What will the royal baby’s last name be?
Prince William and Kate have three choices for their child’s surname.

Mountbatten-Windsor: This surname was adopted in 1960 for all of the queen’s children. According to E! Online, the name combines Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip’s family name (Mountbatten) with Windsor, the family name adopted by King George V in 1917.
