Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting their first child in the next spring. The news was officially announced today after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived in Austalia for their first Royal Visit overseas.
The announcement and prospective arrival of the new baby will see a change in the chronology of succession to the throne of England.
Meghan’s child is said to be the 7th line to the heir, knocking off Prince Andrew, who is the second son of the Queen, into eighth place.
Likewise, the new child will also eligible to rule England be after cousins Prince George and Princess Charlotte by virtue of their father, Prince William being older than Harry and second in line to the throne.
In 2013, the U.K. Parliament passed a law allowing the succession of siblings to be decided by age, rather than gender. The previous rules meant that an older sister would come further down the pecking order than a younger brother.
When the new baby arrives, this will be the new order of succession.
