    We love that the royal family have cute nicknames for each other. Did you know that Prince George calls Prince William ‘pops’?

    Prince Harry has a very sweet nickname for Kate Middleton – he reportedly calls her ‘Cath’ – and he refers to his wife, Meghan Markle, as ‘Meg’. And Meghan’s pals call Harry ‘Haz’. We also know that Kate calls Prince William ‘babe’, and that he calls her ‘darling’.

    But do you know what Kate calls little Princess Charlotte?

    The Duchess of Cambridge was reportedly out doing a bit of last minute Christmas shopping when an onlooker spotted the family.

    According to Sarah Daniels, who was at the discount store The Range at the same time, Charlotte was sitting on the floor while her mum picked out some gifts, and Kate said: ‘Get up, poppet’.

    The royal fan added: ‘I heard George say ‘Charlotte, pick that up’ and the penny suddenly dropped as to who they were. It seemed like a lovely family outing for them the day before Christmas Eve.

    ‘We are used to all the pomp and ceremony that goes with the Royal Family but it was great to see Kate shopping with her children in the kind of discount store the rest of us use.’

    How cute is that?
