20 Rules All Royal Family Members NEED TO FOLLOW From Birth
Why the Royal Family Don’t Use Their Last Name
As we’ve already said, members of the Royal Family aren’t obliged to use their last name, although in certain cases (like when studying at school) they still have to. However, even then they have quite a choice in the matter.
For example, Prince William and Prince Harry served in the Royal Army under the alias of Wales, because their father is the Prince of Wales. The Queen’s other grandchildren (the offspring of Princess Anne) have taken the last name of their father,Phillips. And yet another of Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughters, the daughter of Prince Edward, goes under the name of Windsor — without the "Mountbatten" addition.
It’s not hard to get hopelessly lost in all this diversity of names and titles! So it’s no surprise that today, like 100 years ago, the Royal Family still prefer to do without their last name when they can.
