Kate Middleton Prince Harry

Prince Harry’s nickname for sister-in-law Kate Middleton.


The world may know the future queen as Duchess Catherine, but her brother-in-law, Prince Harry calls her by another name.

Prince Harry has a special name for Catherine and the name isn’t very unique.

It turns out that Prince Harry fondly refers to his brother’s spouse as ‘Cath’. It’s a shortened version of her full name Catherine. In 2017, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate sat down with BBC. Radio host, Scott Mills said he listened to a podcast with Prince Harry where he refers to the couple as “William and Cath”.

Mr Scott Mills said “Is this a thing just in the family?, he asked Kate. Yeah, I’m not sure”, she says. “I am not that familiar with it I have to say, but I’ll answer to most things, to be honest”.

In a 2016 special interview for Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday, Kate Middleton said that George calls his great-grandmother “Gan-Gan”. A similar story was reported of the Duke of Cambridge, William when he was a toddler. He called his grandmother “Gary” when he couldn’t pronounce “Granny”.

“Queen Elizabeth was on hand after William fell over at Buckingham Palace, bawling: ‘Gary, Gary’. A guest who went to help asked who Gary actually was, assuming it must be a member of the royal household”. “‘I’m Gary,’. He hasn’t learned to say Granny yet, Her Majesty explained.
