Prince William and Prince Harry Almost Went By Very Different Names
Over the course of their difficult marriage, Charles and Diana had many arguments, but one
During an interview for Andrew Morton's controversial book Diana: Her True Story, which came out in 1992, Diana revealed that she chose her sons' first names.
"I chose William and Harry, but Charles did the rest," she said. "He wanted Albert and Arthur, and I said no. Too old!"
So, William and Harry have their father to thank for their many middle names, and of course, their rarely used last name, Mountbatten-Windsor.
But if he's been longing for an old-fashioned name for his whole life, William can pick something a bit more stodgy for his regnal name once he becomes king.
