Can Prince Williams kids become queen?

It is possible. Currently, Prince Charles is first in line for the throne, then Prince William, then Prince Harry. But any of William's children, male or female, will be closer to the throne than Harry. So while it seems even William is a long way away from taking the throne, any children he has will be next in line (a daughter could always lose her place to a newly born male sibling, due to the male bias of the system).

After Prince William who will be next on the throne?

Prince William is second in line to the throne, after his father, Prince Charles. Third in line is William's brother, Prince Henry. However, it is unlikely that Henry will become King because William's children will come before Henry in the line of succession: first the male children, oldest to youngest; followed by the female children, oldest to youngest. Unless William passes away with no children (and assuming his wife is not pregnant with the heir, in which case the heir would be king/queen and a regent would reign for him/her until he/she comes of age) the next on the throne after William will be William's eldest son, or his eldest daughter if he has no sons. See the related question link below.

Why aren't prince Andrew and prince edward in line for the throne of England?

They are in line, theyre just in a position where they can be pushed back due to primogeniture. Currently, Prince Andrew is 4th in line, Edward is 7th. The Queen's eldest son is first in line to the throne, Prince Charles. In 1980, Prince Andrew would have been second, as her next eldest son. However Prince Charles himself had a son in 1982, and another in 1984 (William and Harry) and these go before their father's siblings in the line of succession. In the same way, Andrew's own daughters, Beatrice and Eugenie, pushed his younger brother Edward back, and in turn, if Prince William and Catherine Middleton have a child, this child will be next in line after William, before his brother Harry.

Because Charles was first in line to throne and therefore Prince of Wales when he married Diana. She then became The Princess of Wales upon marriage. William is second in line to the throne and not The Prince of Wales (yet). He was created the Duke of Cambridge upon his wedding day and so Kate became The Duchess of Cambridge. She is however also "Princess William" just as a married woman can be Mrs John Smith. When Charles is King, William will become Prince of Wales and Kate Princess of Wales.
