It’s been confirmed that the King will be known as Charles III.

Following the death of Queen Elizabeth II after her incredible 70-year reign, her son Charles Philip Arthur George will be crowned King Charles III.

William and Kate’s Twitter account @KensingtonRoyal now refers to the couple as The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge.

But could the new King have chosen a different name? If we look to the British monarchy’s long history the answer is yes, if he wanted to.

The history of the names of British kings and queens is a tale of Williams, Georges, Henrys and Edwards, with a couple of Elizabeths and Marys as well.
