What a shame cousins don't marry anymore. Then Willam could marry either Zara or Beatrice and give us a Queen who "knows the ropes".

I personally would like to see Prince William marry Princess Madeline of Sweden and Prince Harry marry Charlotte Casiraghi of Monaco.

Of course if Harry made that match he would be out of the line of succession due to the fact that she is Roman Catholic.

Unless Charlotte converted to the Anglican Church prior to the marriage.

It was my understanding that the British royals cannot keep their place in the line of succession if they marry anyone who has been Catholic (even if the Catholic converts).

Has any king/queen been succeeded by a grandchild?

Has any king/queen been succeeded by a grandchild?

For example, if Prince Charles passes away before becoming king, does Prince William become #1 in the line of succesion?(thus becoming king upon the passing of the Queen)

Why isn't Princess Anne #4 in the line of succession?

Why isn't Princess Anne #4 in the line of succession?
Is it only because she's a woman?

Thanks!

It is because her brothers are ahead of her in line to the throne and they all have children, who in turn steps into the line directly after their respective fathers. Thus, for every child that Charles, Andrew and Edward have Anne slips down the line a notch. There is also a thread under British Royals about the line of succession.

Yes and yes.


King Carl Gustav in Sweden succeeded his grandfather because his father died when he was only a small child.

It's every male child, I believe.


Charles
William
Harry
Andrew
Edward


I believe is how it goes.

In Britain, Richard II and George III both succeeded their grandfathers, since their fathers (Edward the Black Prince and Frederick Prince of Wales)predeceased their own fathers (Edward III and George II).

If the Catholic converts, they keep their place in line. At the time of the wedding, the spouse can't be Catholic. If they were Catholic before the wedding and convert to something else (the arrangement proposed for Marie Christine), or if they convert to Catholic after the wedding (The Duchess of Kent), it has no impact on succession status.

It's the males before the females in a given lineage. Prince Charles and his sons precede Andrew and his daughters, who precede Edward and his daughter, who precede Anne and her son and daughter. If Andrew or Edward were to have a son, that son would precede his sisters but not his female cousins born to older brothers.

If Andrew had a son, he would precede Beatrice and Eugenie. If Edward had a son, he would precede Louise but would not precede Beatrice and Eugenie.

Yes- in a way. If Andrew & Sarah had had a son who was born in lets say 1995 he would be before Beatrice & Eugenie. Andrew's kids take precedence over Edward, just like Edward's daughter takes precedence over Anne. Anne's kids are ahead of Princess Margaret's kids.
Here is the line of Succession to the British Throne:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Line_of...British_Throne
Males come before females in their branches of the family.

I was incorrect it is diffucult to see what place a person is in a line of to a throne of over more than 800 people. King constantine Of Hellens (Greece) is 408 in line to the british throne.

There's no point getting too caught up in someone's exact position in the Line of Succession once we move out of the extended Royal Family because births and deaths (and marriage to Roman Catholics, conversion to Catholicism etc) mean the ranking constantly changes.

Could we keep the discussion to the British Line of Succession please.
Some posts concerning succession issues in other countries have been removed.

thanks,
