Who are the Queen’s great grandchildren?

The Queen will have 10 great grandchildren once Meghan and Harry give birth to their second child.

Savannah Philips

The first of the Queen’s great grandchildren is Savannah Phillips, who is now 10 and was born to Peter Phillips and Autumn Kelly.

Peter is Mark Phillips and Princess Anne’s son.

Isla Philips

The second is eight-year-old Isla Philips, Savannah’s sister.

Her full name is Savannah Anne Kathleen Phillips.

Despite being included in the order of succession, Savannah does not hold a royal title.

This is all because Princess Anne and her husband Captain Mark Phillips rejected the Queen’s offer of a royal title for their son Peter when he was born in 1977.

What is the age difference between the royal cousins?

Prince Louis could be in the same school year as Lena Elizabeth, with them being born less than three months apart.

And the age difference between the majority of the great-grandchildren is fairly slim, with only eight years separating the eldest with Zara’s youngest daughter.

That means there are nine years between Savannah and Meghan and Harry’s little one.

The Queen’s children had a 16-year gap between the eldest and the youngest, with Prince Charles born in 1948 and Prince Edward born in 1964.

The Cambridges have a cousin on Kate Middleton’s side.

Kate’s sister, Pippa, had her first child with husband James Matthews.

Baby Arthur was born in October 2018.

When was the royal baby be introduced to the world?

Meghan and Harry beamed on May 8 as they introduced their “amazing” baby boy to the world – and revealed his name as Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor

The new parents appeared tired but ecstatic as they cradled the newborn, with giddy bearded dad Harry joking his son “already has facial hair”.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s low key announcement at Windsor Castle is in stark contrast to Kate Middleton and Prince William’s baby reveals that saw hundreds of photographers snap pictures of their three children hours after they were born.

Where the baby boy was born will be revealed in the birth certificate – which must be completed within 42 days of the birth.

New mum Meghan, 37, stunned in a white dress that bared her arms as she stood by grinning new dad Prince Harry, 34, who cradled their little boy.

She gushed over life after welcoming her little boy, saying: “It’s magic.

“It’s pretty amazing. I have the best two guys in the world, so I’m really happy.”

And she said the baby boy, who is just two days old, already had the “sweetest temperament” – adding “he’s the dream”.
