Four Queen Elizabeth II Children And Prince Philip are Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward. When Prince Andrew arrived in 1960, this was the reason for the celebration of the nation and queen, the last time he had met his baby 10 years ago with the birth of Princess Anne. However, Prince Philip's reaction to the happy news was less than a zeal, the royal biographer writes.
Ingrid Seward, in his 1991 "Sarah, HRC of Yorka Warrior", is studying the early days of Andrew.
Ms. Seward writes, "Andrew was born in time at the end of the period in which Prince Philip was exposed to serious public and parliamentary criticism."
When the Duke of Edinburgh went to Australia to open the 1956 Olympic Games in Sydney, he did not return to Britain until next year after he was cruising on the South Atlantic Queen's yacht in Britain.
His long-term absence caused rumors of a royal marriage break that ended with the announcement that the Queen was pregnant with Andrew in 1959.
However, Prince Phil also had some unusual words about the arrival of his new son.
He said, "People really want their first child.
– They want the others almost the same.
"If a third appears, they accept it as natural, even if they have not retired for it."
However, according to Sally Bedell Smith, in her book of Queen Elizabeth of 2012, the monarch and Duke of Edinburgh waited so long before Andrew entered the world because of a long-standing family smuggling.
When Elizabeth's father, King George VI, died and the queen rose to the throne in 1952, the Duke of Edinburgh wanted his royal children to take his last name Mountbatten
However, former Prime Minister Winston Churchill, Elizabeth's grandmother, Queen Mary and Queen Mother, all firmly believed that the name of the royal family must remain in Windsor.
Philip was said to have broken hearts and told his friends to feel "as a bloody amoeba" because he was "the only man in a country that was not allowed to give his name to his children."
In his biography, Ms. Bedell Smith wrote that Earl Mountbatten, Duke's uncle, believed that the 10-year "deferment" of a couple having more children after Princess Anne was due to Duke's dissatisfaction over her family name problem.
Eight years after, when the Queen of 1960 was pregnant with Andrew, she decided to visit former Prime Minister Harold Macmillan.
According to the biographer, Her Majesty considered it necessary to "re-examine" the surname issue because she "irritated her husband since 1952".
Ms. Bedell Smith cites a note in Mr Macmillan's diary, which states that Philip was "almost brutal" to his wife.
A former prime minister's magazine reads: "The Queen only wants (enough) to do something to satisfy her husband – with whom she is desperately in love.
"What disturbs me is the prince's almost brutal attitude toward the queen of all this."
However, the problem is solved and all the descendants of the Queen now have the surname Mountbatten-Windsor.
The new addition to the royal family, Prince Harry and the son of Meghan Markle, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, is the latest royal name holder.
