I think its kind of cute.
I think they used that endearment in the film 'The Queen' - didn't they? It sounds familiar. When they were in the bedroom. I have the DVD and one of these days I'll watch it again - such a great performance by Helen Mirren - one really does think its the Queen. Anyway, I'll watch for that.

Have anyone met them in some way ? And where can I get like a booklet on Buckingham palace or any booklet on the royal family I want to learn as much I can on Buckingham palace before visiting and touring it.

What are the other nicknames
Prince William-"wombat"/"wills"
Prince Henry - "Harry"
Princess Diana -"di"
Queen Elizabeth -"lillibet"
Princess catherine - "Kate"
....

I am just curious to know which relative is the Quern and the rest of the royal family closest to?

Random (and Quirky) Facts About the Windsors

I'm not sure if such a thread exists, or even if it's OK to start one with such a title, but I came across an article that I found interesting and wanted to share. I didn't know some of these things (and some I truly didn't need/want to know), but the world would be pretty boring if everyone were like everyone else.

Great thread and a nice article. Learnt quite a few new things about the royal family.

From the article:
Quote:
When the Queen was born her parents wanted to name her Anne but King George V forbade it.
Does anyone know whether this is true, and if yes, why did George V veto the name?

I've always thought it was Princess Margaret who was supposed to be named Anne.

My dear Archduchess Zelia,

You are correct. For some reason which was not clear, George V did not like the name "Anne" or "Ann." He and Mary wanted the baby to be named Margaret after "Margaret of Scotland" a royal ancestress and in the end he won.

I'm not sure how many of these I believe... In one sentence it talks about Charles' nightshirts and then says he always sleeps on the nude. Hmmmmm

Yeah, that was the one I didn't quite believe, or want to know.

Some great anecdotes about the RF - I love that Queen Victoria smoked marijuana for cramps; that lady knew a thing or two about medicinal pot and was certainly ahead of her time.

That was definitely an interesting one. But if it helped with the pain, and didn't harm anything else, then all was well. Still the thought of Queen Victoria a little high is an amusing image .

It's my opinion that it says a lot about people which paper they prefer to read.

I don't know if this really is general knowledge, but if it isn't and you were to offer a qualified guess, which paper do you believe is the preferred of.

QEII?

Prince Phillip?

PoW Charles?

Lady Camilla?

Harry?

William?

Catherine?

And why?

ADDED: This clip provides a clear defintion of who reads the various British papers: (From 1:04).

On June 27, 1727 George II opened the first Parliament of his reign. In its very first sitting, Parliament voted a rise in the King's civil list financial settlement. George was granted 800,000 pounds a year. A further 100,000 pounds entitlement was granted for Queen Caroline.
