These babies (some of whom aren’t quite babies anymore) are a little further away from the throne than Meghan and Harry’s baby, but they’re still in the royal family. Keep reading to find out all about these other royal babies.
Arthur Chatto Is The 24th In Line For The Throne
Arthur Chatto was born in 1999, so he’s 20 years old now. He’s the oldest “royal baby” on our list. This photo was taken a while ago, but if you want to see more recent photos of Arthur, you can check out his Instagram page. From what we can gather from his social media presence, this kid is living the good life.
He’s always traveling and hanging out with his friends. Arthur’s grandmother is Princess Margaret, who is Queen Elizabeth II’s sister.
Charles Armstrong-Jones Is The Queen’s First Paige Of Honor
Charles Armstrong-Jones was also born in 1999, and he is also Princess Margaret’s grandson. Charles is the son of David Armstrong-Jones, 2nd Earl of Snowdon and Serena Armstrong-Jones, Countess of Snowdon.
In 2012, his grand-aunt Queen Elizabeth II appointed him to be her First Page of Honour. Charles Armstrong-Jones is the heir apparent to the Earldom of Snowdon and 21st in line for the British throne, right after his father.

Margarita was born in 2002, and she is three years younger than her brother. She is 22nd in line to the British throne.

Savannah is 15th in line to the throne, right after her father who is 14th. Savannah was born on December 29, 2010, at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital. Queen Elizabeth attended Savannah’s baptism which happened at Holy Cross Church in Avening, Gloucestershire.
Isla Phillips Was A Bridesmaid At Meghan And Harry’s Wedding

Both Isla and Savannah were bridesmaids at Meghan and Harry’s royal wedding. Isla’s middle name is Elizabeth, which is probably a nod to Queen Elizabeth II.
Mia Grace Tindall Is A Big Sister Now
While Peter Philips was Princess Anne’s only son, Anne also had a daughter who she named Zara. Zara Philips married rugby player Mark Tindall in 2011 and they had their first child, Mia Grace Tindall, on January 17th, 2014.

Lady Louise Windsor Entered The World Quite Dramatically
Lady Louise Windsor is the youngest granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. She is twelfth in line for the British throne. Lady Louise’s parents are Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, and Sophie, Countess of Wessex. Prince Edward is Queen Elizabeth II’s youngest child.
Lady Louise’s birth was quite a dramatic affair. Prince Philip was out of the country when she was born in 2003 via emergency C-section due to placental abruption.
Estella Taylor Is 46th In Line To The Throne
This is Estella Olga Elizabeth Taylor. She was born on December 21st, 2004. Lady Helen, Estella’s mother, is currently 42nd in line to the British throne, which puts Estella somewhere around number 46.
Lady Helen is a great-granddaughter of King George V of the United Kingdom, so Estella is King George V’s great great granddaughter. Estella’s father, Timothy Taylor is an art dealer. In 1998, he contracted Hodgkin’s disease, which is likely why there’s such a big age gap between Estella and her brothers.

Just hours later, Prince Harry confirmed the news in a brief appearance, and Buckingham Palace made the official proclamation that Baby Sussex had arrived. Two days later it was revealed that they had named him Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, in an apparent departure from tradition.
Harry absolutely beamed as he addressed a crowd of reporters to announce that he and Meghan were the proud parents of a newborn son. “I’m very excited to announce that Meghan and myself had a baby boy early this morning, a very healthy boy,” he said while smiling.

Maud is the daughter of Lord Frederick Michael George David Louis Windsor and British actress Sophie Winkleman. Princess Eugenie is one of Maud’s godparents, so obviously, she got to be a bridesmaid at Eugenie’s wedding.

Are we seeing double? This photo looks almost exactly like the photo we just saw of Albert Windsor. This is Albert’s little brother, Leopold Ernest Augustus Guelph Windsor. He was born on September 8th, 2009. He is the second child of Lord Nicholas Charles Edward Jonathan Windsor and his wife, Paola Doimi de Lupis Frankopan Šubić Zrinski.

Richard was working as an architect when his older brother died and he was called upon to take over the position of Duke. His mother was the third daughter of the 7th Duke of Buccleuch, which makes this current duke a grandson of George V and Queen Elizabeth II’s first cousin.
Albert Windsor Is The Queen’s Cousin’s Son (At Least Once Removed)
Albert Louis Philip Edward Windsor was born on September 22nd, 2007 at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London. Obviously, this is an older picture of him. He’s around 12 years old now. Albert is the son of Lord Nicholas Charles Edward Jonathan Windsor, who is the youngest child of Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, and Katharine, Duchess of Kent.
This makes Lord Nicholas Queen Elizabeth II’s first cousin, once removed.
