Because having a common name like Elizabeth Windsor does not seem very "Royal" and puts her on the same shelf as everyone else.

Ask anyone you know if they know the Queen's last name. Hardly anyone will.

I've thought since childhood it is Plantagenet.

That may have been Elizabeth I though.

I never post as an AC.

There are things we were never meant to control because as humans it is in our nature to abuse power.

I'm not always popular because I write the truth.

They didn't have last names. They were know by their "house" or their land/area.

So that is why QEII was "Windsor" that was her "house."

Re: One of the most known people in world history yet almost nobody knows the Queen's last name.
The family name was Saxe-Coburg-Gotha.

During World War I due to the anti-German sentiment, King George V changed the name to Windsor.

The Royal Family name of Windsor was confirmed by The Queen in 1952.

In 1960, The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh decided that they would like their own direct descendants to be distinguished from the rest of the Royal Family and they became Mountbatten-Windsor.

For the most part, members of the Royal Family do not need a surname, but if at any time any of them do need a surname (such as upon marriage), that surname is Mountbatten-Windsor.

A proclamation on the Royal Family name by the reigning monarch is not a binding law and can be changed by the the next King/Queen.

Unless King Charles chooses to alter the present decisions when he becomes king, he will continue to be of the House of Windsor and his grandchildren will use the surname Mountbatten-Windsor.
I know a thing or two, because I've seen a thing or two.
