Diminutives are nicknames as well though. A specific type of nickname, but a nickname nonetheless.

Thanks LadyFinn, I was wondering about Madeleine's nickname. Is Vickan a Swedish/Scandinavian nickname for Victoria? I haven't heard it being used in English.
In Russian the nickname for Victoria is 'Vika', so maybe the nickname(s) bounced off each other at some point.

Yes, Vickan is a swedish nickname for Victoria. I don't know if it is used in Norway or Danmark.

Thanks Daria and LadyFinn. I quite like Vickan/Vika. Both nicknames have a nice sound to them. I have checked online to see if Vickan is used in Norway and Denmark, and from what I've read I think it's just used in Sweden.

afaik former Queen Juliana of the Netherlands was called "Lula" by her husband P.Bernhard (sort of a germanish variation of her name it seems..)

P.Beatrix calls her youngest son Constantijn "Tijntje" (which is a diminutive of his name)

From the interview with Mary and Frederik we now know that Frederik refers to Mary as Maz.

""He looks at his wife. "Where do you want to sit, Maz?" Evidently the prince has adopted the Australian habit of shortening names."

Did Prince Albert Victor, the Duke of Clarence and Avondale ever use Bertie as a nickname?
If YES, are there any letters signed by him using Bertie?
Are there any school papers with his signature as Bertie?
