British Monarchy Succession Question

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
This is a little sad, I know, but something has been bugging me for a while. Not only because I want the answer but also it bugs me that I don't already *know* the answer...

At the moment, once the Queen dies then Charles becomes monarch and William follows. Hence why we are always being told that William is our future King. But the question I have is, what happens if Charles dies first? Is it still William's right or does it then fall to Andrew instead?

    William. Then Harry (fucking hell, imagine that).

    Why wouldn't it be Andrew?

    Andrew then William I think. Scary beans.

    It follows the route of the eldest son (soon to be eldest child) so

    Queen, Charles, William [William's sons/daughters (assuming the law on female succession is changed as planned)] Harry [Harry's sons/daughters], Andrew, Beatrice [son's daughters], etc, etc
