List of members of the House of Windsor

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The House of Windsor, the royal house of the Commonwealth realms, includes the male-line descendants of Queen Victoria who are subjects of the Crown (1917 Order-in-Council)[1] and the male-line descendants of Elizabeth II (1952 Order-in-Council).[2] According to these two Orders-in-Council, male-line female descendants lose the name Windsor upon marriage.

The line of Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught, the third son of Queen Victoria, died out in 1974, with the death of Lady Patricia Ramsay, formally Princess Patricia of Connaught.

The line of Prince Leopold, Duke of Albany, the youngest son of Queen Victoria, were not considered members of the House of Windsor, as they had fought on the German side during World War I as Dukes of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (except for the Duke's daughter, Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone, who was considered a member of the House of Windsor as she remained in the United Kingdom).

Three of the current members of the house of Windsor are Roman Catholic (labelled "CA" in the table), and are thus excluded from the line of succession to the British throne. The remaining 30 (including the Queen) are in the line of succession, though not consecutively. Four of those 30 were previously excluded from the line of succession due to having married Catholics, but they were restored in 2015 when the Succession to the Crown Act 2013 came into effect.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Princess Anne is not 5th in line, as could be expected by her birth order, but 12th. This is a result of the rule of male-preference primogeniture under the law of the Succession to the British throne prior to 2015.
