Princess Charlotte's nickname at home has been revealed to be completely different from the one she earned in preschool, according to inside reports. 


The only daughter of Prince William and Princess Catherine is known to the public as Princess Charlotte of Wales, but the royal tot is reported to have a series of nicknames and pet names that she is called by the people who really know her. 

It's been widely reported that the seven-year-old was known as 'Warrior Princess' during her time at the Willcock's Nursery, after demonstrating her adventurous spirit and love of the outdoors. Charlotte attended the £14,500-a-year preschool near the Wales family's former home at Kensington Palace between January 2018 and August 2019, before joining her older brother Prince George at Thomas's Battersea in south London.

"Apparently she earned that nickname because obviously, she is a Princess, but she's quite a tomboy," royal correspondent Katie Nicholl told Entertainment Tonight

"She loves climbing trees and she's very much an adventurer, she was quite known for her feisty personality. I'm wondering if that might be a nickname that will stick with her."

Interestingly, Prince William's nickname for Princess Charlotte at home is a far cry from the powerful moniker she earned at nursery school. It's understood that the 40-year-old affectionately refers to his only daughter as 'Mignonette', the French word for 'small and delicate', at their private residence of Adelaide Cottage in Windsor. It's also been reported that he and Kate sometimes call Charlotte 'Lottie' - likely because it's quicker to say!

As for Prince George, rumor has it he went by his initials, 'PG', at school. Kate and William humorously added their own twist to this nickname, reportedly referring to him as 'PG Tips' - after the iconic British tea - behind closed doors. 

These sweet monikers shouldn't come as a surprise to the public, with Royal Family nicknames long used as terms of endearment within the aristocratic clan. Princess Diana's nickname for Prince William was famously revealed to be 'Wombat', while King Charles's for Meghan Markle was reported to be 'Tungsten.' Other examples include Kate Middleton's nickname for Charles, which was revealed by a lipreader in 2021.
