Can people who become king change their name still? like how the Pope does.

I think they can, Edward VIII was christened Albert, or Bertie.

Edward VIII's name was Edward Albert Christian George Andrew Patrick David (the last four names are the names of the patron saints of England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales).

Interesting how many more names he had than Prince John, his youngest brother.

The three middle sons had four names each, but poor Prince John only had three. I suppose it was a way of letting people know that he was less important in the grand scheme of things or something.

Maybe they just ran out of ideas?

The Queen has three names, but her sister had only two.
I think that all the Queen's children have fourn names.
(And poor Philip has only one. I wonder if he's the only royal with one name).

Beatrice and Eugenie also only have three names. They are Beatrice Elizabeth Mary and Eugenie Victoria Helena.

"In 1917 he was sent, with a nanny and male attendants, to Wood Farm on the Sandringham estate, and did not ever see his parents again."

If this is true, I think that is very sad. His parents could have visited him even if he was in isolation. Even his brothers could have. This whole story is just very sad indeed.:(

I actually really don't know. I was just browsing through this thread and on the first page there was an excerpt that said this. I certainly hope that's not true.

The story of Prince John's illness and isolation touched me. At the time, so little was known about epilsey (sp). I was speaking with a friend a week ago about his nephew (who is bi polar) and I was just commenting on what would happened to him if he was born years ago. The medical advances of certain conditions/diseases are such a blessing.

Princess Mary, unless I am mistaken, became Countess of Harewood, not Duchess of Fife.

Yes, Louise, Princess Royal, eldest daughter of Edward VII, became the 1st Duchess of Fife.

Sorry - realised after I posted that someone else had already made this point earlier in the thread.

I've split out the posts which were about the TV miniseries "The Lost Prince" and moved them to the Library as a separate thread, which can be found here.
