When we think of the children of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Prince Charles immediately comes to mind. Over the years he has received so much attention in the press about his brothers and sisters that many people do not even know how much he really has or who they are.
Some may be able to appoint a brother thanks to his marriage to Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson and the amount of media attention she brought to the royal family in the 1980s and early 1990s with her tear-scandal scandal. But if you find it difficult to name others, you are not the only one. Even if you are more royal, you can name each of them, but you are just curious about how old they are.
This is the number of children that Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh have and how old they are.
Charles, Prince of Wales
Prince Charles is of course the oldest son of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip and the heir to the throne who is visible to the British throne.
Her Majesty gave birth to him on November 14, 1948. Charles married Lady Diana Spencer in 1981 and they had two children of their own, Prince William in 1982 and Prince Harry in 1984. He and Princess Diana divorced her tragic death in 1996, a year earlier. In 2005 Charles tied the knot with his old love Camilla Parker Bowles.
He is the longest-lasting heir to British history and the longest-serving Prince of Wales; a title that he has held since 1958.
Anne, Princess Royal
Charles’ sister, whom you may or may not have heard of, is Princess Anne. She was born on August 15, 1950 and is the only daughter of Her Majesty and Prince Philip.
Princess Royal married Mark Phillips in 1973, with whom she had two children, Peter Phillips and Zara Tindall. Things between the couple didn’t work and they ended divorce in 1992. Anne remarried the same year with Timothy Laurence.
The princess has a reputation for attending more assignments than any other royal. She was even named the hardest working member of the royal family in 2018, as well as in 2017 and 2016.
Prince Andrew, Duke of York
In addition to Charles, Prince Andrew is the most famous queen and Prince Philip.
After the birth of Princess Anne, Elizabeth II and her husband waited for more than ten years for another child and on February 19, 1960, Andrew was born. The duke of York followed in the footsteps of his older brother and had a grand wedding on television in 1986. He married Sarah Ferguson in a lavish ceremony at Westminster Abbey and the couple later welcomed two daughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie .
In the course of their marriage, Andrew and Fergie created front pages for a number of rather outrageous reasons and divorced in 1996. However, they have maintained a close relationship with this day. In fact, their unwavering support and kindness toward one another have many believers (or at least hope) that they will meet again someday.
Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex
Finally, we have Prince Edward, who may call some the forgotten royal. The youngest son of Queen and Philip is so under the radar that many people do not even know that he exists. But yes, Queen Elizabeth II and her husband have four children.
Edward was born on March 10, 1964. In 1999 he married Sophie Rhys-Jones, now the Countess of Wessex. He is the only one of the Queen’s children who is still married to their first husband. Like any of his brothers and sisters, although Edward has two children. He and his wife welcomed their daughter, Lady Louise Windsor, in 2003, and their son, James, Viscount Severn, in 2007.
