Following her death on 8 September, Queen Elizabeth II’s eldest son has taken over the monarchy and the title of King Charles III.

With a family tree as large as the royal family’s, it can be difficult to keep track of who is who, and who has what title.

This is everything you need to know about the children that Queen Elizabeth II had with Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, who died in April last year.

King Charles III

The Queen’s eldest son is the new King Charles III, who was born on 14 November 1948.

The 73 year old acceded to the throne on 8 September 2022 after his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, passed away. He was the longest serving heir apparent in British history and is the oldest person to assume the throne.
