1His son James Alexander Philip Theo, Viscount Severn was born on 17 December 2007.
2His daughter Louise Alice Elizabeth Mary was born on 8 November 2003.
3After their marriage, the Earl and Countess of Wessex announced that (with Queen Elizabeth II's permission) any future children of theirs will be "Prince" or "Princess" and "His/Her Royal Highness", but will be styled "Lord" or "Lady," as would children of a peer.
