An Israeli man has requested to officially change his name to Henry William Phillip Charles Frederick Michael Louis George Edward Robert.
The ten names are all those of former British sovereigns and, according to Ynet, the man was inspired to apply for the name-change by the extensive coverage in Israel of Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding.
The royal wedding was a school day at Manchester's King David High. To make it a celebratory occasion, teachers had stayed late the previous night to decorate corridors with banners wishing the couple mazeltov. Special assemblies and an ice cream lunch were also organised.
Buckingham Palace is ready and everything will be perfect for today's royal simchah. But with all the pressures on them, I doubt whether Prince William and Kate Middleton managed to find time to delve into the Jewish laws of respecting their future in-laws.
Rabbi Michael Laitner runs the United Synagogue's Newlyweds Programme which helps couples learn practical Jewish approaches to married life. He has some advice which he thinks might be useful to a certain young couple who are tying the knot today: "An old Midrashic adage states that a groom is compared to a king as long, add the rabbis, as he treats his bride like a queen."
