It's little wonder that it's difficult to keep track of who's who – Her Majesty welcomed four children, who have each gone on to have their own brood, who in turn now have families of their own. Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana welcomed Princes William and Harry, the latter of whom welcomed his second child, Lilibet Diana, in June 2021.

The Duke is a qualified pilot and in 2015 he took on a full-time role as a pilot with the East Anglian Air Ambulance until July 2017.

Prince Henry of Wales (Henry Charles Albert David)

Prince Harry was born on 15 September 1984 and is sixth in line to the throne. Like his brother, Harry chose a career in the military but left the army in 2015 to become a full-time royal.

In 2018 he married former actress Meghan Markle and the couple welcomed son Archie the following year. In January 2020, the couple announced they were "stepping back" as senior members of the royal family and now live in LA with their two children.

Zara Tindall

The daughter of Princess Anne and her first husband Captain Mark Phillips was born on 15 May 1981 and is currently 21st in line to the throne.

Princess Eugenie of York (Eugenie Victoria Helena)

The youngest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York was born on 23 March 1990 and is 12th in line to the throne. Eugenie studied art, history, English literature, and politics at Newcastle University.

Lady Louise Alice Elizabeth Mary Mountbatten-Windsor

The eldest child and only daughter of Prince Edward and Sophie Wessex, Lady Louise was born on 8 November 2008 and is 16th in line to the throne. Louise was also a bridesmaid at the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding in 2009.

James, Viscount Severn

The youngest child and only son of the Earl and Countess of Wessex, James was born on 17 December 2007 and is 15th in line to the throne. James is said to be very close to the Queen and enjoys horse riding.

Who are the Queen's great-grandchildren?

Prince George of Cambridge (George Alexander Louis)

The eldest child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge was born on 22 July 2013 and is third in line to the throne. In 2016, George started nursery and a year earlier he was ranked 49th on GQ's 50 Best Dressed Men in Britain list. In September 2017 he started school at St Thomas' Battersea in London.

Princess Charlotte of Cambridge (Charlotte Elizabeth Diana)

The second child and only daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Charlotte was born on 2 May 2015 and is fourth in line to the throne. Because of the changes to succession law in 2013, Charlotte was not displaced in the line of succession when her younger brother Prince Louis was born on 23 April 2018.

Prince Louis of Cambridge (Louis Arthur Charles)

Prince William and Kate's third child, Prince Louis, was born at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington on St. George's Day, 23 April 2018. He is currently fifth in line to the throne.

The official statement read: "Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 1101hrs. The baby weighs 8lbs 7oz. The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well."

Lucas Philip Tindall

Zara and Mike Tindall welcomed their third child, and only son, Lucas Philip, on 21 March 2021. Lucas' arrival was quite a dramatic one as Zara gave birth on the bathroom floor in her Gatcombe Park home as there wasn't enough time to get to the hospital. He is 24th in line to the throne.

Interestingly, this was the first royal home birth since the Queen's late sister, Princess Margaret, welcomed her daughter, Lady Sarah, at home in Kensington Palace in 1964.

Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi

Princess Beatrice gave birth to her first child with husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi on 18 September 2021 at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London. Sienna Elizabeth – whose big brother Christopher Woolf is Edoardo's son from a previous relationship – became the Queen's 12th great-grandchild and is 11th in line to the throne.

The couple have yet to publicly share a photo of their daughter.

August Philip Hawke Brooksbank

Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank welcomed their first child, August Philip, on Tuesday 9 February 2021. The palace announced the news in a statement, with Eugenie later introducing her little boy on Instagram. He is 13th in line to the throne.

The couple chose the name August after Queen Victoria's consort Prince Albert, who had Augustus as a middle name. Philip is in honour of Eugenie's late grandfather the Duke of Edinburgh.

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor

Archie Harrison is the son of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. He was born on 6 May 2019 at The Portland Hospital in London, the same place where Sarah, Duchess of York gave birth to Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.

While the former actress had reportedly planned a home birth at Frogmore Cottage, the Daily Mail later reported that the couple were whisked to the hospital on Sunday 5 May by their Scotland Yard security team. Sources confirmed that the Duke and Duchess stayed overnight until their son was born at 5:26am on Monday morning.

Archie now lives with his parents and baby sister in Santa Barbara, California. He is seventh in line to the throne.

Lilibet 'Lili' Diana Mountbatten-Windsor

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their second child, daughter Lilibet Diana on 4 June 2021. Lili is named after her great-grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, whose family nickname is Lilibet.

Her middle name, Diana, was chosen to honour her beloved late grandmother, The Princess of Wales. The tot became the Queen's 11th great-grandchild and is the fifth grandchild of the Prince of Wales. She is eighth in line to the throne.
