The Commonwealth is celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, while celebrations erupt across Britain and beyond to celebrate the Queen’s remarkable 70 years on the throne.

From pageants to street parties, the range of activities is varied and exciting, with something for everyone.

One thing has become apparent though, for all the frivolity and joy, and despite the outpouring of love for her, memories of the Queen’s old age are ever more present.

On June 3, she had to cancel the Thanksgiving service at St. Paul’s Cathedral, which she had been looking forward to.

In a statement, Buckingham Palace said: “The Queen thoroughly enjoyed today’s birthday parade and flyby but had a few complaints.

“Taking into account the travel and activities required to attend tomorrow’s national thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral, Her Majesty has concluded with great reluctance that she will not attend.”

Against this background, what is the succession to the throne?

1. Charles, Prince of Wales

The next in line to the throne, Prince Charles, will be crowned after the Queen’s death.

Charles had to be patient; At 73, he’s a long way from being a young man with grandchildren of his own.

His wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, was made Queen Consort by the current monarch when Charles ascended the throne.

2. Prince William, Duke of Cambridge

It’s likely that given the age of his father Charles, Prince William will eventually end up with the crown on his head.

William and his wife Kate – the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – are seen by many as the future of the family and it will likely be their bloodline that sees the crown fall in the end.

3. Prince George of Cambridge

As of today, Prince George is third in line to the throne



Prince George, who is also likely to become king at some point, is third in line to the throne as the eldest child of William and Kate.

If he has children of his own one day, his eldest will probably one day become heir to the throne as well.

4. Princess Charlotte of Cambridge

Princess Charlotte, who is fourth in line to the throne at the time of writing, will likely never sit on the throne.

While she is currently high on the list of people to whom the crown could pass, if George had children, the succession to them would differ.

If George decides he doesn’t want to be king before he has children, there’s a chance Charlotte will end up on the throne.

5. Prince Louis of Cambridge

A new fan favorite after his heroic expressions during the RAF flyby over Buckingham Palace, George is unlikely to find himself back on the throne given all the barriers preventing Charlotte plus the added trap of succession inherent in her bloodline differs .

6. Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex

Prince Harry will likely never become king, for the same reason as Charlotte, unless extreme circumstances arise affecting William and his bloodline.

The remaining top 10 heirs to the throne

  • 7. Archie Mountbatten-Windsor
  • 8. Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor
  • 9. Prince Andrew, Duke of York
  • 10. Princess Beatrice, Mrs. Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi
