Recently, in part because of a rather high-profile wedding, many have once again began to appreciate the Royal Family's long service and dedication to their duties. While the most senior members are very well-known and have spent many years carrying out various royal responsibilities and, in many cases, serving in the military, the further down the line you go, you may find some unique stories. In a number of cases, the less senior family members still have a number of royal roles to fill, but they also are able to pursue other interests.

Lady Rose Gilman

Rose Gilman is the youngest child of the Duke of Gloucester, the Queen's first cousin, and the grandson of King George V. Prior to her marriage, she began working in the movie industry under her maiden name of Rose Windsor. Her credits include two "Harry Potter" movies.

Prince Michael of Kent

Prince Michael is also the Queen's first cousin and the grandson of King George V. For several decades, he forfeited any claim he might have had to the throne as he married a Roman Catholic woman in the 1970s, even though the marriage was eventually annulled. He was later reinstated after a new law was passed in 2013. The prince is also an accomplished bobsledder, and was a reserve for the 1972 Winter Olympics.

Catherine Oxenberg

Catherine Oxenberg was born in America and has connections to various European monarchies, and is a distant cousin of the British Royal Family. Oxenberg would play Princess Diana in a 1982 movie, but she is likely best known for her role as Amanda Carrington in the 1980s series "Dynasty."

Zara Tindall

Zara Tindall (maiden name Phillips) is the second-born grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II.

She is actually quite well-known in the United Kingdom, though less so elsewhere in the world. A highly-skilled equestrian, she was named to the Olympic teams for 2004 and 2008, but was unable to compete after her horse was injured. She was able to compete at the 2012 Summer Olympics and didn't disappoint, helping the British Eventing Team win silver.

Other distinctions she has received include being named the BBC Sports Personality of the Year in 2006 being appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire in 2007. In 2011, she married rugby player Mike Tindall.

Princess Anne

Princess Anne is the Queen's only daughter and Zara's mother. Like her daughter, she is well-known in certain areas of the world and not as much in others. Her first husband was Mark Phillips, who won a gold medal as an equestrian at the 1972 Summer Olympics and a silver in 1988. Anne herself competed at the 1976 event. In 1974, Anne made world headlines when she, her husband, and others successfully fended off a kidnapping attempt.
