They might be one of the most popular families in the world, but members of the Royal Family use nicknames for each other just as everyone else does.

With the birth of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's daughter, royal fans saw how the Sussexes named their baby Lilibet – which is also the Queen's family nickname.

The monarch was also called Lilibet by George VI, the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret during her childhood.

Her beloved husband Prince Philip used the nickname to affectionately refer to the Queen.

But Philip, who married Queen Elizabeth II in 1947, also called her "cabbage" or "sausage".

Another strange nickname for the Queen is "Gary", which reportedly comes from when Prince William was a child and could not pronounce Granny properly.

Prince William and Kate Middleton also share sweet nicknames, with the Duchess of Cambridge referring to her husband as "baldy".

In return, William reportedly refer to his wife as "DoD" – which is short for the Duchess of Dolittle – or "Poppet".

In a 2016 documentary, Kate revealed Prince George called the monarch "Gan-Gan" and that she always gave him gifts whenever they visited her.

Princess Diana used to call William "Wombat", as he said in an interview: "I can't get rid of it now. It began when I was two."

Kate and William's daughter Princess Charlotte is affectionately known as "Lottie" while her brother George is reportedly called "PG".

Princess Beatrice reportedly calls her sister Beatrice "Beabea".

Harry and Meghan also have nicknames for each other as royal fans found out during Harry's bus tour around Los Angeles with James Corden.

The Duchess of Sussex asked her husband: "Haz, how's your tour of LA going?"

The interviewer told Harry: "Haz? I didn't know we were calling you 'Haz' now."

Meghan's pals also have their own nickname for the prince, Hazza, but apparently he's not a fan.

Prince Charles reportedly nicknamed Meghan Markle "Tungsten", which is used to describe someone who is toughened and resilient.

Charles and Camilla secretly called each other "Fred and Gladys" during their years-long affair.

Speaking to The Sun, a royal insider said: "The royals are not very good at communicating with one another so this is one way around it. Nicknames are a way of taking the family tension out of things.

“They can also be a rather childlike family. They love to play games and they give each other silly presents. I think it's because they have to be so earnest in their public lives. Royals have always played in private.

"It's done with affection usually and there are grains of truth about what one feels about another."
