According to a recently dusted-off and truly hilarious article about Her Majesty’s pet peeves—published by US Weekly literally eons ago when Prince George was a mere baby—Queen Elizabeth prefers not to use “pregnant” when describing women who are expecting. Why, you ask?

Well, the source claims Her Majesty instead refers to pregnant women as “in the family way.” Which is honestly the most Queen Elizabeth-y thing I’ve ever heard.
