The Royal House of Windsor – The current British Royal Family Tree
The Royal House of Windsor was founded in 1917, by royal proclamation of the Queen’s grandfather, King George V. The name was adopted as the new British Royal Family’s official name replacing that of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. This was due in the main to anti German feeling which was very much in evidence in Great Britain during World War I. Windsor remains the family name of the current British Royal Family.
The current head of the House of Windsor is her majesty Queen Elizabeth II, who ascended to the throne in 1952 and was crowned at the first televised coronation in 1953. She is married to Prince Philip, the Duke Of Edinburgh and they have four children, Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.
Their son and heir, Prince Charles – the Prince of Wales, has two sons from his marriage to Lady Diana Spencer whom was killed in a car crash in 1997. Prince William who is second in line to succession and Prince Harry. When Prince Charles remarried, in 2005, it was to his long time companion Camilla Parker-Bowles, however their union was initially met with a mixed response.
Princess Anne – The Princess Royal has been married twice, her first husband was Captain Mark Phillips and they produced two children, Peter and Zara Phillips. She is now married to Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Lawrence.
Prince Andrew – The Duke of York married Sarah Ferguson but they later divorced. They have two children, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.
Prince Edward – The Earl of Wessex married Sophie Rhys-Jones and they have two children, Lady Louise Windsor and James Viscount Severn.
