Queen Elizabeth may be a mother of four, but an explosive new documentary claims that the head of the royal family actually has a favorite child—and it isn’t her heir, Prince Charles.

According to the documentary “Paxman on the Queen’s Children,” Queen Elizabeth II favors her second son, Prince Andrew, over his older siblings, Prince Charles and Princess Margaret and younger brother, Prince Edward.

In the documentary, journalist and broadcasted Jeremy Paxman states that because Andrew was an “action man” who went straight into the naval forces when he was old enough, he won over favor with both of his parents.

“Andy skipped university and went straight to naval college, which went down well with his naval officer father. He completed the Marines Commando course, just to show he could, before qualifying as a helicopter pilot. Then, aged 22, he fought in the Falklands,” he said.

Historian Piers Brendon, who was also featured in the documentary echoed the sentiment, stating that his dedication wound up winning over his mother.

“Prince Andrew is obviously the Queen’s favorite son. He was heroic during the Falklands War—she clearly has a soft spot for him,” he said.

However, even if the claim is true and Queen Elizabeth does favor her son over her other kids, it doesn’t change anything when it comes to who will take the throne and rule following her death. Due to royal protocol, that role will only go to Prince Charles, unless he died prior to her or chooses to abdicate. In that case, the throne then passes to his own son, Prince William.

Prince Andrew is actually 7th in line for the throne, beneath Charles’ second son, Prince Harry. However, it is expected that his first child with Meghan Markle, die this spring, will take that spot after birth, knocking the alleged “favorite” son down to eighth place in the line of succession.
