The Royal Family

What the royal family call each other behind the palace doors?

Royal Family

The members of the British royal family are given many prestigious titles. But, do they refer to each other with those prestigious titles only? 

So, what do the members of the royal family call each other at home? 

Queen Elizabeth has a pretty hefty title which she doesn’t tend to go by in day-to-day life. If she went by Queen Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of her other realms and territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith every day, she’d definitely be running behind schedule.

But the royals aren’t always out in public and just like us, they have nicknames behind the palace doors: Those close to Her Majesty like Charles, William and Harry call her ‘Mama’. Her Majesty’s great-grandchildren, George and Charlotte, call her ‘Gan-Gan’.

Prince Philip had some cheeky nicknames for Her Majesty calling her ‘sausage’ and ‘cabbage’ from time to time.

However, those who don’t have any formal nicknames as of yet are Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle: According to some reports, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate does apparently go by ‘babe’ on occasion. 

Of course, it is her husband, Prince William who has been heard calling her that. ‘Darling’ is also another pet name he calls her. Why on Earth, would anyone dare to call Duchess Catherine with that name? 

But it’s the newest bride of the royal family, the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan who has been given a nickname by her father-in-law, Prince Charles. Charles calls her ‘Tungsten’.

It may sound like a rather bizarre choice of a nickname, but it represents the new royal being tough and unbending which is what the chemical element tungsten is described as.
