Every Royal Family Member, Explained in 3 Words

The royal family has experienced a lot of change over the past few years (you’ll be missed, Queen Elizabeth). Amid the funerals and cross-continent moves, it’s hard to keep track of where everyone stands in the British line of succession.

We could easily recommend watching one of the countless history documentaries or browsing the thousands of Wiki pages on King Charles to stay up to date. Instead, we explained every royal family member in just three words. (Because why not?) From Prince William to Princess Eugenie, keep scrolling for a brief introduction.
