The Duchess of Cambridge has revealed her daughter Princess Charlotte’s adorable nickname while on tour in Northern Ireland with husband Prince William.
Blogger Laura-Ann from the city of Belfast took to Instagram to share the news of her meeting with Catherine at Windsor Park Stadium. The mum reportedly recounted her and son George’s interactions with Catherine on her Instagram stories, sharing a short video of their chat.
“Hello – what’s your name?” the duchess can be heard asking Laura Ann’s little boy, Vanity Fair reports. “Hi George, what a cool name you’ve got, and you look very smart in your bow tie. It’s very nice to meet you.”
Laura-Ann then mentioned she has an older son which prompted Kate to ask how old he is, before she casually revealed Charlotte’s nickname.
The excited royal fan explained her other son is four-years-old to which Kate replied: “Oh, he’s the same age as Lottie”.
The news of Charlotte’s cute nickname follows reports earlier this year that her brother Prince George likes to be called something completely different.
According to The Sun, the oldest son of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, whose full name is George Alexander Louis, got chatting to the dog walker while out in Berkshire with his grandmother Carole Middleton and sister Charlotte.
The woman, who did not want to be named, told the news outlet she was asked not to take photos of the kids by a police minder, but got talking to five-year-old George when he began stroking her dog.
“Just to be friendly I engaged in a bit of small talk and I asked George what his name was, even though obviously I knew it,” she explained.
“To my astonishment he said ‘I’m called Archie’ with a big smile on his face. I don’t know why he calls himself Archie but kids often play with their names and I think it’s lovely.”
It’s unclear if it’s a sweet name that his parents use, or simply a name George has chosen himself.
George already reportedly has several nicknames, with his parents referring to him as their “little grape” before he was born.
From there, it’s been claimed in several news outlets that he got named “PG” at school and his parents made it “PG Tips” or just “Tips” at home.
