British Royal Family

What Prince George calls the Queen

Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth, may be the reigning monarch to the world, but to young Prince George, she is simply Nanny.

Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana was christened on Sunday but it was the little one’s older brother, Prince George, who stole the show yet again with his cute antics as he walked alongside his parents, Prince William and Duchess Catherine.

During the outing, the world was given a rare glimpse of the royals interacting with one another and the bolshie tyke, who’ll turns two on July 22nd, showed us he was particular fond of his granny.

Footage captured on the day shows the older brother of Charlotte looking around for the rest of his family, prompting doting dad Wills to reassure his young boy that everyone was on their way.

"They're coming, they're all coming. We can go back to nanny's," the 33-year-old promised his first child, as they made their way back to The Queen's Sandringham estate for afternoon tea.

Meanwhile, it's believed the blonde cutie calls Carole Middleton Grandma while William and Harry call the queen Granny.

During the2012 London Olympics Opening Ceremony, William and Harry both shouted "Go, Granny" when the Queen "parachuted" into the arena for the infamous James Bond-themed stunt.

While Prince Harry sweetly revealed during a Diamond Jubilee interview, "To me she's just Granny.”

This was the first time we saw The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s family of four altogether, and it looks like Prince George takes after his Uncle Harry, displaying adorable doses of cheekiness.

It was so lovely to see the entire family of four together!

The christening ceremony played homage to William’s mother, Princess Diana, as two-month-old Charlotte was baptised at the same church where Diana was christened.

Skipping tradition, no royals, including Prince Harry who was in Africa for charity work, were chosen as the Princess' godparents - instead the parents opting for close friends and loved ones.

Kensington Palace shared the names of the fourth-in-line to the throne’s godparents via a statement, which read: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have asked the following people to be godparents to Princess Charlotte, all of whom are friends or family of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.”

They revealed their names to be: "Miss Sophie Carter, Mr. James Meade, Mr. Adam Middleton ,The Hon. Laura Fellowes, Mr. Thomas van Straubenzee."

The day turned out to be breathtaking with Middletons, royals and close friends and loved ones enjoying the sunshine as they walked together from the Queen's Sandringham house to the nearby St. Mary Magdalene Church with crowds of 3,500 gathered to watch from the paddock.

Duchess Catherine oozed elegance in a cream Alexander McQueen coat, the same designer she chose for George's Christening in October 2013 and her 2011 wedding.

The future Queen teamed her look with a matching Jane Taylor hat and pinned back her brunette tresses.

Princess Charlotte was baptised in her brother's hand-me-downs – a handmade replica of the 170-year-old lace and satin royal christening gown, made by Angela Kelly, dressmaker to the queen.

George channelled his father as he wore a white, short sleeve shirt with a rounded collar and red markings, paired with a pair of red shorts, white socks and black shoes—an almost identical outfit to one worn by Will, the first time he met younger brother Prince Harry hours after his birth in 1984.

After the christening service, guests headed to Sandringham House for tea. Just like George's christening, guests enjoyed slices of christening cake, which is a tier taken from William and Catherine's 2011 wedding cake.
