On Prince Charles marriage certificate, he is listed as His Royal Highness Prince Charles Philip Arthur George, The Prince of Wales, but he just signed it Charles.

Documents Signatures: The Royals just sign their first names. The Queen signs Elizabeth R.

William used William Wales for school, St Andrews and in the Military. Both Wills and Harry's flight suits are marked Wales. During the palace wedding lunch, Wills introduced Kate as Mrs Wales so I would imagine if they are at a RAF function where Wills is in his Flight Lieutant William Wales role (not HRH Duke of Cambridge) Kate would be Mrs William Wales.

As for her drivers license, it probably still says Catherine Elizabeth Middleton if she still had a couple years left on it why go thru the hassle of changing it if the British version of the DMV are anything like the horrible DMVs in America.

I believe the 'R' stands for 'Regina'.

Its Regina, the latin word for Queen.

eg Juan Carlos of Spain will sign "Juan Carlos R" with R standing for Rex, latin word for King.

I am not sure this is the right place for this. Please feel free to move it if necessary.

Kate and William's Affection

A "veteran courtier" is mentioned in this article. What exactly is a courtier? Is it someone who works for the royal family or someone who exists in their social sphere so to speak?

Thanks in advance.

Thank you Baroness. I had read that but wasn't certain it still pertained to the present time.

Well, I guess the modern courtier in today's royal courts performs updated functions of a role that goes back to antiquated times.

While they were dating William and Kate avoided public displays of the affection for the most part. You got the rare hug and kiss on the slopes or a polo match via the paparazzi. Remember what raise the alarm with the press before the engagment was announced - they attended a wedding together not arriving separately as the normally did. Since then, we get them touching each other all the time. It isn't over the top but hands on the back, or the knee, etc. Its nice to see.

I wish William & Kate all the best, I really do. I'm jealous to the core, but I wish them the best. However, I do get irritated by people comparing William and Charles as husbands. It is much easier to be a supportive spouse to someone who is healthy and well vs. otherwise. That's all I wanted to say.

I think it's the subtlety of their displays of affection that makes the acts endearing. I'm a firm believer in 'less is more' approach in this case, because in love, it's the little gestures that are so telling. The smiles and looks that pass between them say more than a fancy love poem or an expensive gift. I hope that they keep this aspect of their relationship for the rest of their lives.

They, like Victoria and Daniel, spent 10 or so years not touching or even letting their eyes meet in public. Now they are married they can give a loving look or touch without being OTT and without hitting the front pages!
