LONDON — As Britain reels from the loss of Queen Elizabeth II, Britain’s longest-serving monarch, here’s a look at the next 10 royals who are next in line to the throne.

Charles ascended the throne the moment his mother passed away in Balmoral, Scotland, on Thursday evening local time. Here’s what to know about the new line of succession, half of them children.

1. Prince William

As the elder son of Prince Charles and Diana, the 40-year-old is now heir to the British throne.

2. Prince George of Cambridge

William’s eldest child, 9, follows his father in the line of succession. Prince George was born to much fanfare on July 22, 2013, as reporters and pundits waited outside London’s St. Mary’s Hospital to catch a glimpse of the royal couple’s firstborn child and heir.

3. Princess Charlotte of Cambridge

George’s sister — William’s 7-year-old daughter — comes next.

4. Prince Louis of Cambridge

The third child of William and Catherine is now fourth in line to the throne. Four-year-old Louis captured hearts and international headlines after his emotional display on the balcony of Buckingham Palace amid the pomp of the queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June.

5. Prince Harry

William’s brother, Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, 37, is now fifth in line to the British throne. Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, bought a $14.7 million home in California after “stepping back” from the royal family and surrendering their “royal highness” titles.

6. Archie Mountbatten-Windsor

Harry’s children with wife Meghan come next. Archie, their firstborn, is 3.

Among the many jaw-dropping revelations the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made in an interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year was the claim that Buckingham Palace refused Archie the title of prince — a decision that Meghan called hurtful and suggested was driven by institutional racism within the monarchy.

7. Lilibet-Diana Mountbatten-Windsor

Harry and Meghan’s daughter, age 1, follows her brother, Archie. The queen reportedly met her great-granddaughter Lilibet — who is named after her and after Harry’s late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales — for the first time at the Platinum Jubilee.

8. Andrew, Duke of York

Charles’s first brother — second son of Elizabeth and Philip — is now eighth in line to the throne. Andrew, 62, in February settled a lawsuit with an American, Virginia Giuffre, who said she was forced to have sexual encounters with him when she was a teenager after being trafficked by U.S. financier Jeffrey Epstein.

While Andrew has been stripped of his royal highness title and honorary patronages, he remains in the line of succession.

York strips a title from Prince Andrew. But it’s hard to take ‘Duke of York.’

9. Princess Beatrice

Beatrice, 34, who also goes by Mrs. Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, is the elder daughter of Prince Andrew and ex-wife Sarah.

10. Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi

Beatrice’s daughter, Sienna, who is nearly a year old, is now 10th in line to the British throne.
