Prince Charles’ decision to have more children will not change the order of succession.

On the online forum site Quora, royal fans asked how Prince William and Prince Harry’s position in the line of succession would be affected if Prince Charles suddenly decides to have more children.

Royal fan Alan Martin said that Prince William and his three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, as well as Prince Harry, would get to keep their position because Prince Charles’ baby would only come after the Duke of Sussex.

With the arrival of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s firstborn, Prince Charles’ third child would move down from the order of succession.

Steven Brownfield, a researcher and writer, also said a similar thing. According to him, the crown would have to go through Prince William and his three children first then Prince Harry and all of his future kids.

“The succession is actually simpler than it seems upon first glance. It is based on primogeniture, the birth order… Therefore, the oldest child of the current monarch is the heir,” he said.

Terri Heard, a former assignment editor at TV Guide, also said that the succession follows the oldest child all the way through his or her descendants until there are no more descendants from the senior line.

She said that if Prince William’s children do not exist then the succession would go from Prince Charles and then Prince William to Prince Harry. If the latter also doesn’t have children, the succession is supposed to move to Princess Anne in light of the recent changes to the rules of succession.
