Prince Philip has died at age 99, and his death will not impact the royal line of succession.

According to Buckingham Palace, a royal can make it to the throne two ways: ancestry and laws put into place by the British government.Next in line is one of Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth II's four children, their eldest son Prince Charles. He will become king if the queen dies or steps down.
Prince William would follow, and the chance of Prince Harry becoming King of England in his lifetime is slim
As the oldest son of Prince Charles, Prince William is next in line for the throne after his father."There is nothing to prevent William becoming king, other than his own premature death," Robert Hazell, a professor of government and the constitution at the University College London, previously told Insider. Following Prince William in the line of succession is Prince George, his and Kate's oldest son. The couple's other children, Charlotte and Louis, follow after their brother in the royal line of succession in the order of their birth.
The chance of Prince Harry becoming the King of England was slim even before he stepped back from royal life. According to the line of succession determined by Buckingham Palace, he would only be eligible to become king after all of Prince William and Middleton's children.
