In an ITV special last year, made to mark Her Majesty the Queen’s birthday, the Duchess of Cambridge spoke not only of the fantastic relationship she has with the now 91-year-old Monarch, but also revealed Prince George’s adorable nickname for his great-grandmother – and guess what, we all forgot!

Speaking of her relationship with the Queen in the documentary, the duchess said:

‘She’s been very generous and not sort of been forceful at all in any of her views, but I feel she’s been a gentle guidance really for me,’ she shared.

While revealing all the goss on the Monarch, Kate let another thing slip: Gan-Gan.

Yes, that’s what the three-year old Prince really calls the British sovereign. Cute.

Cute it may be, that’s nothing compared to what his father, Prince William used to call his grandmother as a child.

Saucy gossip columnist Richard Kay revealed in the Daily Mail that Prince William used to refer to the Queen as ‘Gary’, because he had trouble pronouncing ‘granny’.

In the revealing article, Kay wrote that a guest visiting the Palace one day saw William fall over while chasing the Queen, screaming ‘Gary, Gary’.

The guest assumed Gary was a royal, but the Queen explained:

‘I’m Gary. He hasn’t learned to say Granny yet.’

Queen Gary of United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Could you imagine?
