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?
- Kate and William make 'deliberate move' to turn spotlight on George, Charlotte & Louis
- Prince George 'to make a very good king' thanks to Prince William and Kate training
- Kate 'pillar of strength' for William as he faced 'a really hard time with his brother'
- Kate Middleton shows off new £9,000 diamond necklace in anniversary portrait with William
- Kate Middleton gives 'hidden nod' to Princess Diana with 'timeless' fashion choices
- Kate and Prince William ignore Royal Family tradition to be closer to their children
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.
