Who is in Charge of the Royal Family?

The monarchical head of state of the United Kingdom and 14 other Commonwealth realms is Queen Elizabeth II. She is the head of the royal family. She has four children, eight grandchildren, and twelve great-grandchildren. 

The Lord Chamberlain's "List of the Royal Family" mentions all of George VI's descendants and their spouses (including Sarah, Duchess of York, who is divorced), along with the Queen's cousins with royal rank and their spouses. The Lord Chamberlain's list applies for the purposes of regulating the use of royal symbols and images of the family. 

Meanwhile, the website of the royal family provides a list of "Members of the Royal Family"; those listed correspond to the royal family members mentioned and pictured below, with the exception of Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, and the Duchess of Kent.


The royal family's guidelines on greeting a member of the royal family say they should first be greeted with "Your Royal Highness". The status of Royal Highness is restricted to children of a monarch, male-line grandchildren of a monarch, the children of the eldest child of the Prince of Wales, and their wives.

The core of the royal family is made up of Queen Elizabeth II; Charles, Prince of Wales; Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall; Prince William, Duke of Cambridge; Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge; Anne, Princess Royal; Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex; and Sophie, Countess of Wessex. They carry out royal duties full-time.

Lower profile relatives who perform some duties are Prince Edward, Duke of Kent; Princess Alexandra; Prince Richard, Duke of Gloucester; and Birgitte, Duchess of Gloucester.
