British Royal Family

Royal rascals: How many great-grandchildren does The Queen have?

Meet the full (and very adorable) cast and crew of the next generation of royal cuties.

By Bella Brennan
Like any family, the British Royal Family is constantly expanding. So you might be asking yourself just how many great-grandchildren does The Queen have?
At 92 years old, Queen Elizabeth is the proud mother of four, grandmother to eight and with the recent arrival of Prince William and Duchess Catherine's perfect little Prince Louis, great-grandmother to six!
That number is set to clock up to seven when Zara and Mike Tindall welcome their second baby in the coming months.
Yep, this is one busy Gan-Gan!
While the spotlight usually shines bright on Prince George and Princess Charlotte, their cousins are just as adorable. And after this weekend, it's clear Savannah Phillips is a royal to watch. In the now-viral moment, during the national anthem at Trooping the Colour Savannah cheekily cupped her hand over second cousin Prince George's mouth in an effort to get him to be quiet.
Keep reading as we introduce you to all of The Queen's great-grandchildren...
Savannah Phillips totally stole the show after this now-viral moment at Trooping the Colour.

1. Savannah Phillips, seven, 15th in line to the British throne

Savannah Phillips is the oldest child of Peter and Autumn Phillips and has become an overnight sensation after she place her hand over Prince George's mouth at Trooping the Colour this weekend.
Peter, who married Canadian management consultant Autumn in 2008, is the oldest son of The Queen's daughter Princess Anne.
Savannah was born on the 29th of December at the Gloucestershire Royal Hospital in Gloucester, England and was the first great-grandchild of The Queen and Prince Philip.
The Queen was present for her christening at the at Holy Cross Church in Avening, Gloucestershire and Savannah wore the replica gown of the one used by Queen Victoria's children, created by the Queen's personal dresser Angela Kelly after the original became too fragile for use.
It's the same gown both Prince George and Princess Charlotte wore for their christenings. Along with her little sister Isla, Savannah made her Buckingham Palace balcony debut at last year's Trooping the Colour.
As her father doesn't have an official royal title, neither does Savannah or her younger sister.
Prince William was none too impressed with Savannah when she did this, but fans loved watching the royal kids just be kids.
Savannah Phillips is Queen Elizabeth's oldest great-grandchild.

2. Isla Phillips, five, 16th in line to the British throne

You probably spotted Isla hanging out with her cousins at the 2017 Trooping the Colour event, when she made her balcony debut with her big sister Savannah.
The duo returned to the annual parade this weekend, and the following day enjoyed a fun day out with cousins Prince George and Princess Charlotte at the polo.
Six-year-old Isla is the second daughter of Peter and Autumn Phillips and is extremely close to her Savannah and cousin, Mia Tindall.
According to reports, Isla and Savannah live a relatively normal life in London.
Isla might have royal ties but she's not a princess.

3. Prince George, four, 3rd in line to the British throne

As Prince William and Duchess Catherine's first-born son, Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge is perhaps the most famous of royal great-grandkids.
From stealing the show at Princess Charlotte's christening, to just this week when he cheekily flicked his little sister's head, the sassy four-year-old has a cult following thanks to his hilarious antics.
Last September marked a huge milestone for gorgeous George after he started at Thomas's Battersea and according to proud Prince William, the King-in-waiting isn't too fussed about inheriting the British throne and instead wants to be a police officer when he grows up.
"He is obsessed, actually by the police. Cars, toys, everything," Wills recently revealed.

4. Mia Tindall, three, 18th in line to the British throne

Mia Tindall is the oldest child of Zara and Mike Tindall and the granddaughter of Princess Anne.
We are often given glimpses of the outgoing three-year-old when she joins her parents are horse riding events in the British countryside to cheer on her equestrian champ mum.
But it was the heartwarming moment the cherubic royal stole Queen Elizabeth's handbag during Her Majesty's 90th birthday photo shoot, by famed snapper Annie Leibovitz, that made her a household name!
"It just happened at the right time. She was being a bit naughty," proud papa Mike told Good Morning Britain of the now iconic photo.
"The Queen got it quite right when she told her: 'Just hold the handbag now' and she did that. It ended up being a great photo for her. It just turned out to be the right photo at the right time and it will be something we'll always cherish, I think."
Just like Isla and Savannah, because Zara doesn't have a royal title neither does little Mia.
And it's a decision Zara is grateful for.
"I'm very lucky that both my parents decided to not use the title and we grew up and did all the things that gave us the opportunity to do," she once explained to The Times.
Mia Tindall loves the great outdoors.

5. Princess Charlotte, two, 4th in line to the British throne

As her third birthday on May 2nd looms ever closer, it's clear Princess Charlotte has grown into a confident little girl. This week, she charmed the world with her sweet royal wave on the way into the hospital to meet her new royal brother.
And while she might not be the direct heir to the throne when it comes to family dynamics, The Queen says her great-granddaughter is very much in charge - and she especially loves to boss her four-year-old big brother Prince George around.
It's a character trait that mum Duchess Catherine has also backed up with the 36-year-old last year remarking her daughter is "the one in charge."
In January, Charlotte started the first chapter of her education at Willcocks Nursery School in London and the palace released a set of stunning photos to mark the occasion.
According to People, the tiny royal is as charming as she looks. "She's very sweet and very confident - she's always chatting away," an insider told the publication.
"She is so polite, but also fun and energetic," the source adds.
In April, Princess Charlotte also made royal history thanks to the changes in the succession laws.
With the arrival of her brother Louis, Princess Charlotte has become the first-ever female royal not to be bumped down the succession line to make way for a younger male. What an incredible moment!

6. Prince Louis of Cambridge, 5th in line to the British throne

Prince Louis is not yet a month old nut he's already stolen his family's heart.
"We are both so pleased at the news. It is a great joy to have another grandchild, the only trouble is I don't know how I am going to keep up with them," Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla said in a statement.
While great-grandparents The Queen and Prince Philip said they were "delighted" by the news.
We can't wait to watch the new prince grow up before our eyes!
