Prince George and Princess Charlotte have unusual nickname for Camilla

To the outside world, the Royal Family can appear stuffy with all the formal titles and dukedoms to remember.

But, according to royal experts, “The Firm” are just like any other family when it comes to their nicknames for each other.

Prince Philip was known to famously call the Queen, his wife of 73 years, “cabbage” — an English take on the French phrase for saying “my darling”.

The French say “mon petit chou,” which translates literally to “my little cabbage”.

Even the youngest in the family have kept up the tradition of having fun names for their relatives, with Prince George and Princess Charlotte known to have pet names for their elders.

Here is a look at some of the names they adopted when they were younger.

What do William and Kate’s children call their grandparents?

The children of Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Prince and Princess of Wales, are said to have their own cute nicknames for the royal elders.

According to royal experts, the three children are constantly told stories about their "Granny Diana" — William and Harry’s mother who tragically died in a Paris car crash in 1997.

In a nod to his former title, they refer to King Charles III as “Grandpa Wales".

The nickname follows the same format as the Queen used for her grandad George V, who she referred to as Grandad England.

What do Camilla's grandchildren call her?

Queen Consort Camilla married the-then Prince Charles in 2005, having both been married before and subsequently divorced.

Camilla has five grandchildren of her own stemming from her two children's relationships.

She also has her step-grandchildren, William and Kate's children George, Charlotte and Louis, and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s little ones, Archie and Lilibet.

Shortly after the birth of Prince George, the 75-year-old told the Daily Mail: "My own grandchildren call me GaGa.

"I don’t know if it’s because they think I am! It is funny but is still very sweet."

According to the Sun, Camilla told the popstar Lady Gaga herself that her step-children had also adopted the “GaGa” nickname.

She is said to have made the admission when the pair met during the 2016 Royal Variety Performance.

What did Prince George and Princess Charlotte call the Queen?

Prince George had an adorable nickname for his great-grandmother, the Queen, calling her "Gan-Gan" when he was little.

He followed his Dad’s example in coming up with something new for Elizabeth II.

The Prince of Wales reportedly called Her Majesty by the name "Gary" in his early years, because he could not pronounce the word "grandma".

Speaking back in 2016 after the birth of Princess Charlotte, Kate Middleton said: "It's very special having a new little girl…I feel very, very lucky that George has got a little sister.

"The Queen was really thrilled that it was a little girl, and I think as soon as we came back here to Kensington she was one of our first visitors here.

"George is only two-and-a-half and he calls her 'Gan-Gan.'

"She always leaves a little gift or something in their room when we go and stay and that just shows her love for her family."
