CathGan-GanP.P.…and who can forget Tungsten?!: The royals are no strangers to a good (read: kooky) nickname.

And Kate Middleton just revealed another family moniker the royals use behind closed palace doors. While speaking with a few attendees of the Leicester football stadium tribute honoring the tragic helicopter crash last month, the Duchess of Cambridge revealed that Prince George, 5, and Princess Charlotte, 3, have a sweet nickname for their ol’ man: “Pops.”

Season ticket holder Fiona Sturgess said she spoke with the duchess, per The Daily Mail. “Kate said that William was playing football with the children last night and one of them said, I think it was George, ‘Are you playing football tomorrow, Pops?’” 

Sturgess then added: “She said no!” and imitated Middleton’s eyebrow raise as she answered. 

So, His Royal Majesty on first greeting, and Pops every time thereafter?
