If, for example, all the Windsors should disappear (hypothetically)? This is what a short inheritance scheme for King Gerg V would look like:

1. The line of Edward VIII (denied, died childless, you can simply forget about him).

2. King George VI line:

  • Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip (4 children, 8 grandchildren, 8 great-grandchildren);
  • Princess Margaret and Anthony Armstrong-Jones, 1st Earl of Snowden (2 children, 4 grandchildren).

3. Line of Dukes of Gloucester (Henry, Duke of Gloucester and Alice Montague-Douglas-Scott):

  • Prince Richard, Duke of Gloucester and Birgitte van Derse (3 children, 6 grandchildren).

4. Line of Dukes of Kent (Prince George, Duke of Kent and Princess Marina from Greece and Denmark):

  • Prince Edward, Duke of Kent and Catherine Worsley (3 children, 10 grandchildren);
  • Princess Alexandra, The Honorable Lady Ogilvy and James Ogilvy (2 children, 4 grandchildren);
  • Prince Michael of Kent and Baroness Maria-Christina von Reibniz (2 children, 2 grandchildren).

This is 59 people in the line of succession, plus some of those who are removed from the line due to conversion to Catholicism, or who married a Catholic woman and are either not in line or moved further down the line.

It is very difficult to destroy six dozen people in order to interrupt the dynasty. But, if hypothetically, this happens, the crown will continue to search.

How is a new monarch chosen next?

King George V was not the only living child of King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra. He was the only surviving son (his older brother lived to come of age, but died before his wedding and before their father.)

But King George V had sisters.

Her Majesty Louise of Great Britain, Duchess of Fife. Her grandson, James Carnegie, died in 2015. His son David Carnegie, 4th Duke of Fife, would probably have been the closest heir to the throne. He has an older sister, but they were born before the absolute birthright took effect.

The next oldest sister of Louise of Great Britain, Princess Victoria, was never married or had children.

The youngest of the sisters, Her Majesty Maud, Princess of Wales, became Queen of Norway. She was the mother of King Olav V, father of the current King of Norway, King Harald V.

Thus, the closest heir will be David Carnegie, 4th Duke of Fife, but the closest foreign royal house will be the Royal Family of Norway.
