Yes, Britain has been ruled by foreign sovereigns ever since Elizabeth I died and the native House of Tudor came to a close. What followed were the Scottish Stuarts, the Dutch Oranges, and the German Hannoverians and Saxe-Coburg-Gothas (Windors). And Germans will continue to rule Britain when Elizabeth II gives up trying to outlive her mother, who died at the age of 102.
When, or if, Charles ascends the throne, and William after (if a bloody revolution doesn't off their heads or throw em down a mine shaft), then the royal family shall be called the House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg, after the family of mad dad Philip, Prince of Greece and Denmark.
Salic law may not govern ascendancy to the throne in Britain, but paternal primogeniture still governs family names.
