TapHappy Birthday Windsor

Apparently it is 90 years today since the royal family changed their surname to Windsor. It was done in the middle of WW1 because the old name sounded too German.

EIIRAccording to an on-the-street radio reporter survey this morning (in Newcastle) one person thought the Queen’s surname was Rex. Her initials are on the post boxes aren’t they?

After stopping the car and drying my eyes, there was a follow up item—someone had emailed in and said that the Kaiser had invited King George and Queen Mary to a celebratory performance of William Shakespeare’s “Merry Wives of Saxe-Coberg-Gotha.”
