How Does Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Baby Boy Impact the Line to the Throne?

On, May 6, 2019, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, announced the birth of their first child, a baby boy, weighing 7 pounds, 3 oz. While details of the child's name are currently under wraps, we do know where the youngest member of the royal family sits in the pecking order for the throne.

Regardless of whether the baby is a boy or a girl, Prince Harry's child will be seventh in line to the throne, behind his or her father, and will remain ahead of any other children Harry and Meghan have in the future, again regardless of gender. He or she will also bump Prince Andrew (and everyone else) down a position. Read on for the full order of succession from Prince Charles to the Earl of Ulster.
