Royal Family nicknames: Kate and William, Harry and Meghan and ‘Lillibet’ revealed | Life | Life & Style


The Royal Family are to welcome two new members this year with a marriage and a royal birth.

Meghan Markle, 36, and Prince Harry, 33, are to marry in 33 days at Windsor Castle, with preparations well underway.

The royal birth is expected any day now with Kate Middleton, 33, currently pregnant with her third child with Prince William, 33.

Yet with all of the royal couples, a number of nicknames have been revealed over time between them all, along with some of the younger generations too.

But what are some of the pet names given to one another?

Meghan reportedly gave her fiancee a new nickname just weeks after meeting him.

According to her Suits co-star Gina Nelthorpe-Crowne, she affectionally calls him “Haz”.

Whilst Prince William and Kate Middleton don’t appear to have a shortened nickname, she has been heard to call him babe, whilst he refers to her as darling or poppet.

Yet Kate had a rather embarrassing school nickname which doesn’t appear to be something her husband calls her.

Due to having two guinea pigs, Kate was known as “Squeak” whilst her sister Pippa was “Pip”.

The Queen has a number of pet names that have been given to her over the years by the royal family.

She was famously known as “Lillibet” when she was a child and by Prince Philip, yet he is also known to call her “Cabbage” after over 70 years together.

Her grandson, Prince George struggled to say her name and instead she goes by “Gan-Gan”.

Similarly, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, was called “GaGa” by the children.

Prince Charles and Camilla reportedly call each other “Gladys” and “Fred” as their code names as opposed to nicknames.

Other code names in an attempt to keep their personal lives private was Spike Wells, which Harry used as a Facebook Page, and Steve, which Prince William was given at St Andrews.

Prince Charles previously admitted to wanting to call Prince George “Georgie” after he was born as a good name.

Harry gave himself his own funny name after the births of his nieces and nephews.

He called himself “The Funcle” as a play on “fun uncle” when the two children were born.
