This might not be the case of course...a lot depends on the Queen's health.

She has made it clear many times that she will reign until her death...if she lives to the same age as her mother that is still a long time.

Charles of course is already an old man.......if he should sucumbe before the  Queen then the line of succession will pass to Andrew...and then his children.

Just a thought.




Errr no.

The succession is ordered by male-preference (cognatic) primogeniture. A person is always immediately followed in the succession by his or her own legitimate descendants (his or her line) except for any legitimate descendants who already appear higher in the line of succession. A person's sons and their lines all come before a person's daughters and their lines. Older sons and their lines come before younger sons and their lines. Older daughters and their lines come before younger daughters and their lines,

So, Charles' line (William (then possible children) then Harry (then possible children)) come before Andrew. Once someone is in the direct line of succession, the only way they can not become king/queen is by dying (or abdication).

Sorry, I'm a born pedant. You have no idea how much my wife suffers from my pedantry.
