The entire world was left in grief when Princess Diana passed away in 1987 following a tragic car accident. Her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, were left without their mother; a country was left without its favourite princess.
Ever since the accident, William and Harry have endeavored to honor their mother in the best ways possible. Today, the brothers have children on their own, and even though Diana isn’t alive, the next generation of royal kids are also doing their bit to remember her.
It even turns out that William and Harry’s children have their own names for their grandmother Diana – quite a few, as it happens.
Princess Diana was loved by many. She became a part of the Royal Family in 1981 when she married Prince Charles. The couple tied the knot in St Paul’s Cathedral in London, and royal faces from several countries were in attendance.
This is what the royal children are calling their grandmother, Diana
However, at school, the same rule doesn’t apply, apparently. According to Hello Magazine, George and Charlotte aren’t referred to by their royal titles.
Instead, they go by George Cambridge and Charlotte Cambridge. It’s a nod to their parents’ titles, with William and Kate Middleton being the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. It’s been reported that his classmates call Prince George “PG”.
Of course, this isn’t the first time royal children have taken on nicknames. Both William and Harry had nicknames of their own while in school and later while serving in the military, being referred to as William Wales and Harry Wales. Their father, Charles, is the Prince of Wales. Their mother, Diana, was the Princess of Wales.
“Granny” and “Grandma” Diana
As reported by Hello Magazine, last year, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis all wrote Mother’s Day cards to Princess Diana for Mother’s Day.
“Each year on Mother’s Day, George, Charlotte and Louis make cards remembering their Granny, Diana, for William,” William and Kate wrote on Twitter, alongside three adorable homemade cards created by the youngsters.
Speaking to Today, Harry revealed that he often talks with Archie about his own mother.
“Yes, very much so. I don’t tell him all the stuff that’s happened, but certainly that this is Grandma Diana, and we’ve got a couple of photos up in the house,” Harry said, adding that he constantly feels her presence.
“It has been over the last two years more so than ever before,” he said. “It is almost as though she’s done her bit with my brother and now she’s very much like helping me. She got him set up and now she’s helping me set up. That’s what it feels like. He’s got his kids, I’ve got my kids.”
