MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry will be welcoming a second child to to the world this year, adding to the growing number of the Queen’s great grandchildren.
But how many cousins will Baby Sussex have? Here’s all you need to know.
Who are the Queen’s great grandchildren?
The Queen will have 10 great grandchildren once Meghan and Harry give birth to their second child.
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.
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.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed their first son, Prince George, who is now seven.
He is third in line to the throne.
Then came Mia Tindall, who is the seven-year-old daughter of Zara Phillips, Princess Anne’s daughter, and Mike Tindall.
Kate and William had their second child, Princess Charlotte in 2015.
She is now five.
Then in 2018, the couple had Prince Louis, who is now two.
He made history as the heaviest heir to the throne in a century, weighing 8lb 7oz when he was born on April 23, 2018.
Great grandchild number seven is Lena Tindall, who is also two.
Like her mum, she won’t have a royal title.
Zara’s previous pregnancy announcement with with Lena came just a year after tragically losing a child in December 2016 to a miscarriage.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had their first baby Archie in May 2019 and are now expecting their second.
Baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born on May 6, 2019 – meaning he is 18 months old.
He was christened exactly two months later.
The release of the official birth certificate revealed that the young royal was born at Portland Hospital in London at 5.26am.
Number nine is Princess Eugenie and Jack brooksbank’s baby, who’s name has not been revealed yet.
Princess Eugenie welcomed her first child into the world on February 9.
Meghan and Harry’s new little one will be the 10th great grandchild.
How many grandchildren are there?
Prince Charles, was the Queen’s first child and the heir appearent to the British throne.
He and Princess Diana got a divorce before her tragic death in 1997. He went on to marry Camilla Parker Bowles in 2005.
Princess Anne had Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips with Mark Phillips.
She is 15th in line to the throne and was the first royal to compete in the Olympics after she qualified for the equestrian three-day event in the 1976 Montreal games.
Prince Andrew had Princess Beatrice of York and Princess Eugenie of York with Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York.
Prince Edward had Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn, with Sophie, Countess of Wessex.
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.
Baby Arthur was born in October 2018.
