The public are wondering when celebrations will begin to mark the 100 year anniversary since the Royal family simply changed their name to Windsor from Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.
German King of England, George V changed the family name in 1917, choosing to rename our Royal family after the castle he happened to be living in at the time.
Peter Thape from Barnsley arranged a street party to celebrate the historic centenary, which celebrated the close bond between our two countries.
‘We had German flags, pictures of great German leaders, music from Wagner – hardly anyone came,’ said Thape.
‘I found the whole thing really embarrassing; had to change my name,’ added Peter Barnsley.
