Maintaining the family unit was perhaps the most difficult task for Queen Elizabeth II, realizing the leading role of the House of Windsor in the lives of millions of subjects and admirers who absorbed all the news generated around her. Your direct descendants have the duty to preserve your inheritance.
Carlos, the heir to Queen Elizabeth II
On November 14, 1948, Queen Elizabeth II became a mother for the first time. His son Charles is the new king of England.
Charles, Prince of Wales. The eldest of his children, he was born on 14 November 1948 and, until his mother’s death, was first in line to the British throne, aged 73, the oldest in the monarchy’s history. He stood out for his involvement in charitable causes, especially those related to the environment. After his divorce from Lady Diana Spencer, a marriage that gave him his children, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and his brother Harry, Duke of Sussex, he remarried the love of his life, as his relationship with Camilla Parker is called , now Duchess of Cornwall. His pedigree was extended with the birth of 5 grandchildren, three from his eldest son, George, Charlotte and Louis, and 2 from Enrique, Archie and Lilibeth Diana.
Anne the Rebel
Anna, the couple’s only daughter, was born on August 15, 1950. In addition to her royal engagements, she is known for her equestrian talent, being the first member of the British royal family to compete in the Olympics. Her sporting career included medals at the European Equestrian Championships in 1971 and 1975. On a personal note, she was the first of the Queen’s children, marrying on 14 November 1973 Captain Mark Phillips. Their marriage took place in Westminster Abbey. Because of his reserved nature, Phillips declined a peerage, which meant that his children Peter and Zara did not bear a royal title and were not officially part of the House of Windsor, despite being grandchildren of the monarch. Peter, in a failed marriage, is the father of Savannah Ann Kathleen and Isla Elizabeth; while her sister Zara is the mother of Mia Grace, Lena Elizabeth and Lucas Philip. Princess Anne married for the second time on 12 December 1992 to Commander Timothy Lawrence.
Andres, Duke of York, was born on February 19, 1960 and was the first child Queen Elizabeth II had since her coronation, which is said to have been a favorite because the monarch was able to spend more time with the little one. He was part of the British Royal Navy and distinguished himself as a helicopter pilot on the aircraft carrier HMS Invincible, taking part in battles in the Falklands War. The current scandal of alleged sexual abuse of a minor has estranged him from his mother and, among other things, he has lost privileges as he has been stripped of all his military titles as well as royal and honorary patronages. He married Sarah Ferguson on 23 July 1986, becoming the Duke of York. This relationship, which ended in 1996, left two daughters: Princess Beatrice of York and Princess Eugenie of York, who in turn are the mothers of Sienna Mapelli Mozzi and August Brooksbank.
Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex. The youngest of Queen Elizabeth II’s children was born on March 10, 1964. When his father retired from public life, Eduardo took over some of his functions, as president of the Commonwealth Games Federation and representative of the Crown to the Duke of Ceremonies at the awards ceremony in Edinburgh. It is stated that Edward will receive the title Duke of Edinburgh, which his late father held. He married Sophie Rhys-Jones in 1999 and has two children, Lady Louise Windsor and James Windsor, Viscount Severn.
The monarch was relieved to see that a large offspring strengthened the family tree filled with unforgettable characters who are part of the history of England, and this ensured the permanence of the family on the throne. In addition to the 4 children of Queen Elizabeth II, the sovereign enjoyed the new generation of 8 grandchildren in life and met a new offspring of twelve great-grandchildren, which began with the birth of Savannah Phillips, daughter of her grandson Peter Phillips and his wife Esene.
