Perhaps the British Royal Family was hoping that no one would notice? Even though she was born a little over seven weeks ago, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s daughter Lilibet Diana has just now been added to the Line of Succession.
The newborn tot has taken her place right after her big brother Archie, which moves her great uncle Prince Andrew down to ninth. Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor was born on June 4th is now eighth in line to the royal throne. Here’s what you need to know.
Even though Lilibet was born in early June, the Royal Family’s web site has just now updated their Line of Succession to add Harry and Meghan’s daughter. Lilibet was added to the royal family’s website in the section that explains the rules of the line of succession and details the first 23 in-line.
Prince Harry And Meghan Markle’s Daughter Lilibet Added To The Line of Succession
As many royal fans know, the basis for the line of succession was determined hundreds of years ago, but a significant change was made in 2013 which gave females equal rights to males to the throne.
Strangely enough though, it was The Daily Mail that first flagged the omission and reported for comparison that Archie, Meghan and Harry‘s firstborn, was added to the list two weeks after he was born in 2019.
When Prince William and Kate Middleton’s third child, Louis, was born, his name was added to the list after 12 days. When royals Zara and Mike Tindall’s son Lucas was born in March of this year, the baby’s name was added right away, according to the outlet.
The revelation comes after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle managed to spark tension with the rest of the royal family with their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey back in March.
