The surname is Mountbatten-Windsor as of 1960. The House name remains as Windsor. But Charles should have a new start. Charles III of the House of Mountbatten - I like it. But I think they should never have changed it in the first place.

Not at all. It was as if George V was obliterating the history of the Empire. A House Name change now wouldn't be so bad. It's not been that long since the last. But it was as if the Royal Family were denying their roots and I didn't like that. It was pandering to the public and there was an air of "we better do as we're told" about it. Besides which, everyone knows what the real house name is anyway. I thought it was a terrible thing to do and George V (who I'm not a fan of) shouldn't have even considered it. I hope Charles will do the opposite and end the disaster that is the House of Windsor.

well I think there is something to the idea that something so quintessentially british as the royal family oughtn't have a name like "Saxe-Coburg-Gothe."

I dont think beatrixfan was suggesting that charles would even consider making such a change. he was merely dreaming about what his beloved saxe-coburg-gothes would do in a perfect world.

I think its funny that while the press just exaggerates everything about Charles, Diana, and Camilla, their relationships had normal problems like most people.

The number one complaint of single women around me is a steady boyfriend who's scared of the altar.

Sara, do you have anything other than a headline in that link? It isn't really all that useful an article as it stands; if you could find a link to the actual article rather than just the headline, it'd be helpful.

A name change would be nice, reverting back to their roots!:)

A name changes shows weakness and the ability not to deal and move on. I love the name Windsor, it is so Majestic and British. Mountbatten comes from a german name. The Windsors have its up and downs and it shouldnt be changed just because it had some downs. I agree that is was the right thing to do to change the name from Prince Alberts to Windsor. It made the family seem less german and much more british. I like the pic for Christmas. Very nice and royal. Perfect pic for the first year.

It's possible Charles III could propose the House of Mountbatten-Windsor to the Government, but I tend to think it will remain the House of Windsor. Mountbatten means even less than Windsor does in terms of a royal house name. At least Windsor is a place.

Well, the family is mostly German anyway, whether you call them Battenbergs, Witten, Coburg, Hanover, etc;, they make up the majority of the royal bloodline since 1714.
