Who are the Queen's great-grandchildren and how many does she have?

Several of the Queen's great-grandchildren are expected to attend the Jubilee 2022 celebrations and some are more well-known than others...

The Queen’s great-grandchildren have been glimpsed more often at huge royal events in recent years, though some of them are perhaps more well-known than others.

Royal fans will no doubt already be pretty knowledgeable about Queen Elizabeth’s children and even the Queen’s grandchildren, many of which have been spotted out even more than usual as the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee 2022 celebrations approach. But Her Majesty is also a devoted great-grandmother to young royals and though they might feature lower down in the royal line of succession, fans are always delighted to see him at major family events. 

Only a few of them are set to appear on the balcony of Buckingham Palace with her during the Jubilee weekend. Though that won’t stop many people from hoping to catch a brief glimpse of more of the extended Royal Family during the celebrations. 

So here we reveal how many great-grandchildren the monarch has and who the Queen's great-grandchildren are...

How many great-grandchildren does the Queen have?

The Queen currently has 12 great-grandchildren, with four of them born within months of each other. Already a proud mother, grandmother and great-grandmother of the wider Royal Family, Her Majesty welcomed two new great-grandsons and two new great-granddaughters last year alone. None of these new arrivals has a title, however, and currently only three of the Queen's great-grandchildren are referred to as "Prince" or "Princess".

These are the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. As the children of working royals, it's thought that the Cambridge kids could also be the only great-grandchildren to join the Queen on the balcony over the Jubilee weekend. 

Who are the Queen's great-grandchildren?

Savannah Phillips

Age: 11
Birthday: December 29, 2010
Parents:
Peter Phillips and Autumn Kelly

Although she is the eldest of the Queen's great-grandchildren, Savannah Phillips does not have a royal title though she's 19th in line to the throne. Savannah caught royal fans' attention during the 2018 Trooping the Colour, where she played with Princess Charlotte and Prince George and even reportedly told the future King to stop singing during the National Anthem.

She went on to serve as a bridesmaid at the wedding of her father's cousin Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank in October that year. More recently, Savannah joined Peter Phillips at the Service of Thanksgiving held in honor of the late Prince Philip, where her great-grandmother also made a special appearance.

Age: 10
Birthday: March 29, 2012
Parents: Peter Phillips and Autumn Kelly

Like her older sister, Isla does not have a royal title, but like many of the Queen's great-grandchildren she has the middle name, Elizabeth, as a nod to her "Gan-Gan" herself. Isla is now 20th in line to the throne and also attended Prince Philip's memorial alongside Savannah and Peter Phillips in March 2022. Over the years Isla has frequently been pictured at the Queen's official birthday parade, Trooping the Color. And so whilst she's not the child of a working royal and won't be on the balcony this year, it's thought Isla could join in with the celebrations in some way.

Prince George

Age: 8
Birthday:
July 22, 2013
Parents:
Prince William and Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge

Two years after Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding, the long-term couple welcomed their first child, Prince George. The young royal is not only one of the oldest of the Queen's great-grandchildren, but also set to be the future King following his father Prince William and grandfather Prince Charles. It's said that Prince George was told about his huge destiny by Prince William and Kate Middleton a "controlled" way

And in recent years have seen Prince George appear more frequently at public events, perhaps preparing for his more future role. Last summer he attended the Euros 2020 final alongside his parents, cheering on Team England who narrowly lost out and in February 2022, fans claimed Prince George favors the Queen's "shy" father after watching the England vs Wales Six Nations rugby match.

As the future King he's expected to be equally prominent at the Jubilee celebrations and could even appear twice on the balcony, with some suggesting that the Queen is set to send a "strong message" on the final day alongside her heirs.

Mia Tindall

Age: 8
Birthday: January 7, 2014
Parents: Zara Tindall and Mike Tindall

According to People, Mike and Zara Tindall took a somewhat unconventional route when choosing their first child's name as Mia is "mine" in Italian and "beloved" in Egyptian. The eldest of the Tindalls three children, Mia is relatively close in age to Prince George and just like him, Princess Charlotte and Savannah and Isla Phillips, she accompanied her parents to the memorial for Prince Philip earlier this year. Mia Tindall wore a Royal Family hand-me-down to the service in the form of a beautiful coat that her cousin Savannah was previously pictured wearing, perhaps showcasing the close bond between the Queen's great-grandchildren.

Princess Charlotte

Age: 7
Birthday: May 2, 2015
Parents: Prince William and Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge 

Often said to display a rather cheeky side to her, Princess Charlotte is Prince William and Duchess Kate's second child and has often displayed her growing confidence over the years. It's been suggested that she's the Queen's favorite great-grandchild and fans have even expressed their belief that Princess Charlotte resembles the Queen after she attended the royals' Easter Sunday service in April. Just like her siblings, Princess Charlotte is expected to feature prominently over the Queen's Platinum Jubilee weekend and fans likely can't wait to see her!

Prince Louis

Age: 4
Birthday: April 23, 2018
Parents: Prince William and Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge

Kate Middleton and Prince William welcomed Prince Louis in 2018, just a month before his uncle and aunt Prince Harry and Meghan Markle married at St George's Chapel near Windsor Castle. As a result it came as no surprise that the little royal didn't attend the ceremony, though as he's grown older Prince Louis has been spotted more frequently alongside his siblings. 

From making his Trooping the Color balcony debut to the Cambridges' annual Christmas card photo, any glimpses of the youngest Cambridge child are met with delight from fans. Now as one of the Queen's great-grandchildren it's thought that he too might get to play a bigger role over the Jubilee weekend.

Lena Tindall

Age: 3
Birthday: June 18, 2018
Parents: Zara Tindall and Mike Tindall

Lena, which is "light" in Greek, has quite a few royal connections, despite being one of the lesser-known of the Queen's great-grandchildren. Just like Princess Charlotte and Savannah Phillips, Lena has the middle name Elizabeth in honor of Her Majesty. She and her siblings aren't often seen in public compared to the Cambridge children and their Phillips cousins and haven't been officially pictured on the Buckingham Palace balcony yet. Sadly, as a daughter of non-working royals, this year won't see this change though she could now be considered old enough to attend some of the Jubilee events.

Archie Mountbatten-Windsor

Age: 3
Birthday: May 6, 2019
Parents: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor is the firstborn child of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. He doesn't have a royal title despite being a son of the Duke of Cambridge, who is sixth in line to the throne, but he'll one day be entitled to the title of "Prince" when Prince Charles becomes King. Since his birth Prince Harry and Meghan "stepped back" from royal life and settled in their Santa Barbara mansion, where they've released only few exciting snaps of the now-three-year-old. Though Archie will soon be returning for the UK for the first time since the family moved Stateside to attend the Jubilee celebrations for his great-grandmother the Queen. 

August Brooksbank

Age: 1
Birthday: February 9, 2021
Parents: Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank

Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank welcomed their first son August Philip Hawke Brooksbank in February 2021 and was the first of the Queen's four great-grandchildren born that year. It's understood that his middle name Philip was chosen in tribute to his great-grandfather who sadly passed away just a few months after his birth.

It's thought that August's first birthday might have been spent with some of his royal cousins. And although Princess Eugenie has shared several sweet pictures of him on her personal Instagram, fans will no doubt be hoping for another glimpse of little August - this time alongside his royal relatives marking the Jubilee. 

Lucas Tindall

Age: 1
Birthday:
March 21, 2021
Parents: Zara Tindall and Mike Tindall

Lucas Tindall is understood to have been born in rather surprising circumstances at the Tindalls' home at Gatcombe Park in Gloucestershire. Shortly after their son's arrival was announced Mike Tindall revealed Zara gave birth on the bathroom floor after labour was unexpectedly quick. No official photos have been released of Lucas and he didn't join his oldest sister at Prince Philip's memorial earlier this year. Though with so many royals predicted to gather for the Jubilee, it's possible fans could get to see the Queen's great-grandchild at some point over the weekend.

Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor

Age: 11 months
Birthday: June 4, 2021
Parents: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex

Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor is eighth in the royal line of succession and, of course, her name is a tribute to both the Queen and Princess Diana. So far only one adorable image has been shared of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's daughter, posted when she was just six months old to celebrate Christmas 2021 and taken by Alexi Lubomirski. 

Despite now almost being a year old it's believed that she's the only one of the Queen's great-grandchildren that the monarch has yet to meet. Though it's now been suggested that the Queen could meet Lilibet on her first birthday which falls on the Saturday of the Jubilee weekend.

Parents: Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi

Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi's daughter is the 12th and youngest of the Queen's great-grandchildren. Buckingham Palace confirmed her safe arrival on September 22nd, two days after her birth on September 18th. The tiny royal tot was born weighing 6 pounds and 2 ounces at at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London. Little Sienna has an older half-brother, Christopher 'Wolfie', who Edoardo welcomed with his former partner Dara Huang.
