Yeah I was wondering about that who gets the crown, does Elizabeth get to chose her heir? or it goes by seniority in the waiting list.
if it is true the house of Stewart are the true heirs to the British throne
The end of the Stuart line with the death of Queen Anne led to the drawing up of the Act of Settlement in 1701, which provided that only Protestants could hold the throne. The next in line according to the provisions of this act was George of Hanover, yet Stuart princes remained in the wings. The Stuart legacy was to linger on in the form of claimants to the Crown for another century.

The Windsor family name was Hanover of German decent before the war. Maybe some one else could elaborate more on the Hanover / Windsor name, and if it is true the house of Stewart are the true heirs to the British throne
Diana’s bloodline was even more pure ROYALTY than Charles’ is. She can trace her ancestry back to the Scottish House of Stewart (at least to King Charles II). The current Prince Charles’ ancestry is a mixture of Russian, German, and French along with the English. The House of Windsor was originally called Saxe-Coburg-Gothe, but the name was changed in 1917 because it sounded too German (8) – especially after the First World War.
