Who Is The Next Heir in Line to take the throne of England After Queen Elizabeth II?

Elizabeth reigned as Queen for over 70 years in the United Kingdom which is seven years longer than the previous longest-reigning monarch, Queen Victoria. She was Elizabeth’s great-great-grandmother. Elizabeth accepted the throne in 1952, after her father’s death, King George VI.

With the death of Queen Elizabeth II, the crown has been immediately passed on to her eldest son and heir, Charles, following the United Kingdom’s constitutional monarchy system.

Elizabeth’s son, Charles, became king just after Elizabeth II passed away and he us now King Charles III.

What is the Succession of the Crown Act of 2013?

The contemporary determination for the Succession of the United Kingdom’s throne arrived from the Succession to the Crown Act of 2013. It ended the system in which the son of a monarch holds precedence over a daughter in the line of succession. Now the eldest child (or the person next in line to the throne) will be the monarch, regardless of their gender. The new rule is applicable on to the children born after Oct. 28, 2011. The Act also declares the rule that if an heir marries a Roman Catholic, they would be barred from the line of Succession.
