appearance of the royal baby. So they're the ones who buy People magazine!

Any bets on the name? I'm going with Aidan, Brayden, Caden or Jayden. I'm not sure how they'll decide.

They do not have a surname as part of their legal names, but they are entitled to the use of other surnames. Legally the direct descendants of Queen Elizabeth II can use "Windsor." Others in the family not descended from the Queen can use "Mountbatten-Windsor." Or Saxe-Coburg, I think. However, many of the people entitled to use "Windsor" choose to use "Muntbatten-Windsor" out of respect for Prince Philip.

Also, they can use placeholder surnames. Prince Harry uses "Wales."


Of course, Mountbatten isn't his family's real name either. *

Sort of a window into an entirely different world.

Despite the Norman Conquest, the Glorious Revolution, and the Acts of Settlement, Elizbeth II is a direct descendant of King Alfred the Great (although not a direct patrilineal descendant, somewhat obviously.)

Except Carole Middleton is way better at it. Am I wrong? You know Kris Kardashian is champing at the bit for Kanye to marry Kim and give that roving clan of hucksters some legitimacy.

I want to hear more about Kate's (cough, Catharine's) dodgy Uncle Gary.


That is essentially my take, too.

Although for some reason I have far less scorn for the Middleton offspring than the Kardashians. They are less crass about the self promotion and seem less complicit, I guess. And no sex tapes, obviously. We await to see Pippa's eventual prey. She will likely get the better end of the deal - she'll marry the money and lifestyle without the gilded cage that her sister chose.


Pippa could lock down a Downton Abbey type arrangement

They are part of our history and culture and the anti-Royal leanings of my youth are long gone. It's the obsessive media prattling that annoys me. I'm happy they had a healthy baby, they seem like a sweet couple and at least I won't have to pretend to like a silly made-up name.

What is the purpose of the custom of waiting on the name?
by SavageDragon  (2013-07-23 14:18:07)     cannot delete  |  Edit  |  Return to Board  |  Ignore Poster   |   Highlight Poster  |   Reply to Post

Is there a royal genealogist frantically cross-checking every possible name to make sure it isn't associated with any unsavo(u)ry character? Or taking offers from the highest bidder (link)?

I guess I just don't get the tradition on waiting to announce the name. Particularly when it seems as though it's an easier process when you get to pick 3-8 of them, rather than 1 or 2.


Is it at all similar to the devout jews who have a tradiiton

"Albert Victor's intellect, sexuality and sanity have been the subject of much speculation. Rumours linked him with the Cleveland Street scandal, which involved a homosexual brothel, but there is no conclusive evidence verifying or disproving the rumours or his sexual orientation. Some authors have argued that he was the serial killer known as Jack the Ripper; however, contemporary documents show that Albert Victor could not have been in London at the time of the murders, and the claim is widely dismissed."
