Nicknames can sometimes be a tricky subject. Some people love their nicknames, where others may hate the very idea of a nickname. But even so, we’ve all been given a nickname at one point or another.
And even the Royal Family has nicknames!
Queen Elizabeth’s nickname when growing up was Lilibet, given to her by her father, King George VI, because she couldn’t pronounce her own name. Prince Philip is also said to call her “Cabbage,” after the French phrase, “mon petite chou.”
Prince Harry’s real name is Henry, and Kate Middleton’s full name is Catherine. We also found out a little while ago that the adorable Prince George calls himself “Archie,”— and now we have knowledge of his sister’s nickname.
Belfast-based blogger Laura-Ann brought her 2-year-old son to Windsor Park Stadium on February 27 in hopes of catching a glimpse of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their little family. Laura-Ann got the opportunity to chat with Kate where she learned that they call Princess Charlotte, Lottie!
How adorable is that?!
Laura-Ann shared her encounter with the royals on her Instagram Stories, and even shared footage of Kate meeting her son who shares the same name as Prince George.
The blogger explained that Kate asked how the age of her son. “I said, ‘he is 4’ and she said, ‘Oh, he’s the same age as Lottie’ — she calls her Lottie!”
As for the youngest royal, Louis, he’s yet to receive an adorable nickname — that we know of anyways. You can bet we’ll have our ears to the floor for that one though!
Until then, Lottie and Archie are more than enough to keep our royal nickname inquires satisfied.
