“Lilibet Diana” is the first of Queen Elizabeth’s great-grandchildren to be born outside Britain, and about 7 weeks have passed since her birth, but it was noted that the name “Lilibet” was absent from the list of succession or the line of the British throne, which raised great confusion and speculation about whether the palace He may exclude the daughter of the Duke of Sussex from the succession.
However, after a stir after controversy, the British royal palace added “Buckingham”, the daughter of Harry and Meghan, in the line of the throne on Monday.
According to the British newspaper, “The Observer”, the name “Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor” was added to the official sequence of succession, on the royal family’s website, to occupy the eighth place in the throne after her brother, “Archie”.
Despite the controversy and speculation that the name “Lilibet” was not added to the succession list immediately after her birth, it is not the first time that Buckingham Palace has waited for a few weeks before updating the list of succession, as it is reported that the same thing happened before the inclusion of “August”, the son of Princess Eugenie.
It is worth noting that the addition of “Lilibet” to the list affects the order of several members of the royal family to the throne, starting with Prince Andrew, Duke of York, who is currently ninth in line to the throne.
Prince Charles is the first in line to the throne, followed by Prince William, and Prince Harry moved from third to sixth in the throne after Kate Middleton gave birth to her three children, Princes “George” and “Louis” and Princess “Charlotte”.
Soon, Princess Beatrice’s child will be listed as 11th in succession, pushing Princess Eugenie to 12th place and her child 13th in line to the throne.
So far, members of the royal family in Britain have not been able to meet “Lilibet”, but the meeting may finally take place soon, as it is said that Prince Harry and Meghan want to baptize their child at St George’s Chapel in Windsor in the presence of Queen Elizabeth in an event that will be highlighted by the media. .
