And we’re not exaggerating when we say it sounds like something straight out of an Enid Blyton book.
In 2018, Kate Middleton was chatting to fans at Leicester City Football Club when she let the nickname slip.
When royal fan Fiona Sturgess asked about the couple’s three children, Kate reportedly said: “They are great, thank you.”
Fiona told People at the time: “Kate said that William was playing football with the children last night.
“One of them said, I think it was George, ‘Are you playing football tomorrow, Pops?'”
What’s more, it has also been claimed the couple lovingly use the nickname PG for their eldest son – after his initials.
They then are reported to have then added Tips to the end of the nickname – after the famous tea brand – before eventually losing PG.
Meanwhile grandkids Prince George and Princess Charlotte refer to Her Majesty as “Gan-Gan”.
Prince William comically called the Queen “Gary” when he was young after struggling to correctly pronounce “Granny”.

Prince William may refer to his wife as “Catherine” in interviews, but he calls her sweet pet names in more casual settings.
He’s been overheard calling Kate Middleton “darling”, “babe” and “poppet” affectionately.
