It’s hard to imagine Kate Middleton and Prince William as young, carefree university students.
To be fair, they are the future King and Queen, so we understand why they’re always so refined.
However, they were young once, and just like us in many ways.
How so, you ask?
Well, The Sun is reporting that Kate Middleton had an inappropriate nickname for her boyfriend (William) in college.
Apparently, while the pair were in the early days of dating, Kate gave William the nickname “Big Willy”.
Yep, we’re howling.
We LOVE that she had a saucy little nickname for her man.
The paper also reports that Kate has taken to calling Prince William “Baldy” in more recent years.
Prince William in return has taken to referring to his wife as ‘DoD’, short for “Duchess of Dolittle”.
Speaking to The Sun a Buckingham Palace insider said:
“The royals are not very good at communicating with one another so this is one way around it.”
“Nicknames are a way of taking the family tension out of things.”
“They can also be a rather childlike family. They love to play games and they give each other silly presents.”
Anyway, Long Live King Big Willy.
