Stanczyk muses on the notion, does the British Royal Family need  a court jester ?   Perhaps, Harry would not want a competitor. Did you notice that the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge had a baby by any chance ? The Internet and CATV seems to have invested some bandwidth to this little story.

Here is the family tree from King George VI, through his daughter, HRH Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles (of Wales), Prince William (of Cambridge) and the latest addition, Prince George Alexander Louis.

Did you know that the “royals” get to pick their last name ? If you look closely at the tree you will see a variety of last names. We still do not know the new prince’s last name. His father Prince William’s name is at present, William Wales. So the new prince could be George Cambridge (or Windsor or Tudor or Mountbatten or Wales etc.). We are still waiting on the Duke & Duchess for the full name. By the way, I notice only three given names. I believe there may yet be a fourth  given name as well as the surname. I also do not think he can be Prince … of Cambridge, since that is his father. Is it not true that each prince must have their own principality?

By the way, the baby prince might not be King George VII. The young prince’s great-great grandfather became George VI at coronation. King George VI ‘s  birth name was:  Albert Frederick Arthur George. So George was his fourth given name. Might the baby be King Louis ?  That name seems to be a bit too French for the Britains to accept.

Royal Genealogy – so many traditional formalities. Just Fascinating.

Do any of you, my regal readers, have any Polish Royal Blood in your family tree? Any Szlachta out there?

Email me this poor jester (without a court) !
