Harry and Meghan’s Baby

The youngest Royal of all is the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s baby, who is due to be born in spring 2019. The newcomer won’t automatically be titled Prince or Princess, due to a decree issued by King George V in 1917. The baby will immediately by made seventh in line to the throne, though, just behind his or her father.

At the time of writing, it still isn’t known whether they are expecting a boy or a girl. Yet, that hasn’t stopped the public from betting on the baby’s name. According to the Royal baby odds at Paddy Power, the most popular names are Diana (3/1), Grace (7/1) and Alexandrina (12/1). At 13/1, Charles is the lowest-price male name.


Prince Louis of Cambridge

Currently the Queen’s tiniest great-grandson, Louis Arthur Charles was born on the 23rd of April 2018 in London. The third child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge is fifth in line to the throne.

Louis was baptised at St James’s Palace when just a few months old, with godparents including Nicholas van Cutsem, Guy Pelly and Lucy Middleton.


Princess Charlotte of Cambridge

Born on the 2nd of May 2015, Little Charlotte is fourth in line to the throne. Her full name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana and her full title is Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge. Several landmarks across the UK were turned pink to celebrate the arrival of the nation’s first new princess to be born since 1950.

Since then, Charlotte has been classed a major style icon and has shown off her now-famous dancing skills. The number-crunchers at Brand Finance worked out that she is likely to be worth some £3 billion to the country’s economy over the years.


Prince George of Cambridge

The oldest child of William and Kate is third in line to the UK throne, with only his own father and grandfather ahead of him. He was born on the 22nd of July in 2013 and began going to school in September of 2017.

It is widely anticipated that he may one day become King. However, former BBC Royal Correspondent Christopher Lee suggests in his book, Monarchy, Past Present and... Future? that this is unlikely.

James, Viscount Severn

Less well-known than the other Royal youngsters, the only son of the Earl and Countess of Wessex was born on 17 December 2007 and given the full name of James Alexander Philip Theo Mountbatten-Windsor. He was born four years after his sister, Lady Louise.

He is 11th in line to the throne, so it is highly unlikely that we will ever see him wear the crown. Like his sister, James was given a courtesy title, which many views as being a way to keep him away from the pressure of being weighed down by a formal Royal title.

The popularity of these cute young Royals is widely regarded as being one of the main reasons for the recent upsurge in interest in the Windsor family. They are sure to provide us with lots of entertainment and news stories in the years to come.
