It’s an intriguing time for the Royal Family right now, with Harry and Meghan’s exit undoubtedly causing a stir within Buckingham Palace and the release of the fourth season of The Crown on Netflix.
Questions have, therefore, been asked on who will become the next reigning monarch. Current incumbent Elizabeth II ascended the throne at the age of 25 upon the death of her father, George VI. And it’s now been 68 years on the throne, having been proclaimed queen on February 6 1952.
A ceremony was held earlier this month to mark the occasion, with Elizabeth marking the anniversary privately at Sandringham in Norfolk. Gun salutes at landmarks such as Edinburgh Castle, Cardiff Castle and the Tower of London took place to note the event.

Elizabeth II is now entering the 69th year of her reign, and became the youngest monarch in British history upon her ascension. She overtook her great, great grandmother Queen Victoria in the process. Elizabeth is also the only monarch to celebrate a Sapphire Jubilee.
The 93-year-old celebrated that in 2017, while also marking her Platinum wedding anniversary with Prince Philip in the same year.
The pair married in 1947, and have four children Charles, Prince of Wales; Anne, Princess Royal; Prince Andrew, Duke of York, and Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex.
Born in London on April 21, 1926, she began undertaking duties during the Second World War, before receiving private education at home.
But who will take over from her reign when it finishes?
As the eldest son of Elizabeth II, Prince Charles is unsurprisingly favourite to take over the crown when it becomes available. The Prince of Wales is the longest-serving heir apparent in British history.
He has been Duke of Cornwall and Duke of Rothesay since 1952. And he’s currently 2/7 to be next in line for the throne.
Will Camilla be Queen?
Prince William, meanwhile, is second in line of succession to the British throne. The elder son of Charles and Princess Diana is currently the Duke of Cambridge.
Prince William is currently 5/2 to be the next reigning monarch.
Why Prince Charles will not be the next king
And finally his first son Prince George of Cambridge is third in line of succession. George is currently 33/1 to be the next British monarch.
There are also several others who may have to wait their turn if they are to ever ascend the throne. They include Prince Charlotte, who is fourth in line, and Prince Louis, who is fifth in line.
Sixth in line is Prince Harry, with his son Archie seventh in the line of succession to the British throne.
