You shouldn't confuse legal name and nobility titles.

I don't, but many, many, many people entering names and titles in database systems from previous jobs did. And not just nobility titles, but also acacdemic titles, job descriptions ("Accessor des Bergfachs" is my favorite one - I have no clue what that job is, except that it has something to do with mining). I was really happy not to find "cook" and "gardener" as titles ...

I'm pretty sure I read once, that he signed his marriage papers with Diana simply as "Charles Mountbatten-Windsor".

Sounds plausible. The fully "decorated" name with all titles and middle names would probably fill half a page and take half an hour to write down.


Today I will gladly share my knowledge and experience, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so". ;-)

    Much longer I'd say ... :)

    From "The Madness of King George (1994)"

    • Prince of Wales: (pointing to medal) What's that one?
    • Duke of York: Oh, I found out the other day that I'm Bishop of Osnabruck ...
    • (pause)
    • Duke of York: Amazing what one is, really.
