4. The Ginger Kid aka Prince Harry has a given name of Henry Charles Albert David. But everyone calls him Harry. He doesn't look like a Hank, which is often the nickname of dudes named Henry. Are we right or are we right?
5. Billy and Kate are reportedly 12th cousins, once removed, whatever that means. She actually has ties to some famous Americans. A report published by the New England Historic Genealogical Society in Boston traced Kate's lineage, reporting that she is eighth cousins, seven times removed, with George Washington. She is also a cousin of Francis Scott Key, who penned "The Star-Spangled Banner" and there is also some sort of tie to Ellen DeGeneres. No, really. So Kate is firmly Team America in some ways. Go ahead, royal watchers -- lay claim.
6. What in the hell is their last name? Do they actually have one? Well, yes, actually. The Queen -- can we call her "Betsy" or "Beth," even? -- declared her descendants would have "Mountbatten-Windsor" as their surname, if needed. "Mountbatten" is Philip's surname. Anyone whose style is "HRH (His or Her Royal Highness) Prince or Princess" does not require a surname, but they can use Mountbatten-Windsor if needed. Mostly, however, royals are known by their Royal house.
7. Prince William has enjoyed a plethora of interesting nicknames, among them Big Willie, P.Willie, Wills, Billy, Wombat, Prince of Wails, and His Naughtiness. Big Willie? Is someone trying to tell us something about the, er, crown jewels? And Wombat? Oh boy! His real name, though, is Prince William Arthur Philip Louis. And he is the Duke of Cambridge. SO. MANY. NAMES.
8. Big Willie -- we can use his nicknames if we want-- has a self-proclaimed, Harry Potter-like scar on his forehead? What happened? He was hit with a golf club as a child. OUCH! It was a total accident, caused by a friend. Oopsie! Of the wound, the Prince said, "That was for my Harry Potter scar, as I call it, just here. I call it that because it glows sometimes and some people notice it - other times they don't notice it at all." It glows in the dark? What's in his blood, besides the royal DNA? We can't even...
9. "Middleton" is no longer Kate's surname. She is now "Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge." And for those wondering, "Will Kate ever be Queen?" Well, it's tricky. She will be a "Queen Consort" when William inherits the throne from his father, Prince Charles. A Queen Consort is the wife of a King.
