This is the new line of succession of the British crown

With the ascension to the throne of Carlos III after the death of Queen Elizabeth II last Thursday, Prince William, 40, has become the head of the line of succession to the Crown of the United Kingdom. After the eldest son of the newly proclaimed King, his children follow him in order of age: Prince George, nine years old, Princess Charlotte, seven, and Prince Louis, four.

The fifth member of the British royal family in the line of succession is William's brother, Prince Harry, 37, followed by his children, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, three years old, and Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, of 15 months.

In 2013, British legislation abolished the prominence given to the male line. Any member of the royal family born after October 28, 2011 would not be discriminated against due to her gender in an eventual succession. However, there is little chance that in the coming decades it will be a woman who will inherit the throne of England, since the first two places in the line of succession are men: the Prince of Wales and his eldest son, George.

The following are the first steps in the line of succession to the Crown of the United Kingdom:

1. Prince William, Duke of Cornwall and Cambridge

2. Prince George of Cornwall and Cambridge

3. Princess Charlotte of Cornwall and Cambridge

4. Prince Louis of Cornwall and Cambridge

5. Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex

6. Archie Mountbatten-Windsor

7. Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor

8. Prince Andrew, Duke of York

9. Princess Beatrice of York

10. Sienna Mapelli Mozzi

11. Princess Eugenie of York

12. August Brooksbank

13. Prince Edward, Earl of Essex

14. Jacobo Mountbatten-Windsor, Viscount Severn

15. Louisa Windsor

16. Princess Royal Anne

17. Peter Phillips

18. Savanna Phillips

19. Isla Phillips

20. Zara Tindall
