Prince George of Cambridge is almost certainly going to sit on the throne of Great Britain as king one day. At the moment, though, he’s just a cute little boy. What’s more, he’s also one of the few people allowed to speak to Queen Elizabeth II using something other than her name or “Your Majesty.” And now George’s mommy Kate Middleton has revealed exactly what the little prince does call his famous great-grandmother.
It’s also worth bearing in mind that the British royals do have official titles by which they are intended to be called. For example, although George’s parents Prince William and Kate Middleton are often referred to as “Wills and Kate” by the media, it would be a huge faux pas to dub them as such to their faces. For instance, although Kate doesn’t mind being called either by that name or by Catherine, officially she’s Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. Her husband, in turn, is Prince William, Duke of Cambridge.
And after William and Kate got married, they therefore knew that their first child would be either a Prince or Princess of Cambridge. However, when it came down to providing an heir to the throne, it didn’t actually matter whether the couple had a boy or a girl. That’s because, ahead of George’s birth in July 2013, Britain’s parliament passed a new law that allowed the oldest royal child to become monarch regardless of their gender.
