Re: [acmold] HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh or Reply Privately

How many people can claim they are "English" or "British" going back through 3,4 or 5 generations. The Queen had a German Grandmother and a German Great Great Grandfather. Most of the Royal families of Europe have inter married over the years so all have numerous ancestors from other countries. They may have changed their name during the 1st World War but in theory when she married Prince Phillip that really became irrelevant as she could have come Mrs Mountbatten. If she is German what is Bonkers Boris that well known American passport holder. I'm part Scottish my Grandfather was born Aberdeen, I was born in Headington and my Grandfather was born in Abingdon Gaol, also all totally irrelevant unless Scotland leave the UK.

Queen Victoria was German & married her German cousin Albert. Her son Edward VII married Alexandra who was from a Dano-German family. There son George V married Mary who was from an Austro-German family. Obviously you get to George VI who married Elizabeth who was Scottish. As for Mountbatten, that's another Anglicised German name 'Battenberg' that was changed during WW1.
