The British Royals have such sweet endearing nicknames for each other.

Here's a list of all the pet names you'd hear in Buckingham Palace:

The Queen mother's nickname for Queen Elizabeth

Queen Elizabeth II didn't always go by Elizabeth, which is a strong royal name, reported Cosmopolitan. While growing up, she was known to her mother and her family members as Lilibet. It was also a name adopted by Prince Philip for his wife till he breathed his last.

The sweet moniker was also chosen by her grandson Prince Harry for his daughter, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, with former actress Meghan Markle. If one goes by rumors, the nickname originally came about after Elizabeth II couldn't pronounce her own name as a child. But it might also be because her own mother was called Elizabeth, so the nickname might have helped to avoid any confusion when it came to their names.

Princess Charlotte's nickname for Prince William

Fathers are mostly called daddy by their kids. But it seems like the Cambridge children have another name for their dad, reported British Heritage Travel. On Instagram, a card was shared to mark Mother's Day earlier this year.

In the card, Princess Charlotte's handwriting could be seen addressed to her late grandmother, "Granny Diana." The five-year-old wrote that she was thinking of "Granny Diana" on Mother's Day. She wrote that she loves her very much, and "Papa is missing you. Lots of love, Charlotte." The little one calls her dad Papa, which is possibly the most endearing and posh thing.

Kate Middleton's nickname for Princess Charlotte

Kate Middleton was chatting to a blogger in Belfast. The blogger had joined the crowds to greet the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge along with her son, 2. When the blogger mentioned she had another, older son, Bertie, 4, Kate said that he is nearly the same age as Lottie.

Prince George's nickname for Prince William

Kate once spoke to a member of the crowd in Leicester. The person later told reporters that the Duchess of Cambridge said that William was playing football with the "children last night and one of them said, I think it was George, 'Are you playing football tomorrow, Pops?'"

In an April 2016 interview, Kate revealed a sweet detail about her eldest son's relationship with his great grandmother, Queen Elizabeth. The Duchess said that George "calls her Gan-Gan."

Meghan Markle's nickname for Prince Harry

Prince Harry did an unprecedented "tour of LA" interview with James Corden, and when the host spoke to Meghan on Harry's phone, the Duchess asked her husband, "Haz, how’s your tour of LA going?"

Prince Charles and Camilla's nicknames for each other

It was highlighted in season 4 of "The Crown" that Prince Charles and his wife Camilla had some interesting nicknames for one another even before they got married. The two apparently first started calling one another Fred and Gladys when they first dated in their 20s. They were inspired by characters from BBC radio’s "The Goon Show."

But as they went on to be in relationship with other people, the secret nicknames became useful during their private correspondence. The pet names were so fondly used by the couple that "The Crown" showed Charles giving Camilla a bracelet with the initials GF engraved on it. It stood for Gladys and Fred. It was given shortly before his marriage to Princess Diana.

Prince Harry's nickname for Archie

Harry is happy to be a dad to Archie. He took part in a video call in celebration of the Rugby Football League's birthday. At the time, he was asked about how he's enjoying his new life in California. He answered by saying that he's "loving it," and went on to explain that he particularly appreciates all the outdoor space it has given his family.

Harry went on to discuss family and work life, and it was at that time that he slipped in the adorable nickname for Archie. He said that "our little man" is their number one priority but then their work after that is the second priority.
