Prince Philip’s Not a Regular Prince; He’s a Cool Prince & His Palace Nickname Proves It

We know Prince Philip is the palace’s resident BBQ enthusiast, that he loves a good reno project and thanks to historian Adrian Tinniswood, now we know he has a surprisingly chill nickname.

In Tinniswood’s new book Behind the Throne: A Domestic History of the British Royal Household, he reveals that the Duke of Edinburgh’s friends and staff call him P.P. for short—as in, “P.P., do you fancy a game of squash on the palace’s private court?” It’s punchy, it’s refreshing, it’s unexpected, it’s so Prince Philip. We’d expect nothing less considering he’s the palace staff’s fave royal.

The questions remains: Does Queen Elizabeth call him that?
