Prince William & Kate's Last Name: Mountbatten-Windsor

Prince William & Kate's Last Name: Mountbatten-Windsor

Now that Prince William and Kate Middleton are married, some are wondering their last name.

Like other descendants of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, William's surname is Mountbatten-Windsor, and it will be Kate's too by marriage.

As explained by the official British royal website, the Queen's descendants carry the name Mountbatten, as well as the royal surname Windsor, to reflect her husband Prince Philip's surname.

The royal website explains further that the surnames are not always used, only when they are formally needed, such as the case of marriage.

While Prince William will be recorded as a Mountbatten-Windsor in the marriage registry today, he may choose a new name at a later point, specifically if and when he becomes king. As explained here, "Since a royal proclamation is not binding on succeeding rulers, King William could decide to add a name or two."

Prince William and Kate, who will go by the name of Catherine, also inherited the titles Duke and Duchess of Cambridge upon their marriage today.

Zooming The Everyday Life - Things You'd Rather Not Knowing

Remember all those movies and cartoons where people are shrunk and then live great adventures crossing the carpet in the room, bathing in the kitchen sink, flying on paper airplanes? Oh, good memories. So much fun.

Unfortunately for us who ever wished to shrunk so can ride the back of a fly didn’t know that only about 5% of what was shown on tv were true, and the other 95% was covered with censorship.  

If we shrink, what we will find are not cute animals making funny dances, but a lot of angry-faced and weird-boded animals wanting to take the crap hell out of you, literally. You see, there is this vast and diverse world, more than ours that just because we don’t see doesn’t exist. A world within our world, a world that covers our own world, a world that exists since before ours. We should have come in peace. This is so vast that it literally send Adam and Eve take “up yours”.

We really should have come in peace.
