The European monarchy has led for endless generations and has been a fixation to the public all over the world. The British royal family is led by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

The world looks to the royal family for tradition and structure and each member has gained a certain amount of celebrity. The family may be elite but they are all stuck with the same familial issues that the rest of the world has.

Who will rule next?

When Her Majesty succeeds from her duties, the following family members are next in line to take over:

  1. Prince Charles, Prince of Wales
  2. Prince William, Duke of Cambridge
  3. Prince George of Cambridge
  4. Princess Charlotte of Cambridge
  5. Prince Louis of Cambridge
  6. Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex
  7. Master Archie Mountbatten-Windsor

Royal Drama

The royal family has had an intense history of drama and controversy along with their great ability to lead. There has always been tabloid fodder: From Prince Charles' sordid affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles to Sarah Ferguson being caught taking bribes for access to the royal family.

At the moment, the biggest interest in the royal family is the dynamic between the royals and the Sussexes. Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle stepped down as senior royals after the incredible amount of abuse they took from the public, the lack of emotional support and racist targeting from the "firm" they received. 

We will have to say if the relationships will be able to mend. Many are hopeful as there has been a massive royal baby boom and the commonwealth are excited to watch them grow up together.
