In order to prevent the spread of nonsense, and not out of any great respect for the British Royal Family, I should point out that this is a joke.
The family in question currently call themselves the Mountbatten-Windsor family. The name Saxe-Coburg-Gotha did not seem quite English, or British, enough in 1916, so the name Windsor was adopted. After the present Queen
married the name Mountbatten, itself an Anglicisation
of Battenburg, was added.
N.B. Windsor, not Winsor.

P.S. The Latin does not have the English translation alleged too, if you are wondering.

Winsorising is named after the British Royal Family, whose motto is 'ignore anything odd' (de gustibus, nil, nisi noster').
