The British Line Of Succession

The British Line Of Succession.

This is a pictorial snapshot of who will take the English throne after Queen Elizabeth II. You may have got the first three generations correct, but I am sure you have not the foggiest idea who else is down the line, just in case there is an unpremeditated catastrophic accident that wiped off the first three successive generations at a stroke. God forbid, of course, but here is the lineage.

Queen Elizabeth II became Queen of the United Kingdom and Head of the Commonwealth on 6th February 1952. She is head of the British Royal Family, has 4 children, 8 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchilden, and is 91 years, 3 months, and 7 days old. She is the 32nd great-granddaughter of King Alfred the Great who was the first effective King of England 871-899. She was crowned at Westminster Abbey on 2nd June 1953, nearly eighteen months after she succeeded her father, King George VI who died on 6th February 1952. As of today she has reigned for 65 years, 5 months, and 21 days. In 2012 Queen Elizabeth II celebrated the Diamond 60th Jubilee of her reign, and 2nd June 2013 was the 60th anniversary of her coronation. The 6th February 2017 was the Blue Sapphire 65th anniversary of her reign. On 21st December 2007 she became the oldest reigning British monarch having lived longer than Queen Victoria who died 22nd January 1901 aged 81 years, 7 months and 29 days.
