Royal cuteness alert! Prince George and Princess Charlotte's nickname for their father, Prince William, has been revealed, and it's just as adorable as we've ever hoped. Nicknames are nothing new for the royal family, so we would've bet money that they didn't refer to him as "father," but we couldn't have called this one!

  • According to reports, the Duke of Cambridge's two eldest children call him "Pops."

    Prince William and Kate Middleton visited Leicester on Wednesday to honor the recent death of Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, chairman of the city’s beloved soccer club. Kate opened up about her kids while speaking to volunteers helping relocate flowers and other tributes to a dedicated site, and said, "They are great, thank you."

    According to People magazine, season ticket holder Fiona Sturgess told reporters, "Kate 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?'"

  • Is Pops the cutest thing ever, or what?

    We have no doubt that George and Char will be teaching their baby brother, Prince Louis, to say Pops soon too. At 7 months old, he's probably on the young side, but it won't be too long before he's big enough to start imitating sounds, especially simple ones like Pops.

  • Of course, the kids already have the cutest nicknames for other members of the family. 

    It was recently reported they call Prince Charles "Grandpa Wales," and of course Queen Elizabeth has long been known as "Gan-Gan" to the grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

  • We love that the royal family doesn't stick with old-fashioned, formal names like "mother" and "father."

    Now are there any bets as to what Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's new baby will eventually call them?
