With the arrival of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s first child, CTVNews.ca offers an updated Royal Family tree and the line of succession to the Crown.
The line of succession is the order in which members of the royal family would come to the throne — if the reigning king or queen died or abdicated.
Charles, Prince of Wales is first in line, followed by Prince William and then Prince William's son, George.
Traditionally, males came before females in the line of succession. But in March 2015, the law changed so that for children born after October 28, 2011, the succession is decided by age instead of gender.
