UK, I believe the law says the next adult in line automatically becomes the regent.

In summary, rules change from country to country and you may choose any of the aforementioned models for your novel.
