Prince George has an adorable nickname for Prince William - and it's sweeter than dad.

Kate Middleton, The Duchess of Cambridge has given royal fans an adorable insight into their private family life, after revealing Prince George’s affectionate nickname for the Duke.

It was previously revealed that Prince George, Charlotte and Louis have an adorable name for Duchess Camilla (opens in new tab) - and it's not grandma!

And now OK! has reported that Kate let Prince William's nickname slip while chatting to a royal fan and football fan, Fiona Sturgess. Fiona asked after Prince George, eight, Louis, three, and Prince Charlotte, six, to which Kate replied, ‘They are great thank you.’

Fiona then revealed that ‘Kate said 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?’ - how cute!

Princess Charlotte arrives for her first day of school, with her brother Prince George and her parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, at Thomas's Battersea in London on September 5, 2019 in London, England.

Prince George, who recently celebrated his 8th birthday (opens in new tab) in a way that broke from tradition (opens in new tab), affectionately calls his ‘hero dad (opens in new tab)’ Pops.

It's also very sweet that Prince George is getting into football after fans have labeled his reaction to England's goal the best bit of the Euros (opens in new tab).

Prince William isn’t the only member of the firm to be treated to one of Prince George’s nicknames. In fact, according to OK! The Queen also has a very sweet nickname.

In an interview for ITV’s 'The Queen and ninety' documentary, Kate shared that Prince George, at just two years old, started calling his great-grandmother ‘Gan-gan.’

Prince Louis and Princess Charlotte have also reportedly followed suit and started calling her Gan-gan too!

The Queen is no stranger to a creative nickname, her most famous childhood nickname Lilibet (opens in new tab), was given to her by her father King George V after she struggled to say Elizabeth. Her husband Prince Philip continued to call her Lilibet (opens in new tab) throughout their marriage.

This nickname is the inspiration for Meghan and Prince Harry naming their first daughter, Lilibet Diana in a touching tribute to the Queen (opens in new tab).
