Turns out the UK royals too have cute nicknames. Prince Harry is really Henry and Kate is Catherine. So it should not come as a surprise that Princess Charlotte too has a  homely moniker.

According to People magazine, Belfast-based blogger Laura-Ann brought her 2-year-old son George to Windsor Park Stadium hoping to catch a glimpse of Kate and Prince William during their two-day visit to Northern Ireland.

Luckily, not only did Laura-Ann get to have a chat with the royal mum-of-three, but she also learned what Kate calls Charlotte.

According to Laura Ann, who recounted the interaction on her Instagram handle later, Kate asked, "Hello – what’s your name?” adding, “Hi George, what a cool name you’ve got, and you look very smart in your bow tie. It’s very nice to meet you.”

Laura Ann then explained that Kate asked how old her other son is – and then unexpectedly dropped 3-year-old Charlotte’s cute nickname.

“And I said is he is 4 and she said, ‘Oh, he’s the same age as Lottie’ – she calls her Lottie!” an excited Laura-Ann said.

Notably, Kate has more than one nickname for Charlotte. During a last-minute Christmas shopping trip to a UK discount store, with her two eldest kids, the royal was overheard calling Charlotte by another cute moniker, "Poppet", according to an onlooker.
