Only in Quebec, population 7 millions, the estimate is about
500,000 to 1 million with the current known lines. And this
will probably grow to 3 millions with current works. You can
probably link any one of French stock (6 millions) to someone
claiming nobility. And after the conquest of 1763, many
people with close links to high nobility went back to France
(the militaries follow the army).
You can probably extend that to USA to reach maybe 100 millions
of people likely with a royal line.
By the way, earth population is about 7 billions, not 4.
