Who is he? Arthur Chatto, brother of Sam, is the youngest son of Lady Sarah Chatto and David Chatto. 20-year-old Arthuror "Art" as he likes to go by on Instagramis the grandson of the Queen's sister, Princess Margaret. Lady Sarah Chatto is her only daughter.

Where in the line of succession is he? A solid 26th.

What does he do? Art is in his third year at Edinburgh University, studying (funnily enough) History of Art. By the looks of Instagram, he's pretty outdoorsy, enjoying mountain climbing and diving. He also seems to dabble in a bit of the old #sponcon, with a link to technical mountain clothing brand Jöttnar in his bio.

3. Charles Armstrong-Jones, Viscount Linley

Who is he? Charles Armstrong-Jones, who's also known by his courtesy title Viscount Linley, is a descendant of the Queen's sister, Princess Margaret. He and sister Margarita are the children of Margaret's only son, David Armstrong-Jones, 2nd Earl of Snowdon.

Where in the line of succession is he? 22nd.

What does he do? 20-year-old Charles keeps his Instagram account private, but according to his LinkedIn profile, the royal has just started his third year at Loughborough University studying Product Design Engineering. The former Eton student recently made a public appearance with his great aunt, Queen Elizabeth, at a church service in Balmoral, Scotland.

Who is she? The younger sister of Charles, 17-year-old Margarita is the only granddaughter of Princess Margaret, the Queen's sister. Margarita is the daughter of, furniture maker David Armstrong-Jones, 2nd Earl of Snowdon and Serena Armstrong-Jones, Countess of Snowdon.

Where in the line of succession is she? 23rd. Margarita and her brother come just after Zara Tindall's daughters, Mia and Lena.

What does she do? Margarita is only 17, so she's not even reached university age yet, never mind career. But on the bio of her (private) Instagram account, she links to a jewelry page, Matita Jewellery, which is described as "handmade silver jewelry." So it seems the creative genes have been passed down from her dad.

5. Edward Windsor, Lord Downpatrick

Continue reading below ↓

Who is he? Edward Windsor, or Eddy Downpatrick as he's known professionally, is a royal family member stemming from Prince Edward, the Duke of Kent. Prince Edward (Eddy's grandfather) is the son of Queen Elizabeth's uncle, Prince George, making him the Queen's cousin. Prince Edward's eldest son, George Windsor, is Eddy's dad. Make sense? Oh, also, Eddy is the godson of Princess Diana.

Where in the line of succession is he? He's not. He was excluded for becoming a Roman Catholic.

What does he do? A former financial analyst, 30-year-old Eddy is now a fashion designer, having founded his own label, Fidir. The menswear brand is inspired by the landscape of the Scottish Highlands and Islands, which Eddy loves. "Nowhere else in the world makes me quite so misty-eyed. Rarefied light… brooding gloom… there’s a lot of the sensorial to be taken from that," he once said in an interview.

6. Lady Marina Windsor

Who is she? Lady Marina Windsor is the 27-year-old sister of Eddy Downpatrick and Lady Amelia Windsor.

Where in the line of succession is she? Just like her brother, Eddy, Marina was removed from the line of succession for being Catholic. She was confirmed in the Catholic church (following her mother's faith) in 2008.

Continue reading below ↓

What does she do? The former Cambridge University student keeps a low profile in comparison to her siblings. While she once modeled in Tatler (back in 2010), it's been reported that she didn't want to pursue fashion as a career, instead expressing interest in foreign diplomacy. But who knows whether that ever materialized.

7. Lady Amelia Windsor

Continue reading below ↓

Who is she? 24-year-old Lady Amelia Windsor is another granddaughter of Prince Edward, the Duke of Kent, who's the Queen's first cousin. She is the youngest of three, and a daughter of George Windsor, Earl of St Andrews, and Sylvana Tomaselli, a Canadian academic and historian.

Where in the line of succession is she? 39thand she's the only one of her siblings to be in line to the throne.

What does she do? Lady Amelia Windsor is perhaps the most high profile of this young royal bunch. The model has a casual 80k followers on Instagram and has walked in fashion shows for the likes of Dolce & Gabbana. The University of Edinburgh graduate is fluent in Italian (È moda, cercala) and has also tried her hand at fashion design with a footwear and accessories collaboration with Penelope Chilvers and Warchild.

8. Colombus Taylor

Continue reading below ↓

Who is he? Colombus' royal heritage goes a little something like this: his mom (Lady Helen Taylor) is the granddaughter of Prince George, Duke of Kent, who was Queen Elizabeth's uncle. Got that? He's basically one of the Queen's first cousin's grandsons. I think.

Where in the line of succession is he? At 44th in line, it's pretty safe to say Colombus will never be King.

What does he do? I'm not going to lie, I'm not really sure. But I have a sneaky suspicion he might live in New York, which is something. 25-year-old Columbus occasionally attends fancy events like the Many Hopes Spring Ball and the Yorkville Ball at The Union Club (both in New York) and gets papped by photographers when he's there. And that, my friends, is all we have to go on for this Insta-private royal.

9. Cassius Taylor

Continue reading below ↓

Who is he? Brother of Colombus, 23-year-old Cassius Taylor has the same, elaborate royal family tree. Cassius Taylor is the son of artists Timothy Taylor and Lady Helen Taylor, whose father is the Queen's cousin, Prince Edward, Duke of Kent.

Where in the line of succession is he? 45th.

What does he do? Following in his parents' footsteps, Cassius is into the arts. Having studied Arts Management (specializing in music and art business), at Goldsmiths, University of London, Cassius is now looking for a job in the music industry. And by the looks of his Instagram account, Cassius is friends with people in high places, e.g. Rafferty Law (Jude Law's son). He's cool, is basically all you need to know.

10. Flora Ogilvy

Continue reading below ↓

Who is she? Okay, here goes: Flora's dad, James Ogilvy, is the son of Princess Alexandra, Queen Elizabeth's first cousin. Princess Alexandra is another child of the Queen's uncle, Prince George.

Where in the line of succession is she? 56th. Although if she was born now, Flora would be 55th, seeing as she's older than her brother. But as the archaic rules of succession which prioritized men over women regardless of birth order were still in force when Flora was born, she was bumped down following the birth of her brother Alexander in 1996.

What does she do? 25-year-old Flora, like many of her royal relatives, works in the art world. After studying History of Art (a royal favorite) at Bristol University between 2013 to 2016, she set up her own company, Arteviste, which "creates editorial, video and events-based content focused on the contemporary art market" according to LinkedIn. Flora credits herself as a writer, curator, and speaker in her specialist area of art.

11. Alexander Ogilvy

Who is he? Alexander is related to the royals via Queen' Elizabeth's uncle, Prince George. George (who was also the Duke of Kent). He had a daughter named Princess Alexandra, and she is Alexander's grandmother.

Where in the line of succession is he? A far-fetched 55th.

What does he do? Um, good question. Another member of the private Instagram crowd, 23-year-old Alexander keeps a low profile. But it seems, from his sister Flora's social media, that he likes to travel and he lives in the US at the moment.

12. Zenouska Mowatt

Who is she? Zenouska is the daughter of Marina Ogilvy, who is the daughter of Princess Alexandra, another of the Queen's first cousins.

Where in the line of succession is she? Bottom of the pile (but only in number), Zenouska is 59th in line to the throne.

Continue reading below ↓

What does she do? The 29-year-old royal relative lives in London and is head of marketing at Halcyon Days, a luxury retailer selling home wear, jewelry, and accessories. By the looks of her Instagram account, Zenouska has a love of fashion, regularly showing off outfits by designers like Mary Katrantzou, Alessandra Rich, and a LOT of Carolina Herrera.
