Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. My name is George Alexander Louis. My dad is Prince William and my mum is Duchess of Cambridge Catherine (nee Kate Middleton). Was I grandmama's (Queen Elizabeth II) first great-grandchild?

Answer: No, Princess Anne has two older grandchildren

George's grandfather, Prince Charles (b. 1948) has a sister Anne (b. 1950) who has two children, Peter (b. 1977) and Zara (b. 1981). Peter has two children Savannah (b. 2010) and Isla (b. 2012). Therefore Prince George is Queen Elizabeth's third oldest great-grandchild. Princess Eugenie (b. 1990) and Lady Louise (Prince Edward's daughter, b. 2004) are Queen Elizabeth's grand-daughters.
2. On the day I was born, July 22, 2013, I became the third in line to the throne. Who was third in line the day before?

Answer: Prince Henry (Harry)

On 21 July, 2013, Queen Elizabeth II (b. 1926) was the reigning monarch. Her eldest son, Prince Charles (b. 1948), was next in line to the throne and Charles' elder son Prince William (b. 1982) was second in line. Prince William's brother Prince Harry was third in line.

The next day, Prince George, when he was born displaced Prince Harry (born 1984) and a new born baby became third in line for the throne.
3. My dad, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, is one of eight royal cousins. Is he the eldest?

Answer: No, Peter Phillips is the oldest cousin

Princess Anne has a boy and a girl: Peter (b. 1977) and Zara (b.1981).
Prince Charles has two boys: Prince William (b. 1982) and Prince Harry (b. 1984).
Prince Andrew has two daughters: Beatrice (b. 1988) and Eugenie (b. 1990)
Prince Edward has a girl and a boy: Lady Louise (b. 2003) and James, Viscount Severn. (b. 2007).
Therefore, Prince William is the third oldest of the royal cousins.
4. My granddad is Charles, Prince of Wales, heir to the throne. He is one of four siblings. Only one has NOT been divorced. Which?

Answer: Prince Edward, the Earl of Wessex

Princess Anne and Mark Phillips were divorced in 1992. Price Charles and Princess Diana were divorced in 1996, as were Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York. Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex and Sophie Rhys-Jones were married in June 1999 and were still married at the time of Prince George's birth in 2013. Mark Phillips refused a peerage when he married Princess Anne. Anne asked the Queen not to bestow titles on her children, and as a result Peter and Zara Philips are commoners.
5. On the day I was born all my great-grandmother's (Queen Elizabeth II) siblings had died. Is this true?

Answer: Yes, the Queen's younger sister, Margaret died in 2002

Princess Margaret was seen as a controversial royal family member. In 1953, when she was 22 she told the new Queen that she wanted to marry Group Captain Peter Townsend, their father's equerry. He was 16 years older and divorced. As she was under 25 she needed the Queen's permission to marry. According to the Princess's obituary published in "The Guardian" in 2002, Queen Elizabeth told her to wait a year.

When she turned 25 she met Townsend again but was told by Prime Minister Eden that parliament would not approve the marriage.

She had two options: To renounce her royal privileges and marry Peter Townsend or give up on the marriage. She announced the latter on BBC Radio on 31st October, 1955. She married a commoner, Antony Armstrong-Jones in 1960 and they became the Earl and Countess of Snowdon.

They had two children, David (b. 1961) and Sarah (b. 1964) but divorced in 1978. Princess Margaret had poor health later in life and died after her third stroke in 2002.
6. Queen Elizabeth II's father was King George VI. Yet he had an older brother who outlived my great-great-grandfather by 20 years. Why wasn't he the king?

Answer: He was, but he abdicated

King Edward VIII was king for 326 days but he was never crowned. He proposed marriage to twice-married American divorcee Wallis Simpson. Eventually knowing that such a marriage would not be accepted by the British government, he abdicated, causing his bother Albert to become king. Albert took the regnal name George VI and reigned from 1936-1952.
7. King George VI's father was King George V. Was George V the oldest child of Edward VII?

Answer: No. He had an older brother Albert

King Edward VII (1841-1910) reigned from 1901-1910 and had six children: Albert (1864-1892), George (1865-1936), Louise (1867-1931), Victoria (1868-1935), Maud (1869-1938 )and Alexander (1871-1871). As Albert died in 1892, 18 years before his father, George was next in line for the throne, which became his when his father died in 1910. He reigned for 26 years.
8. King Edward VII (1841-1910) was Queen Victoria's only son.

Answer: False

Queen Victoria had nine children. Edward (1841-1910) was the oldest son but he had an older sister Victoria (1840-1901). All nine children reached adulthood (rare in this era) though Leopold (the second youngest) died at 31 and Alice, the third oldest died at 35. King Edward VII reigned for nine years, 1901-1910. Queen Victoria reigned from 1837-1901.
9. If I, Prince George was born a girl, at the time I was born in July 2013, would I still have been third in line to the throne?

Answer: Yes

It does not matter what sex, Prince William's first child is. The fact is they are an ONLY child and therefore remain third in line. Up until 2011, the only thing that would change this is if the first born was a girl AND had a subsequent brother. Then the brother would be third in line. BUT... In 2011, the heads of government of all 16 Commonwealth realms agreed to adopt what is known as absolute primogeniture.

This, in its simplest form stipulates that the throne, upon the demise of the monarch will pass to the monarch's oldest surviving child regardless of gender.

This form of primogeniture is a recent development in European monarchies, never being practised before 1980. Because of the 2011 change, if I was Georgina Alexandra Louise and I had a younger brother, I would still be third in line to the throne.
10. When I was born, there had been six kings called George, the last being my great-great-grandfather King George VI. What will be my "designation" when I become King?

Answer: It will not be certain until I become King

While there have been six King Georges before me, I might not necessarily be King George VII. Prince Charles and/or Prince William may take the regnal name of King George, and therefore it is possible I may be King George IX! One cannot be clear what name a king will take until he has succeeded the previous monarch.
