Here's What The British Line of Succession Looks Like After Meghan Markle's Pregnancy Announcement

As the British Royal Family keeps expanding, the line of succession is also changing.

After Meghan Markle announced she and Prince Harry were expecting a second baby, and the birth of Princess Eugenie‘s baby boy, the line has shifted down a few spots for the children and grandchildren of Queen Elizabeth.

There have been some things that have stayed the same, like Prince Charles still first in line to become King of England following his 94-year-old mother in the role.

When he ascends to the throne, it’s assumed that Archie and his unborn sibling, who have no titles at the moment, might receive one. However, that is still yet to be confirmed.
