SUMMARY

Queen Elizabeth II passed away at the age of 96 at Balmoral Castle, Scotland, on Thursday. With her death, her eldest son Charles, the Prince of Wales, has now become King Charles III. With his ascension to the throne, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, is now next in line to ascend the throne. The royal title in the United Kingdom passes down under the laws of absolute primogeniture, which were established in 2015 after the Succession to the Crown Act, 2013 was passed. Here’s a look at the order of succession for the UK’s throne as it stands right now.
