The Queen’s granddaughters Princess Eugenie and Zara Tindall each welcomed a son earlier in 2021. Two more royal babies are expected later this year, meaning there will be some more major changes to the line of succession to the throne.

August Philip Hawke Brooksbank

Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank welcomed their first child, August Philip Hawke Brooksbank, earlier this year.

Eugenie and Jack welcomed August at the Portland hospital in London on February 9, 2021.

Announcing their son’s name with a family picture of the trio, Princess Eugenie wrote on Instagram: “We wanted to introduce you to August Philip Hawke Brooksbank.

“Thank you for so many wonderful messages. Our hearts are full of love for this little human, words can’t express.”

Princess Eugenie is currently 10th in line to the throne as the youngest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson.

This means baby August is 11th in line to the throne presently.

However, Princess Eugenie’s older sister Princess Beatrice is ninth in line to the throne.

So when Beatrice welcomes her bundle of joy later this year, both Eugenie and August will drop a place in the line of succession.

Lucas Tindall

Princess Anne’s daughter Zara Tindall welcomed her third child with rugby player Mike Tindall earlier this year.

The couple’s first son, Lucas Philip Tindall, was born at the Tindall’s residence on March 21, 2021.

Zara is 19th in line to the throne, so her eldest child Mia Tindall is 20th in line to the throne.

The Tindall’s second child is Lena Tindall and she is subsequently 21st in line to throne, meaning baby Lucas is 22nd in line to the throne presently.

Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex’s baby

Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex are expecting their second child later this year.

The couple confirmed in their interview with TV host Oprah Winfrey in March that they are expecting a baby girl.

Prince Harry is sixth in line to the throne, as he is the youngest son of Prince Charles.

Therefore Harry and Meghan’s first child, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, is seventh in line to the throne.

The Sussex’s daughter will therefore be eighth in line to the throne when she arrives.

Prince Harry is higher in the line of succession than Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie and Zara Tindall.

So the arrival of his daughter will mean his cousins and their children all drop a place in the line of succession.

Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi’s baby

Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are expecting their first child later this year.

A statement from Buckingham Palace read: “Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are very pleased to announce that they are expecting a baby in autumn of this year.

“The Queen has been informed and both families are delighted with the news.”

Harry and Meghan have not announced when their baby girl is due.

But if Beatrice’s baby is born after Harry and Meghan’s daughter, her baby will be 11th in line to the throne.
