Following the death of Queen Elizabeth, a new royal line of succession has been established.

King Charles III has now taken the throne, while his wife Camila has become the Queen Consort.

Next in line will be Prince William, who has now become the Duke of Cornwall and Cambridge, and is expected to become the Prince of Wales.

His three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis follow their father in the line of succession.

There was a time when Prince Louis would have been ahead of Princess Charlotte on the list since a younger brother could jump ahead of his older sister.
