Who's next in line? Your guide to the new order of succession to the British throne


The first child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will become third in line to the British throne.

When baby Cambridge arrives, he or she will displace Prince Harry, who will drop to fourth in line, and Prince Andrew, Duke of York, to fifth.

A historic change in the law was rushed through earlier this year to ensure William and Kate's first-born would ascend to the throne regardless of the gender.
