Kate Middleton Reveals Her Kids’ Cute Nickname for Their Dad Prince William
By Rachel McRady
Prince William goes by many titles -- including the Duke of Cambridge, heir to the throne and His Royal Highness -- but the 36-year-old royal also has a special nickname given to him by his precious children.
William and Kate Middletonvisited Leicester, England, on Wednesday where they were asked several times by well wishers about their three kids, 5-year-old Prince George, 3-year-old Princess Charlotte and 7-month-old Prince Louis.
After Kate told one fan, "They’re doing well, thank you. They’re getting excited for Christmas time,” another onlooker named Fiona Sturgess later relayed her conversation with the Duchess to reporters.
"Kate said that William was playing football [soccer] with the children last night and one of them said, I think it was George, ‘Are you playing football tomorrow, Pops?’” she recalled, thus revealing the kids' nickname for their father.
While at the event, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were gifted presents for their three children, which included personalized Leicester City jerseys in custom boxes with their names and titles on them. Prince George’s jersey reads, “King Power.”
"They’ll be fighting over the Leicester and Aston Villa kits,” William said. "That’s very kind, that’s brilliant.”
“It’s such a special time to have little kiddies, and a cousin for George and Charlotte, as well, and Louis. It’s really special,” she said of the future child of Prince Harry and Meghan.
This comes after reports of “tension" between the royal couples. A source recently told ET, “Meghan and Kate have different interests and lead different lives." Meanwhile, Britain’s The Telegraph cited multiple sources claiming that Kate was left in tears following a bridesmaid dress fitting for Princess Charlotte prior to Meghan and Harry’s royal wedding.
