‘Big Willy’, ‘Baldy’, and other nicknames between Prince William and Kate Middleton

Prince William and Kate Middleton seem to have a relationship like any other, and part of that is giving each other nicknames that only they can call each other. While Prince William calls Kate ‘Duchess of Dolittle‘, she calls him ‘Big Willy’ and ‘Baldy’.

They have funny and quirky nicknames, but some mean ones too

This is according to a former staff member of the Palace and royal biographer called Tom Quinn in his book called Gilded Youth An Intimate History of Growing Up in the Royal Family where he shares the relationship between the couple.

The Prince of Wales calls Kate Duchess of Dolittle as a nudge to what Queen Elizabeth II used to say to Kate, acknowledging that she did not have a full-time career before they married back in 2011.

However, the Princess also has comebacks, as she calls him baldy, due to her lack of hair and the contrast between them both as she has a full mane of hair.

Not all are mean nicknames as the Prince of Wales calls the Duchess “babykins

According to an interview that Prince William gave to NBC, he recalled what his mother, the late Princess Diana called him, and he mentioned that she used to call him ‘Wombat’, and the name carried on ’til his adulthood.

Tom Quinn mentioned to the news that “Someone at the palace told me about the nicknames they have for each other.

Quinn elaborated, “But it’s not all sweetness. They have terrible rows where they throw things at each other. Kate might seem to be a very calm person, and William also.” He concluded” But it’s not always true. Because the big stress for William and Kate is that they’re constantly surrounded by [palace aides]. It’s like a Jane Austen novel,”
