- James is the only son of Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex. When he was born on December 17, 2007 in Surrey, his father described him as "very cute and very cuddly," according to the BBC.
- He is currently twelfth in line to the throne. At the time of his birth, James was eighth in the order of succession, just in front of his older sister, Lady Louise.
- Upon birth, he received the title of Lord. When Prince Edward married Sophie Rhys-Jones in June of 1999, they decided, with the approval of the Queen, that their future children would receive the courtesy titles of the children of an earl, rather than Prince or Princess.
- James lives with his family in Surrey. Prince Edward, his wife, and two children currently live at Bagshot Park, a 17th-century estate near Windsor.

While his cousins Prince William, Prince Harry, Princess Beatrice and others have the title of 'Prince' and 'Princess', James and Louise have different titles. This is because, during the time of their parents' wedding in 1999, it was decided, with the approval of the Queen, that their future children would receive the courtesy titles of the children of an earl, rather than Prince or Princess. As reported byBBC— "It is thought this decision was made to avoid some of the burdens of royal titles." Although he was born James Alexander Philip Theo Mountbatten-Windsor, the young royal goes by James, Viscount Severn. In 2020, his mother Sophie stated that should he decided to change his title or the styling of the same, he can do so after he turns 18.
A viscount is the fourth rank in the British peerage system — above it is the title of 'earl' and below it is 'baron'. The title of Viscount is either the name of a place or surname or a combination of both. James' title, Viscount Severn, was given to him in honor of the River Severn, the longest river in the UK. The river flows through mid-Wales across Shropshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire. There are around 270 viscountcies in the UK. His title would be subject to change if his father were to pass away, seeing that he would then gain the title of 'Earl'.
James, Viscount Severn is currently 12th in line for the throne. As reported byExpress, he is ahead of his sister in terms of succession although she is older than him. Although the laws of primogeniture changed back in 2013, meaning that technically Lady Louise would not come after her younger brother concerning the line of succession, he still would have the right to ascend to the throne before her.
As reported by theRoyal UK, the current line of succession is 1. Charles, The Prince of Wales 2. Prince William, The Duke of Cambridge 3. Prince George of Cambridge 4. Princess Charlotte of Cambridge 5. Prince Louis of Cambridge 6. Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex 7. Master Archie Mountbatten-Windsor 8. Prince Andrew, The Duke of York 9.
