At the Whitstable Oyster Festival in Kent, England on Monday, Prince Charles is said to have told locals that George is “a very good name,” according to Us Magazine. He also reportedly revealed that he thinks baby George would be called “Georgie in no time.” Awww, Georgie!
The adorable nickname is not new for the family: The royals are said to have affectionately referred to the late Prince George, Duke of Kent, as ‘Georgie.’
Prince Charles seems to be reveling in his new role as grandpa. Following George’s birth, he issued a statement saying he was “overjoyed” about the new addition to the family. “Grandparenthood is a unique moment in anyone’s life, as countless kind people have told me in recent months,” he said, “so I am enormously proud and happy to be a grandfather for the first time...”
So now we know what grandpa will be calling little George. Do you think William and Kate will call the little one ‘Georgie’ too?
