From Wikipedia:
As a member of the royal family entitled to be called "His Royal Highness", William formally has no surname, but when one is used, it is Mountbatten-Windsor (or colloquially his territorial designation of Cambridge; prior to his marriage, his father's, Wales); according to letters patent of February 1960, his House and Family Name is Windsor.

Until 1917 it was Gotha-Saxe-Coberg, then, because of the war,  the King decreed the following:

Now,  therefore, We, out of Our Royal Will and Authority, do hereby declare and announce that as from the date of this Our Royal Proclamation Our House and Family shall be styled and known as the House and Family of Windsor, and that all the descendants in the male line of Our said Grandmother Queen Victoria who are subjects of these Realms, other than female descendants who may marry or may have married, shall bear the said Name of Windsor...[1]

The children of Queen Elizabeth are Mountbatten-Windsor.

Lord Mountbatten's Father  was the one that changed it. He was a big wig in the Admiralty during WW1. He changed the name to quell loyalty to England rumors and to sound more British. I believe The Mountbattens were cousins to Wilhelm of Germany as was Elizabeth or Victoria.......IIRC

Most of the European Royal Families were related in one way or another Tzar Nicholas was Wilhelms uncle or Cousin or some shit.
Link Posted: 4/30/2011 5:43:24 AM EDT
It's a good thing the Queen didn't take her husband's family name, he was born Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark and his family name at birth was Slesvig-Holsten-Sønderborg-Lyksborg (Danish) and/or Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg (German).






After WW2 and before getting engaged to (then) Princess Elizabeth he renounced his foreign titles and adopted the surname Mountbatten (from his maternal grandmother).







It is interesting how effectively Queen Victoria got her children married into most of the European Royal Families - Philip was a prince of both Denmark and Greece and his maternal grandmother Princess Victoria of Hesse and by Rhine was a granddaughter of Queen Victoria (she married a German prince who served in the British Royal Navy and was First Sea Lord of the navy before WW1). Princess Victoria's sister married Tsar Nicholas II of Russia and was murdered by the bolsheviks in 1918. Kaiser Wilhelm II who lead Germany into WW1 was a grandson of Queen Victoria and therefore a cousin of the British King.







Philip is the the grandson of King George I of Greece, great grandson of King Christian IX of Denmark,  the great great grandson of Tsar Nicholas I of Russia, and the great great great grandson of King Frederik Wilhelm III of Prussia.

As I understand it, they don't have a surname. They do have a 'house' name which is the closest thing to it. And that name is Windsor, I believe.

Was from huge German royalty but changed their names during WWI when it wasn't exactly stylish to have a German name in England.

The only reason his loyalty was even questioned and the names of the royals  and nobles became an issue is because by the time the war started British nationalism had run rampant to the point that anything German was being renamed or destroyed.  Nationalism does tend to be an ugly affair and unfortunately it can really sweep out of controul and take anyone who does not conform with it.  That was the reality these people faced.  There was nothing rational about the public mindset so those with German names did what they felt they had to do to prevent any sort of reprisals, suspicions, and the like.

It was probably due to the fact that English peoples and well all the other poor bastards in Europe were bleeding themselves dry over what was a familial dispute over land and power between the royals cousins. Simplistic, but to the families of the dead it probably sounded worse.
