Prince Charles has revealed the nickname his eldest grandkids Prince George and Princes Charlotte have given him — and it’s very royal.

Unlike Prince William and Harry who affectionately call Queen Elizabeth, “granny”, the heir to the throne confessed that his grandchildren refer to him as “Grandpa Wales”.

Charles, 69, is clearly a huge fan of the moniker, and told royal author Robert Hardman in the Daily Mail, that “it’s very important to create a bond when they are very young.”

“It’s a different part of your life,” he said. “The great thing is to encourage them. Show them things to take their interest. My grandmother did that, she was wonderful.”

Other royal nicknames

The title has a striking similarity to the one Queen Elizabeth II had for her granddad, which was “Grandpa England”.

But Charles isn’t the only royal who has earned a moniker from George, five, and Charlotte, three.

Camilla, the Duchess of Cambridge, is reportedly known as “Gaga” by the pair, while they call the Queen “Gan Gan”.

Even Meghan Markle, who has only officially been part of the regal clan since May, has earned a nickname, apparently being called “Tungsten” by Charles, a metal that is known for being strong and robust.
