How the royal family has evolved over the years
Family Tree Now is a new feature for Wired magazine, offering up a timeline of royal history in one tidy timeline.
To mark the launch, the site has released a digital archive of every royal family member that has lived, worked, and died.
The site also has an interactive timeline of every major royal event in history, including the coronavirus pandemic and the coronave of the Queen.
The family tree is not new to Wired.
The online news site previously had a family tree of the royal families, which included the monarch, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Charles, Prince William, the Queen Mother, Prince George, Prince Harry, Prince Philip, Princess Diana, Prince Michael, Princess Elizabeth, Prince Justin, and Prince Charles’ brother George VI.
In the case of the Duchess of Cornwall, it was the late Queen Elizabeth II who was the first person to put her name to the family tree.
“I was so excited to see her first family tree,” said David Noyes, the senior editor of the family history magazine Royal Family.
“She is an incredibly fascinating woman.
We had never really seen her as a member of the British royal family before.”
But the Duchess’s family tree was far from the first time she has been on the map.
In the past, the royal couple have been linked to their first marriage, the “Great Famine” of the 1930s, which saw the deaths of a million people and a huge financial cost to the country.
The royal couple’s relationship with the late King Edward VIII, who was also a member, ended with the death of the Duke of Westminster, and there have been some rumors that Prince Harry might marry his stepdaughter, Meghan Markle, to further their royal relationship.
The Prince of Wales has also been on a family-tree of sorts since he and the Duchess met at the height of their royal careers, as well as the birth of Prince George and the deaths and marriages of his siblings.
“We are very close friends,” the Duke said of the Prince of Kent.
“The Duke and I are very much connected in some way.”
It seems that Prince Charles is on the same page as the Duchess, and it is likely that the Royal Family are even closer than that.
In his new book, Charles and Me, Prince and His Friends, Prince Edward writes about his time in England, in which he became the most-watched person on the planet for his work in the Royal family.
“In England,” he writes, “it was my turn.
I became known for my work in royal matters, which in many ways were the royal business.
But, above all, I was known for being the King’s man.
This is why, in my early years, my relationship with my wife, Anne Boleyn, was not as close as it would become.”
According to Prince Edward, Anne was the last person he ever spoke to on the phone.
“Anne was the Queen’s most loyal servant, but her love for me was not reciprocated,” he wrote.
“To this day, when I look back, it is clear that I was not her best servant.
As far as the King was concerned, it must have been obvious that I had fallen short of his expectations.”
