Baby Sussex Is Here! Here's Where Meghan and Harry's Son Is in Line For the Throne
When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle first announced that they were expecting their first child back in October, we all collectively lost our minds. And now after months of waiting, baby Sussex is finally here!
On May 6, Harry and Meghan welcomed their first child, a baby boy, at 5:26 a.m. "I'm very excited to announce that Meghan and myself had a bay boy early this morning — a very healthy boy. Mother and baby are doing incredibly well," Harry told press outside of Windsor Castle. "It's been the most amazing experience I could ever possibly imagine.
Now that Meghan and Harry are officially parents, we can't help but wonder: where is the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's baby in line for the throne?
Well, since Harry is currently sixth in line of succession, that means the baby is now seventh. That also means that Prince Andrew, the son of Queen Elizabeth II, has been knocked to eighth. But if Prince Harry and Meghan decide to have another baby, then that child will take the eighth spot, and Prince Andrew will be in ninth. The first in line of succession is Prince Charles, and his eldest son, Prince William, is second. Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis are third, fourth, and fifth in line, respectively. Don't worry if this all seems like a lot to process. We have the line of succession all laid out for you here.
