I have mixed feelings about this thread. On the one hand it could turn into awesomeness via the example set by fusillade762. on the flip side, pics of carrot top could send this thread in the very wrong direction.

Harry's comment struck me as fabulously funny and indicative of a young man who's utterly comfortable in his own skin.  His actions during the incident and conduct afterward seriously up-ticks Harry's cool factor.  Besides, I adore gingers and am still pissed at my mother for not sharing even a single molecule of her own sparkling red hair and beautiful freckles with me.

Prince William angers bullying campaigners with ginger jibe
An anti-bullying charity has criticised Prince William for mocking Prince Harry over his ginger hair.
The Telegraph
7:00AM BST 19 Jun 2009

"The prince's comment was picked up on by a reporter who asked William 'did he just mention your baldness'.

To which William retorted: "It's pretty rich coming from a ginger."

William then back-tracked on camera, saying: "He's a good-looking ginger so it's alright.""

I think it's because he's always been in Prince William's shadow over in the UK. I don't think Americans care about primogeniture as much.

I don't think the Princes have last names, per se.  Tradition something something.  They use their father's title.  Maybe someone of the British persuasion can explain it better.

Well, yes, but, per the wikipedias: "With his rank obtained, he adopted the last name "Wales" in accordance with many centuries of royal tradition based on his father's title, Prince of Wales ".  I just don't remember the exact explanation.

House of Windsor. It's not a last name in the standard sense- they don't have one. His full name (sorry, style) is "His Royal Highness Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales", so they either go with Mountbatten-Windsor, Windsor, or Wales when they need to use something in lieu of a surname.

The official family name as decreed by the Queen is Mountbatten-Windsor. Each male member of the family goes by the name of his peerage when it is bestowed upon him which is why Charles' family are the Wales', Andrew's family are the York's, Eddie's family are the Wessex's. William's family are officially the Cambridge's now, since his peerage was bestowed on him just before his wedding. He still goes by William Wales in the military for the sake of continuity.

// yes I know way too much about this

He is Henry of the House of Windsor.  Windsor isn't a surname, like Smith would be.  Windsor is more of a designation of him belonging to a particular group (I realize it is functionally like a surname, but technically it is different - when your ancestors got supreme executive authority by murdering and raping anyone who got in their way, with God's support and blessing of course, the rules are more "rarified").  And nobility without titles themselves get to use variations of their parent('s/s') titles.  So, Harry can use Windsor, Wales, or any other title his father has (which is more than a couple).  If/when he gets titles of his own, Harry could also use them - William could do William Cambridge if he wanted, as he is now Duke of the same.  You might want to think of it as them having a portfolio of legal aliases, and they can choose from the ones they have as they wish.

Only for those who are not in the direct line of succession - and even that is dubiously legal.  Not in the sense of "is it legal or not?", but in the sense of "what in the fark does it even mean?"  It would be like her saying "all potatoes shall be known on the voting rolls as Fancy Eddie" - can you mandate a potato's legal name if it can't vote?

Actually, she decreed it for herself, her husband and her future children in 1960. There was no way she was going to take her husband's name (Mountbatten) outright so she hyphenated.

The Royal Family didn't used to have a surname but that changed in 1917 when George V specifically adopted Windsor, not only as the name of the 'House' or dynasty, but also as the surname of his family.

It was declared that The Queen's descendants, other than those with the style of Royal Highness and the title of Prince/Princess, or female descendants who marry, would carry the name of Mountbatten-Windsor.

For the most part, members of the Royal Family who are entitled to the style and dignity of HRH Prince or Princess do not need a surname, but if at any time any of them do need a surname (such as upon marriage), that surname is Mountbatten-Windsor.

spacemanjones: So who made their family the royals anyway and where does all there cash come from?


The English Monarchy rose out of the system of nobles, more or less. Kind of a first among equals kind of deal, but the king rode around from village to village to literally hold court, dealing with matters that the populace didn't think were adequately handled by the local lord- basically serving as an appeals court. Of course, that also meant that they were the only ones who could address any of the wrongs imposed on the people by the lords, who where often petty and oppressive. As such, the King engendered loyalty among the commoners, who would provide him with forces for defense should a lord or two get fed up with the king and take up arms against him. Eventually, since the king couldn't be everywhere, a system of judges, under the control of the king, was set up, and they were given autonomy to develop a body of equitable rules that became the English Common Law, creating a system of courts through which the king could enforce his law. The local Lords and nobles did still have a great deal of control over their local domains, however, and if the king got out of hand, the nobles would be able to raise armies in favor of a beneficent Lord to oppose a tyrannical King. The Nobles and the Monarch acted as checks on each others power, keeping the other party from becoming too tyrannical. Eventually, the Lords decided that they wanted a formal institutional structure with which to check the King, and forced the King to sign a document giving power to a Parliament. Things grew increasingly formalized and Democratic from there, and with King George III's descent into mental illness, the Parliament eventually took control of all political decision making, leaving the monarch in the primarily ceremonial role they have today.

As for the money, it comes from a stipend from the British Government, in an arrangement where the monarch agrees to turn over all revenue from a massive portfolio of land known as the Crown Estates, in return. It is a very, very good deal for the British Government as is, the royals get something like a quarter of what that land generates right now. Of course, if you dissolve the monarchy, that all belongs to Elizabeth Windsor, fabulously wealthy private citizen. They're probably also pretty well invested. Also, I hear the Queen bets like a sailor on horses.

\Or were you not expecting a serious answer?
\\Could give you the spiel on the benefits of separating the Head of State and Head of Government roles, too.

The English monarchy came about because they were the best at kicking ass. Think of Dark ages England as a bunch of red Indian tribes only with leftover stone buildings and better technology from the Romans. The King was the one that could rally up enough of the other tribes and kill off anyone who said boo, which he did with seasonal frequency. The rest of the year, he rode around kicking ass, taking names and collecting taxes. Later on they built boats and exported the system, which worked out pretty good for them.

At that is the whole story until about the end of World War i
