That's Tyrion Khaleesi Joffrey Windsor, peasant.

(William Windsor : Duke of Cambridge :: Barack Obama : President of the United States of America.)

No less an expert than the internet assures me they're calling him "Baby Cambridge" and that they take the last name of their titles or some such. Supposedly, the prince was "Lt. Wales" when he had the boots and gun.

I totally cop to being a peasant, though.

Ah, but "Baby Cambridge" is a title, which is quite different from the full name! These things are complicated. For that matter, I should probably have said Mountbatten-Windsor, though it's not entirely clear whether princes use that name or whether it's reserved for non-princes descended from Her Maj.

I looked it up briefly before doing this joke, and I was surprised by how complicated it was. The Daily Beast says Baby Cambridge can take "Cambridge" as his name if he wants (as others in the family have done) but it's totally up to him and he can change it if he wants.

Royals. They ain't like real people.

"Keepin' it royal" just doesn't have the same ring to it.

    Oh, yeah, excellent point.

    Oh yeah. Like the lawyers who get obvious really venal criminals off because it makes their success rate look good. But those are not the ones I am referring to in meaning well. These guys are mixed…

    This reminds me of the time my wife was injured and the insurance guy handling her case did everything possible to deny and stall the payment. We had to put her surgery on a credit card because this…

    The creepiest part is that some of them are actually well meaning.

    Yeah. It's godawful what people will do when they have authority and no fear about using it.
