Royal family full names and titles: Do the Royal family have a last name?

1506

The Royal family’s naming practice can be a bit of a mouthful to process with multiple middle names and long titles. So what are the full names and titles of members of the Royal family?

The Royal family’s names and titles are quite a mouthful. And while members of the family rarely use a last name, when needed they can use Mountbatten-Windsor. Queen Elizabeth II was born of the Royal House of Windsor, which makes her last name Windsor. However, when she married Prince Philip in 1947, he carried the name Mountbatten. In 1960, the couple decided they would like their own direct descendants to be distinguished from the rest of the Royal Family and introduced Mountbatten-Windsor which will continue to be the Royal Family’s personal last name unless Prince Charles decides differently when he becomes King.
