Error corrections or clarifications

* Prince Philip was not born "Philip Mountbatten," as many sources erroneously state. It wasn't until 1947, when he renounced his Greek and Danish titles, that he took the name Mountbatten. Nor was he born "Philip Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderbert-Glucksburn," as a few sources claim.

NOTE: Some past editions of the World Almanac and Book of Facts erroneously report Prince Philip was born "June 1." Thankfully, newer editions correctly list June 10th, 1921. Also, certain older editions of the Americana Encyclopedia Annual misreport Prince Philip's date of birth as "June 12."
