James is the Queen’s youngest grandchild, and he is the only son of Prince Edward and his wife, Sophie Rhys-Jones.

He was born in 2007 in Surrey and was described as “very cute and very cuddly" by his father. His full name is James Alexander Philip Theo Mountbatten-Windsor.

In order to avoid the “burdens of the royal titles,” Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex, decided that their children would have the courtesy titles of the children of an earl. That’s why James is a Viscount Severn and not Prince James.

After James was born, he was eighth in the line of succession to the British throne, but he was pushed down to tenth by Prince George and Princess Charlotte and will get even lower after the birth of Prince William and Kate Middleton's third child, which is expected to happen in April.

But that surely doesn’t bother young viscount, as he was spotted enjoying the last day of the Easter weekend. The family attended an Easter service at St George's Chapel on Sunday along with the Queen and other royals where James seemed to look upset.

But the 10-year-old cheered up on Monday when he was allowed to drive the family’s carat a “reasonably fast” speed. James was placed on an adult's lap as he took the vehicle for a spin.

In the meantime, his older sister, 14-year-old Lady Louise Windsor, mastered carriage-driving skills.

They both seemed to have an amazing Easter!
