Do you feel this was justified given the times? Do you think Elizabeth II and her descendants should hold so steadfast to this name?
Mountbatten is a last name changed in the same 1917 period as well. Should Prince Philip be upset that his name of Mountbatten should be ignored by the Earl and Countess of Wessex who chose for Lady Louise (who's name is legally Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor) to be known as Lady Louise Windsor? Remember to consider that Prince Philip's FATHER'S last name was NOT Mountbatten and more along the lines of Oldenburg (as he is from the Danish line of the Greek Royal Family).
