There was something, too, about the Mountbatten-Windsor name in the paper. It is the formal name for those not likely to make it to the throne. The Queen decided it quite a long time ago apparently. Was it something to do with distancing the royals from some of their ancestors?
|charlieivan||From the way they have shown all the baby's names it would seem that the surname is Mountbatten-Windsor and not just plain Windsor. How do the royals manage to alter their names so easily? William and Harry had the surname Wales not so long ago when they were serving in the army.|
I think Archie is a diminutive ( I think that’s the right word if not I dare say there will be a rush to correct me )
In my grandsons case it’s a diminutive of Archer
Which is doubt a diminutive of Arthur too

There are rumours that it was a hospital birth after all?
