 Guardian | Why Chirac won't be facing his Waterloo   (Site not responding. Last check: )
If Prince Andrew, say, decides to call himself Windsor, then, strictly speaking, he will be taking his mother's maiden name and thus making himself illegitimate, which would be bad.
He can't, however, call himself Mountbatten like his dad because that was the maiden name of Prince Philip's mother, not his father, Prince Andrew of Greece, who did not have a surname.
In fact, to find a legitimate surname for the poor Duke of York you have to go back to the paternal grandfather of Prince Andrew of Greece, who was King Christian IX of Denmark, of the House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Beck-Glucksburg, which is a fine name, but hell to fit on a credit card.
