Prince Albert - "Bertie"
If you have seen the King's Speech, you probably feel like you know King George VI rather well. The Queen's beloved father was a reluctant King; thrown on to the throne after his brother's abdication, he had the enormous job of restoring the popularity of the monarchy which was at an all time low. He succeeded. He has gone down in history as being a dutiful family man and a King with personal courage. So perhaps William will pay homage to his great-grandfather whose baptismal name was Prince Albert.

There never has been a King Albert as Edward VII (born Prince Albert) decided he didn't want to diminish the status of his father. The Queen's (Elizabeth II) father took the regnal name George VI to carry on this tradition.
