It’s no news that people often give nicknames to someone dear to them and it’s not different for the members of the Royal Family.
Prince Williams once revealed he use to call his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II Gary as he couldn’t pronounce granny as a child.
Prince Philip also had a nickname for her, as he often called her ‘cabbage’ and ‘sausage.’ Her family called her Lilibeth when she was a child.
A video recorded in 2019 resurfaced and it was a happy moment for Prince Williams and his family. They were at the Royal Chelsea Flower Show. Kate created a garden for the event and it was passing information to everyone to get back to nature. When George was asked to rate the garden out of 10, he replied 20.
While in the garden, Prince William gets on the garden’s rope swing and calls for his daughter to push him but instead of calling for Charlotte he calls for “Mignonette”. It’s a French Word, which means “small, sweet, and delicate” or “cute”.
On one of their trips to North Ireland, Kate revealed her nickname for Charlotte. She was having a conversation with a fellow mom called Laura-Ann and her son.
Laura-Ann posted the conversation on her Instagram page saying, “She asked how old Bertie is, and I said he is four and she said, ‘Oh, he’s the same age as Lottie.’ She calls her Lottie!”
It may surprise you to know that Prince George has his nickname and it isn’t PG that we all know. He’s sometimes referred to as Tips.
Tips are said to stem from his original nickname of PG for Prince George which led them to the name of a British brand of tea called PG Tips.
When Prince William was younger, Princess Diana gave him the nickname, ‘Wombat.’
“When we went to Australia with our parents, and the wombat, you know, that’s the local animal, so I just basically got called that, not because I look like a wombat, or maybe I do,” William said in 2007, as per Marie Claire. “I can’t get rid of it now. It began when I was two.”
Nicknames are something we all can relate to as sometimes it’s given by our loved ones to show how dear we are to them.
Prince William calls his wife ‘babe’ and ‘darling’ and even ‘babykins’. According to The Sun, in more private settings, William has been overheard calling Kate “darling,” “babe,” and “poppet.”
