By Custom women can Choose to be addressed by their husbands name. Carla chooses to be addressed as both. But legally she is not. Legally on all documents she is dimply Bruni. As is any woman in France.



Napoleonic law still in place.


Excuse me but this is wrong I am French married and my name is legally my husband’s name

According to the French government, usage of the name of the spouse is authoraized on certain official documents, but it does not replace the legal name.

I would assume HRH Prince William Arthur Philip Louis, Duke of Cambridge. He doesn’t use a last name.
