Prince George shares his cute nickname for himself

Royal Family 01/02/2019

Prince George has reportedly revealed an unknown nickname for himself during an outing in Berkshire while visiting his grandmother Carole Middleton. 

The pint-sized prince stopped to pet a passer-by's dog while playing with his younger sister Princess Charlotte. The five-year-old then got chatting to the dog's owner (who recognised him straight away, but thought she'd strike up a casual conversation with the prince), and he reportedly told her his name was "Archie".

The unnamed woman spoke in an interview saying: 

"I was asked by a police minder not to take a photo of the children, which I didn't, but George started stroking my dog. Just to be friendly I engaged in a bit of small talk and asked George what his name was, even though I obviously knew it. To my astonishment he said 'I'm called Archie' with a big smile on his face,"

"I don't know why he calls himself Archie but kids often play with their names and I think it's lovely."

It may be a name George calls himself, or one that he's called by his family too, but either way it wouldn't be the first nickname he's had. 

At his school in St Thomas' Battersea, George is known as "PG", which is likely short for Prince George. It's been picked up by his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who call him "PG Tips" or "Tips" for short - referencing the famous English tea brand.
