    Windsor, isn't it?

      I believe the royal surname is a combination of the Queen and Prince Phillip's names- Mountbatten-Windsor.

    His military uniform name tag reads "Wales."

      That's because he's a "Prince of Wales", isn't it?

        Not yet, his father is still the Prince of Wales. He is now the Duke of Cambridge.

          Ah!  Now that you mention I did hear them announce excactly "prince of what" this morning (but I forgot  smile  ).  (Hey - 4:00 in the morning, and dark outside, is way too early to start re-hashing the whole Royal Weddings and "who's duchess or prince or what" thing, going back to Charles and Diana's wedding.   smile )

    Out of curiosity, I just checked (because I've always heard them referred to as "The Windsor's".  Anyway, here's the actual "dirt" on the matter   smile  )  :

      Well, learn something new every day, I guess  smile  (although I can't say I'm a big fan of all the name-switcheroos they apparently do.   lol  )

    I thought the family was known as the House of Windsor which would make Windsor their last name. hmm

    I thought this guy is called 'William Arthur Philip Louis'.

  9. 2uesday profile image81
    2uesdayposted 7 years ago

    He is William Arthur Philip Louis Windsor or William Arthur Philip Louis Mountbatten-Windsor.

    The family changed its name to Windsor in 1917 as the name they had sounded too Germanic at the time of the First World War.

    So then what is Kate Middleton's new last name? Is she getting one?
    And yeah. What is up with any wedding where they don't say, "You may now kiss the bride"?
    Is this a Church of England thing?
    A royals thing?
    Was that extra kiss on the balcony supposed to make up for no kiss in the cathedral?
    Soooo weird (from this American commoner's POV)

    1. rebekahELLE profile image88
      rebekahELLEposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      She will carry his surname also, Mountbatten-Windsor.

      The ceremony was beautiful, and yet so very solemn. I loved the boys choir, they gave such an ethereal air inside the Abbey.

    2. Lisa HW profile image71
      Lisa HWposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      What I heard was that the Church of England is similar in a lot of ways to Episcopalian in the US (which is kind Protestant but not as difference from Catholic  as other Protestant churches are...

      Anyway, my sister and I were talking (both married in a Catholic church), and neither the priest at her wedding, nor at mine, even said, "You may kiss the bride," - so neither of us did the "kiss-the-bride" thing at the service either.  Point is:  I think it may be a church thing.  lol

        Mighty Momposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        Hmmmm. Could well be.
        When hubby and I got married by his family's Lutheran pastor he most definitely said to kiss the bride. And hubby grabbed me and planted a big long smackeroo on me.
        And his mom (who was 83 at the time) called out "That's enough!"
        Too funny.

          It's royal protocol - the first public kiss is on the balcony at Buckingham Palace, and even that didn't happen before Charles and DI

    3. rontlog profile image84
      rontlogposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      I don't think it is a church thing, at the last few Church of England weddings I have been to, the vicar always says I now pronounce you man and wife, you may now kiss the bride.

      For William and Kate, I think they saved their first married kiss for the balcony for all the crowds outside to see.

      You can't exactly have a passionate kiss in a cathederal.

      Their second kiss was lovely - aahhh!

    I have only seen bits of the whole thing, but every female I know sat up all night and watched the whole boring process.

    This morning they are all talking about the dress in this household. The royal couple seem like nice people, I hope they're happy but to be honest I don't give a rats about watching the pomp and ceremony of the monarchs.

    They all seem to be bought up in a human vacuum in that royal family, so I don't expect too much of them.
