British monarchy - question of succession

Jump to last reply

On a recent trip to Britain, a guide mentioned that if PRINCE CHARLES were to pre-decease his mother QUEEN ELIZABETH, that the crown would pass to his younger brother PRINCE ANDREW after his mother’s demise as the law now stands.


However, upon Prince Andrew’s death, the crown would revert to PRINCE WILLIAM since Andrew has no male heirs. Could this be true? Remember I am from the other side of the pond and not sure of these matters. Flanner? Others?
