A lot has changed in the royal family in the past few years, but most notably, this week, the Queen’s husband, Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, has died at the age of 99.

Though his death does not change the order of who is in line to the throne, we couldn’t help but take a look at the updated family tree, as it has had some recent additions.

So, what does the royal family tree look like now?

We dug in, did some research and laid out exactly who is heir to the throne, and where they fall in the line of succession.
