When it comes to royal protocol, there is a relationship where the rules don’t apply: the one between Prince George and his great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.
In fact, on the occasion of the Queen’s 90th birthday in 2016, Kate Middleton said Hello magazine that the two-and-a-half-year-old boy had an informal nickname for the royal matriarch: Gan-Gan. (So sweet!)
Reminder: Prince William also He had a unique nickname for his grandmother when he was Prince George’s age. By Daily mail Columnist Richard Kay referred to her as “Gary”. (As the queen herself explained back then, apparently, it was Prince William’s best attempt to say “Granny” at an early age.)
Kate also revealed one of the ways Queen Elizabeth goes the extra mile to make her relationship with her great-grandchildren (including Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis) very special: “She always leaves a small gift or something in her room when come on and stay and that just shows your love for your family. “
Aw, grandmothers, er, Gan-Gans are the best, right?
