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.
Why do you think it shows weakness and lacking in the ability to move on? A lot of women change their name when they marry but, in the UK a lot don't. Then you have the ones that just fancy a change.
If he did change the name it would be eccentrically British.:)

I think changing thier last name to escape from the past and start new shows weakness and not being able to deal with the past. There is more to the windsors than the scandols. They should keep it and let it grow and add to its history. Not run away and change when things go wrong.

Why may i ask would it be eccentrically British? I have never thought of my country as eccentric. Usually Britain is thought of as rigidly traditional and has a strong fear over any changes. I would be horrified if the house name changed to Mountbatten, Windsor is a far more historic name, fits in with the name of Windsor castle very nicely and in my opinion is far more "royal" than Mountbatten. And if i must be honest i think Windsor sounds much nicer.

Amy - I don't agree. Mountbatten sounds far more regal than Windsor and the Windsor Castle coincidence appears tacky and cheap. I prefer Mountbatten. But I'd prefer Saxe-Coburg-Gotha-Schweslig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glucksburg!

Now that's a mouthful! I do hear your opinion but i still feel the Windsor name should stay.

From what I see you are a bit eccentric. Not crazy, weird, showy eccentric but a calm low key eccentric.

I'm not eccentric. At least I don't think I am. But we're well known as a nation as being either eccentrics or old brigadiers in bowler hats who shout 'Old Chap' as a form of tourettes.

I had a very traditional, stiff upper lip, duty filled upbringing but I am still an eccentric. Our housekeeper is twice as bad!:)

We had a housekeeper who used to mutter 'dust dust dust' under her breath as she did everything. Now there was an eccentric!

I don't shout 'old chap'.:) I've just been told that I do tend to say 'old bean'

lol. Nor do I. But I do call everyone 'darling', 'dear', 'ducky', 'sweetie' or 'luvvie'. I can't be bothered to learn names. I'm dreading Christmas.

is a tradition, with diana was the same. I think exactly the same about charles and camilla. Nonthing can change my feeling about them, is my personal opinion later 8 years of investigation.
I know about the christmas card when see the wedding's photo, was very clear in that moment that that will be the christmas card.

They probably chose this pic as the Christmas card because it presents the whole "blended" family celebrating a very significant event in their lives. It shows the world they are a unit, and Charles is showing off his "darling wife", and making a statement at the same time. Sometimes it pays off to make a stand, and declare something (or someone!) "non-negotiable."
