Who is Queen Elizabeth a descendant of?
Elizabeth was born to Prince Albert and Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon and had a younger sister, Princess Margaret. She is also a descendant of Queen Victoria. Elizabeth married her distant cousin Philip Mountbatten and had four children: Prince Charles (heir apparent), Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward.
Why is Princess Anne not in line for the throne?
The children of the Princess Royal do not hold a royal title, as they are descended from the female line, but she remains 21st in line to the throne. Their father, Mark Phillips, turned down an earldom when he married Princess Anne, so they do not have courtesy titles.
