With all of the excitement happening in England, with the announcement of Harry and Meghanâ€™s pregnancy and the wedding of Princess Eugenie, itâ€™s easy to forget that there are tons of other royal families around the globe â€” some of whom retain much more power than the current English royals.
Thereâ€™s been a real baby boom in the last few years, with many of these families choosing to have at least three children, if not more. This has led to a real explosion of royal births in the last 10 years, but many of these children remain largely unknown outside of their own countries.
Today, weâ€™re here to explore some of the worldâ€™s most famous royal children, and how soon it will be until theyâ€™re legitimate players on the international stage.
Prince George of Cambridge
Currently third in line to the British throne, Prince George of Cambridge is the son of Prince William and Duchess Catherine, born in 2013. Heâ€™s most recently been seen frolicking as a page boy at several royal and royal-adjacent weddings this summer.
Georgeâ€™s full name is George Alexander Louis, and as a future monarch, his birth was celebrated by Commonwealth countries around the world with a 21-gun salute, and by the English Royal Mint with a rare commemorative coin. His first royal tour was when he was only nine months old, and although heâ€™s been photographed with heads of state like Tony Abbott and Barack Obama, his parents are determined to help him grow up out of the spotlight.
