What is the last name (surname) of the royal family?

I've read that their last name may or may not be considered "Windsor".

    Mountbatten-Windsor is the personal surname of some of the descendants of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip

    Well it was originally a German name. However to save confusion the queen change her name last name to Windsor, after the great palace.

    Yes they are "from the House of Windsor."

    You can read about it on the OFFICIAL site of British Monarchy here: http://www.royal.gov.uk/Home.aspx

    Ya know, i was wondering that too because they never mention it. I looked on Wikipedia and still couldn't find it. Maybe it really is Windsor.

    It's Saxe-Coburg-Gotha but they changed it after world war 2 because of people's hate for gerry's at that time. Some argue we till hate gerry's but there you go.
