Infographic: Where the royal baby fits into the line of succession Add to ...

Prince William’s and Kate’s baby boy represents a living link to Britain’s imperial history – the infant is the great-great-great-great-great-grandchild of Queen Victoria, who ruled at the peak of British power – and is now third in line to the throne. The graphic shows the Royal House of Windsor, and where people place in the succession. (Editor's note: An earlier version of this graphic omitted Savannah and Isla Phillips and misstated Zara Phillips' position in the line of succession as No. 13. This version has been updated.)
