India Hicks was named India because her grandfather, Lord Mountbatten was the last viceroy of India.

And yes you are correct I also think this is a prime illustration of how the RF really does have real power behind the scenes. This is why all the men go into the armed forces - if there was a revolution the armed forces would be onside. Let's also not forget that armed forces, police MPs etc also swear an oath of office to the Queen not to the nation or the people, but to the Queen
TBH if push came to shove most people in those occupations would do what's right, they wouldn't blindly side with the queen. They couldn't charge the whole of the forces and services with insubordination. Most people say the oath, mean most of it and conveniently ignore the bit about the monarch. We may work under the umberella of 'Her Majesties whatever' but there's just as many republicans among us as the civilian world. Possibly even more.

Before he agreed to the appointment of Viceroy of India, Lord Louis Mountbatten insisted on, and was granted, two conditions. First, he must be allowed to return to the Navy at his correct rank when his work in India was completed. Second, he must be given absolute powers to perform that work.
