Some more interesting facts about the Royal Family:
Though the family doesn't often use a surname, any descendant of Queen Elizabeth II "other than those with the title of Royal Highness and the title of Prince/Princess, or female descendants who marry" has the last name Mountbatten-Windsor.
Queen Elizabeth married her third cousin. She and her husband, Prince Philip, share the same great-great-grandparents, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.
Queen Elizabeth celebrates her birthday twice! Her birthday is celebrated on both April 21 — the day of her 1926 birth — and an "official birthday," which usually takes place in either May or June and is paired with the annual Trooping the Colour ceremony.
Prince Charles met Princess Diana when she was 16-years-old. The future King was dating Diana's older sister Lady Sarah when the two met in the late 1970s.
Prince Harry's real name is Henry. His full name is Henry Charles Albert David Mountbatten-Windsor — Harry is just a nickname!
The Middleton Family used to live in Jordan. Kate's family moved to the Middle Eastern country for two years in the mid-1980s for her father's work. Speaking of names, my maiden name was Kathryn Middleton. Hmmm, I wonder the relation!
Kate Middleton won't be the first Queen Catherine. If she becomes queen, she will be England's sixth Queen Catherine.
Kate Middleton has a degree in art history. She is the UK's first royal bride to have a university degree! Kate graduated from Scotland's University of St. Andrews — where she first met her future husband, Prince William has a Scottish Master of Arts degree.
William enrolled at St. Andrew's under the name William Wales in 2001. His Scottish Master of Arts degree with upper second-class honors in geography is the highest degree ever obtained by an heir to the British throne!
