Meet All of Queen Elizabeth II’s Grandchildren

Everyone knows about Prince William and Prince Harry, and plenty have heard of Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie. But Queen Elizabeth II has four other grandchildren, for a grand total of eight, along with 12 great-grandchildren.

The wedding of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and her late husband, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, took place at Westminster Abbey on November 20, 1947 (at the time, Her Majesty was still known as the “Princess of York“). Their first child, Prince Charles of Wales, came along less than one year later. He was followed by Princess Anne, Princess Royal, in 1950, Prince Andrew of York, and Prince Edward Earl of Essex in 1963. In addition, as of March 2022, the union of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip has resulted in a total of eight grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. Now that’s a big royal family tree! Prepare to meet them all.

Queen Elizabeth’s grandchildren

Age: 45

Parents: Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips

Although Prince Charles is Queen Elizabeth’s eldest child, his younger sister, Princess Anne, was the first to marry in 1973 and give the Queen her first grandchild, Peter Phillips, born November 15, 1977.

When he was born, Phillips was fifth in line to the throne and now stands at 18th; not that this makes much difference to Phillips, who appears to have embraced life as a commoner. That said, Phillips doesn’t always avoid the limelight. Recently, he was paid to appear in a milk ad for Chinese television. And back in 2008, he and his now-former wife, Autumn, sold the rights to their wedding photos to Hello! magazine for nearly $1 million.

2. Zara Phillips Tindall

Age: 41

Parents: Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips

Princess Anne’s and Captain Mark’s second child, Zara, was born May 15, 1981, just two months before the iconic wedding of Prince Charles to Lady Diana Spencer. Zara shares with the Queen a passion for the somewhat rarified hobby of horseback riding; a highly accomplished equestrian, Zara silver-medaled in the 2012 Olympics.

In 2011, Zara married a fellow athlete, rugby player Mike Tindall. Zara and Mike have three children, Mia, Lena, and Lucas. Although Zara is only the Queen’s second grandchild and was, at birth, number six in the order of succession, her place has now dropped to 21.

3. Prince William

Age: 40

Parents: Prince Charles of Wales and Diana, Princess of Wales

Prince William was born on June 21, 1982, less than a year after his parents’ wedding, Charles and Diana. Because he is the son of the person next in line to the throne, William leapfrogged right over both of Princess Anne’s children in the order of succession to become second in line, and he has maintained that position ever since.

Prince William is known to have a loving bond with his granny, the Queen. And it’s been reported that the Queen has been taking time to offer the future king practical lessons here and there about how to be the British monarch. Prince William married Catherine Middleton in 2011. The couple has three children.

4. Prince Harry

Age: 38

Parents: Prince Charles of Wales and Diana, Princess of Wales

The second son of Princess Diana and Prince Charles was born on September 15, 1984. Prince Harry is the Queen’s third grandson and fourth grandchild overall. Harry always enjoyed a close relationship with his grandmother, the Queen. However, that relationship appears to have fractured by the events surrounding Harry’s “stepping down” as a senior member of the royal family in 2020.

Prince Harry was created Duke of Sussex on the occasion of his 2018 wedding to American actress Meghan Markle, now the Duchess of Sussex. The Duke and Duchess, who are no longer styled as HRH, have two children.

5. Princess Beatrice

Parents: Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York

On July 23, 1986, the Queen’s second son, Prince Andrew of York, married Lady Sarah Ferguson. Two years later, on August 8, 1988, the Queen’s second granddaughter, Princess Beatrice of York, was born. “Beatrice York,” as she is now known on LinkedIn, is said to have a close relationship with her grandmother, the Queen. Beatrice made the Queen a great-grandmother for the 9th time when she and her husband, property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi (whom she married in February 2020), welcomed their first child in 2021.

6 . Princess Eugenie

Age: 32

Parents: Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York

On March 23, 1990, Andrew and Sarah welcomed the second York child, Princess Eugenie. Although Eugenie has always been rumored to be the Queen’s favorite granddaughter, she may have since lost ground to her first cousin, Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor, the daughter of the Queen’s fourth son, Prince Edward. In 2018, Eugenie married Jack Brooksbank; the couple welcomed their first child in 2021.

7. Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor

Age: 19

Parents: Prince Edward and Countess Sophie of Wessex

Queen Elizabeth’s youngest child, Prince Edward, married Sophie Rhys-Jones in June 1999. At the time, Prince Edward was created an Earl by the Queen, and his wife was styled as Countess. Edward and Sophie’s first child, Louise, was born on November 8, 2003.

Although all royal family members have the surname “Mountbatten-Windsor,” Louise was the first to actually use it. And although Louise has the hereditary right to use the title “HRH Princess,” Edward and Sophie decided to style their daughter as “Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor,” with an option to become HRH Princess at age 18. Although Lady Louise turned 18 in 2021, she has not yet exercised that option.

Lady Louise enjoys a close relationship with the Queen. Some say that she may have become her granny’s current “favorite” since the two spent several weeks together at Balmoral during summer 2021.

8. James Mountbatten-Windsor, Viscount Severn

Age: 14

Parents: Prince Edward and Countess Sophie of Wessex

James Mountbatten-Windsor, born on December 17, 2007, is the second child of Edward and Sophie and the eighth and youngest grandchild of the Queen. Similar to Lady Louise, Viscount Severn has a hereditary right to the title of HRH Prince, but his parents have left it up to him to make that decision for himself once he reaches 18. Currently, 14, James, who stands 12th in line to the throne, is known for his unparalleled grill stylings while summering at Balmoral.

Age: 12

Parents: Autumn and Peter Phillips

The Queen’s first great-grandchild, Savannah Phillips, was born on December 29, 2010. Like her father, Savannah received no titles or royal stylings at birth. She may have the unofficial title of “royal cutup,” however, having distinguished herself as such on the Buckingham Palace balcony during 2018’s Trooping the Colour celebration. Savannah also made a notable appearance as a bridesmaid in the wedding of her first cousin once removed, Princess Eugenie, to Brooksbank later that same year.

10. Isla Phillips

Age: 10

Parents: Autumn and Peter Phillips

Born on March 29, 2012, Isla Phillips, the Queen’s second great-grandchild, is the second daughter of the Queen’s first grandson, Peter Phillips, and his former wife, Autumn. Like her sister Savannah, Isla has a way of attracting attention in the most adorable of ways during royal family photo opportunities. In addition, she’s been seen, from time to time, out and about doing the sort of things both her Aunt Zara and her great-grandmama, Elizabeth, enjoy, such as attending equestrian events.

11. Prince George

Age: 9

Parents: Prince William and Catherine Middleton

Prince William married his college girlfriend and commoner, Catherine Middleton, in April 2011, at which time the two were created the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge by the Queen. Two years later, on July 22, 2013, their first child, Prince George, was born. Although George is not yet ten and is the third great-grandchild of the Queen, only two people stand between George and the throne, his grandfather (Prince Charles) and his dad. That is not likely to change until the Queen dies, elevating Charles to king, and Wiliam to heir apparent.

12. Mia Tindall

Age: 8

Parents: Zara Phillips Tindall and Mike Tindall

Mia Tindall was born on January 17, 2014, to Zara Phillips Tindall, the second child of Princess Anne, Princess Royal, who, herself, is the second child of the Queen. The eight-year-old commoner stands at 22nd in line to the throne, right after her mom, Zara. Like Zara, Mia enjoys equestrian events, especially with her cousin Savannah Phillips.

13. Princess Charlotte

Age: 6

Parents: Prince William and Catherine Middleton

Born May 2, 2015. Princess Charlotte is the fifth great-grandchild of the Queen as well as the Queen’s fourth great-granddaughter. She is also the first female member of the royal family to have been born after the Queen’s ratification of the succession to the Crown Act. The Act ended the tradition of male primogeniture, by which the Queen, herself, would have lost her place in the order of succession if her parents had produced a subsequent male heir.

Thanks to the Act, Charlotte did not lose her place (fourth) in the order of succession when her baby brother, Prince Louis, was born.

14. Prince Louis

Age: 4

Parents: Prince William and Catherine Middleton

Prince Louis, born April 23, 2018, is the sixth great-grandchild of the Queen, the second great-grandson, and the fifth in line to the throne. His position stands to drop further when his older siblings, George and Charlotte, begin having children of their own.

15. Lena Tindall

Age: 4

Parents: Zara Phillips Tindall and Mike Tindall

On June 18, 2018, Zara Phillips Tindall gave birth to her second daughter, Lena, with her husband, Mike Tindall. Lena is the Queen’s seventh great-grandchild and fifth great-granddaughter. Like Mia, Lena is a kid who likes doing kid kinds of things, and while she is very much a part of the royal family, she is from a branch that seems to have little interest in being crowned monarch.

16. Archie Mountbatten-Windsor

Age: 3

Parents: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

Born May 6, 2019, Prince Harry’s first-born child, Archie, is the first great-grandchild of the Queen to use the surname “Mountbatten-Windsor.” The son of a grandchild of the Queen, Archie does not have the hereditary right to be styled as “HRH Prince,” as that right is exclusive to the sons of the British monarch’s male children. However, unlike his Cambridge cousins, George, Charlotte, and Louis, Archie was not created an HRH Prince at birth.

When his grandfather, Prince Charles, ascends the throne, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor will be the son of the king’s son, which by law entitles him to be styled as “HRH Prince” if he so chooses. In addition, he is eligible to inherit his father’s title as Duke of Sussex. Archie lives in the United States with his parents.

17. Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi

Age: 1

Parents: Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi

On September 18, 2021, Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi welcomed their first child, Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi. Sienna has no royal title, but she stands at 11th in the line of succession.

18. August Brooksbank

Age: 1

Parents: Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank

On February 9, 2021, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank welcomed their first child, a son named August Brooksbank. Though he has no royal title, August stands 13th in line for the throne.

19. Lucas Tindall

Age: 1

Parents: Zara Phillips Tindall and Mike Tindall

Born in March 2021, Lucas Tindall, the third child of Zara and Mike Tindall, currently stands at 24th in line to the throne.

20. Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor

Age: 10 months

Parents: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

Born on June 4, 2021, Lilibet (“Lili”) Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s second child, is named for her great grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, whose childhood nickname had been Lilibet. She is also named after her grandmother, Diana Princess of Wales. Although “Lili” has no royal title, she stands eighth in line to the throne. So far, she has not yet met her grandmother, the Queen.
