Duchess Kate reveals the cute name her kids call Prince William

Duchess Kate

There is nothing we like more than a royal nickname story, so the latest reveal from Duchess Kate made us very happy!

“Hey, Pops!”

Kate and Prince William were visiting Leicester on Wednesday to honour Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, chairman of the city’s beloved football club, who sadly recently died in a helicopter accident.

When asked about her children, Kate was more than happy to have a chat, with one punter noting she shared a particularly cute detail about Wills.

“Kate said that William was playing football with the children last night and one of them said, I think it was George, ‘Are you playing football tomorrow, Pops?’ ” People Magazine reports. They heard this from Leicester season ticket holder Fiona Sturgess.

“Gary, Gary!”

As far as other royal nicknames go, Prince George used to call the Queen ‘GanGan’ when he couldn’t quite manage Granny.

His dad, Prince William, did similar, a report stating that when he was very little and had fallen over in the grounds of Buckingham Palace, he was overheard yelling “Gary, Gary” at the Queen.

Prince Charles is known as Grandpa Wales to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis too.

Prince Harry was heard calling his new wife “Meg” during the recent Invictus Games. And Harry has a nickname for Kate too … he apparently calls her CATH!

Prince William has been heard calling Kate “Poppet” and “Darling” while she’s been known to call him “Babe”.

Prince Philip affectionately calls the Queen “Cabbage” at least some of the time and the Queen Mother called her daughter “Lilibet”.

And last but not least the nickname hatched by Princess Diana who began to call Prince William “Wombat” following a visit to Australia. CUTE!

Last night The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the Tusk Conservation Awards 2018. The #TuskAwards celebrate the extraordinary work of individuals who are protecting endangered wildlife in Africa. Their Royal Highnesses met all the award nominees and supporters of Tusk before The Duke presented three Conservation Awards… ➡️Tusk Award for Conservation to Vincent Opyene who has single-handedly changed how Uganda addresses the illegal wildlife trade, risking his life on a daily basis to combat wildlife trafficking and to bring criminals to justice. ➡️ The Tusk Wildlife Ranger Award to Julius Obwona for his leadership in Murchison Falls, Uganda which has led to the prosecution of 720 suspects involved in wildlife related crimes, and the number of elephants killed by poachers has dropped from three a day to three a month. ➡️ The Prince William Award for Conservation in Africa to Pete Morkel in recognition of his successful work in relocating a range of wildlife including rhino, elephant and giraffe. Through his work, a much higher level of knowledge on these species has been acquired throughout Africa, ultimately helping with their management, protection and wider conservation. #ForAllTheyDo #TuskAwards #endwildlifecrime 📷(2) @chrisjacksongetty 📷 (1/3) Press Association
