The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh’s 10 great-grandchildren


The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh have hit double figures with their brood of great-grandchildren following the arrival of Zara Tindall’s baby son.

Lucas Philip Tindall is the couple’s 10th great-grandchild, arriving just over a month after their ninth, Princess Eugenie’s son, August Brooksbank.

The news has brought joy to the Windsors after a difficult few weeks, with Philip undergoing heart surgery, and the crisis sparked by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s interview with US talk show host Oprah Winfrey in which they accused the royal family of racism.

The family will be expanding even further this summer when Harry and Meghan have their second child, a daughter, who will be the Queen and Philip’s 11th great-grandchild.

Here is a look at the 10 great-grandchildren so far, from the oldest to the youngest:

Ten-year-old Savannah Phillips, who was born in 2010, is the Queen and Philip’s eldest great-grandchild.

She is the daughter of the Princess Royal’s son, Peter Phillips and his ex-wife Autumn.

The couple announced they were divorcing in 2020, but share custody and co-parent their children.

At Eugenie’s wedding in 2018, bridesmaid Savannah had pageboy Prince George trying to stifle laughter when she entertained him by pretending to play the trumpet in St George’s Chapel.

She was also once seen pushing George – her second cousin – down a grassy bank at a polo match, and also putting her hand over his mouth as the National anthem was played while they were on the Buckingham Palace balcony for Trooping The Colour.

Savannah’s younger sister, Isla, is eight years old and and was born in the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee year of 2012.

Her middle name is Elizabeth in honour of the monarch.

The Phillips sisters are not entitled to a royal title.

They are usually kept out of the limelight – but sometimes join other members of the family on the Buckingham Palace balcony for major events.

They are mostly spotted enjoying themselves as they play together at horse trials.

Future king George, born in 2013, is the oldest of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s children.

The seven-year-old has spent much of lockdown at William and Kate’s countryside home, Anmer Hall in Norfolk.
