Well, the royals do the autograph thing once in a blue moon. Charles & Camilla everyone and then they will sign someone's basketball, t-shirt or whatever. Diana used to do it once in awhile, especially when it came to children.

Catherine Wales...I don't think she gets to have that name, does she? I noticed that their court petition in France read Mrs. Katherine Middleton and Mr. William Mountbatten-Wales...weird.

I once watched footage of William attending a film premiere where I heard him say to the crowd, shouting for his autograph, that he was sorry but "no autographs". Most people were OK with that but I laughed when a dude who had his hand outstretched with pen and paper, seemed to be frozen with a very offended expression on his face. He was no kid, probably in his 30s but clearly the news was a shock to him.

I think there was a reason why the French used their maiden names. William is no longer Prince William of Wales. Now it's TRH The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge.

Catherine Wales is what she called herself inside the Surf Shop in Wales. The poor clerk did not recognize her at all - and asked her for her name for the sales ticket. That was her reply.

Ooops my bad - it was Mrs. Cambridge. Kate Middleton: 'Yes I'm Mrs Cambridge' Duchess goes unrecognised in Welsh watersports store | Mail Online

Technically, her last name (when needed) would be Mountbatten-Windsor. If she is able to retain her last name, though, in combination with her married name (as we can in the U.S.), she would be Mrs. Catherine Middleton Mountbatten-Windsor. When in combination with her husband, she would be as above. (I'm pretty sure.) But didn't she use the last name "Cambridge" several months ago in a small shop in Anglesey?

Yeah, the royals only do signatures on official and other special occasions.

Mountbatten-Wales? I thought Charles and descendants last name would remain Windsor and the Queen others children would be Mountbatten-Windsor?

IIRC, she told the clerk her name was Mrs. Cambridge. Must have made her feel good that there are some places she can go where she's not fawned all over and made a fuss of.

It's my understanding that the Queen's children/grandchildren use the surname Mountbatten- Windsor when a surname is needed (like school or work etc), but sometimes they use their titles as their surnames, for example, when he was working in showbiz, Prince Edward used the name 'Edward Wessex.' I've never heard of the surname 'Mountbatten- Wales' before, it sounds quite nice, though.

Zara and Peter Philips are the Queen's only grandchildren who don't hold the surname Mountbatten- Windsor because their father's surname is different (Philips), and we usually use our father's surname as our surname.

This is incorrect. Wales does not appear in her name at all, as it is not the territorial designation associated with her husband's ducal title. If William had no title, his last name as a male line descendant of Elizabeth and Phillip would be Mountbatten-Windsor.

However, as he was given a dukedom on his wedding day, the Cambridges can use that as a last name where one is necessary.

Prince William used Wales as his last name before he became Duke of Cambridge, though for all intents and purposes, he has no legal last name.

No! you are wrong

She called herself Mrs Cambridge inside the Surf Shop in Wales, not Catherine Wales.

Actually it read, William Arthur Philip Louis Mountbatten-Windsor and Catherine Elizabeth Middleton. No Wales in sight.

I think it may take some time for everyone to catch on that William is no longer Prince William of Wales because he now have his own Dukedom. Catherine is now Mrs. Cambridge not Mrs. Catherine Wales.

True, Catherine is now officially a Windsor.

I know she's an HRH but I'm just pointing out that she the Mrs Cambridge now. William stopped being Prince William of Wales on April 29th 2011. His full title is now 'His Royal Highness Prince William Arthur Philip Louis, Duke of Cambridge, Earl of Strathearn, Baron Carrickfergus.'

He is, in the fact he's the son of the Prince of Wales, but he is not Prince William of Wales anymore he is The Duke of Cambridge. Wales is nowhere in his title since he married nor will it be unless he becomes Prince of Wales.
