Most of the first generation of illegitimate children on this table are all legitimatio per matrimonium subsequens or legitimated by subsequent marriage. Under British law, they and their descendants are forever excluded from the line of succession. In some cases they are also excluded from other titles. Other monarchies are different. Monaco, for instance recognises children so legitimated as eligible for the throne. Suspected illegitimate children not openly acknowledged by members of the family are not included in the table.

The Catholics are from three families.

  • Prince Michael married his Catholic wife in 1978, but his children were raised in communion with the Anglican church and are still eligible.
  • The Duke of Kent's (#24) wife converted to Catholicism decades after they were married. Her later conversion does not exclude him. However his two sons have converted to Catholicism.
  • The oldest son, George Windsor, has 3 children. Only Lady Amelia Windsor (#25) is still in the line, but it is presumed that she will follow the lead of her siblings and parents and be confirmed [in the Catholic faith] when she is older and hence will be excluded from succession.
  • The second son, Lord Nicholas Windsor, married his wife in the Vatican, and his two children are baptised at a few weeks old. Upon baptism they are excluded from the line of succession.

Descendants of Edward VII[edit]

The House of Windsor was created from the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (a minor branch of the House of Wettin). Officially, Edward VII was the only British monarch to rule as a member of this house. George V is considered to be a member of the House of Windsor. The 7 living descendants of Lady Maud Duff are considered part of the extended British Royal family.
