It's little similar to the Elizabeth II's nickname - Lillibet.

Diana had a crush on Prince Charles when she was a teenager so her friends started calling her Duch, short for Duchess. They always liked calling her that because it was a royal rank and she always said she wanted to marry Charles one day. I think this is expained in Diana her true story.

Well, Andrew Morton wrote in Diana: Her True Story that Prince Charles and Camilla's pet names were Fred and Gladys. But James Whitaker and others say the GF was actually for "Girl Friday," which Prince Charles apparently called Camilla. These things don't make much sense. I just roll my eyes and think, Oh lord! I can't believe people are already saying Prince William calls Catherine Babykins! Do you think he does, that he would really call her that with witnesses?!

The Princess Royal is "Prince Philip in a skirt!" Everyone knows that!

I found a new royal nickname I love: Ama. It is the nickname of Princess Catharina-Amalia that was used by Princess Maxima and Princess Alexia during Sunday's photosession in Lech, Austria. I wonder if Alexia gave Amalia that nickname herself-awww.

VictoriaRomanov had asked who gave the Princess Royal the name of Princess Grumpy. I am not sure if I remember this exactly, but I think it was given to her by Fleet Street, or perhaps by the American press when she and Prince Charles visited the US in the early 70s. She had a sour face in some pictures and was criticized for not giving a good impression. I don't know if it was fair or not. It's just what I remember reading. I believe this "incident" was recounted in Kitty Kelly's book on the royals (a horrendous book, by the way, very poorly sourced and unoriginal in its entire content.)

Maybe this came from Morton's book, but during the engagement, Diana found cufflinks (?) Camilla had given Charles engraved w/ F&G for Fred and Gladys.

Cool

When he was Prince of Wales, the eventual George IV was called Prinny. He was also called the Prince of Whales because of his size.

George III and Queen Charlotte's first daughter whose name was also Charlotte was called 'Royal' although she was not officially given the title of Princess Royal until 1789.

Another of their daughter's Mary, was called Minny.

Both Edward VII and George VI were called Bertie. Edward VII was also nicknamed 'Tum Tum' but not in his hearing, well not if you wanted to remain in his friendship.

And apparently Charles Fox (a political leader of the time) called George III 'Satan', obviously not to his face!

Tsarina Alexandra of Russia was "Sunny" and "Alicky"

Her mother called her sunny because she was always smiling and happy, but after her mother died she became very cold when not around her family and most intimate friends.

All the Romanovs had some nickname. All of them were very sweet and I actually like them a lot. We'll see some of them:

Nicholas II: Nicky
Empress Maria Feodorovna: Minnie.
Nicholas Alexandrovich (Nicholas II's uncle): Nicolasha.
Michael Alexandrovich (Nicholas II's younger brother): Misha.
Elizabeth Feodorovna (Alix sister): Ella.
Olga Nicholaievna: Olya; Olishka.
Tatiana Nicholaievna: Tanya; Tanushka.
Maria Nicholaievna: Mashka; "Little Bow-Wow".
Anastasia Nicholaievna: Nastya; Nastenka; Natasha; Malenkaya; the Imp.
Alexis Nicholaievich: Alexei; Alyosha; Alyoshenka; Sunbeam.

I was a little reluctant over the fact of posting the name "Alexei" as a surname, since some people is actually using it as his name, saying that "Alexis" is only an English version of Alexei. But a friend of mine, who is of Russian origine, said me that "Alexis" is the correct name and "Alexei" only the common Russian nickname to Alexis. I think I must believe him, not only for he speaks currently Russian to his family, but because his own name is Alexis and her granny used to call him "Alexei"...

Some other Russian person here to affirm or deny this info? I'm very interested in Alexis REAL name!

Vanesa.

Humm...I don't know. This nickname seems to be very inappropiate to Princess Anne. She is always smiling and when she was a little girl she appears in photos even laughing frankly...

Well, a temporary tag assigned by a journalist isn't what I'd call a nickname.

To me, a nickname is one that is used widely and over an extended period of time, especially if used by friends and relatives.

This is such a great forum! I never thought that royals could have nicknames, even though they are real people just like us. You don't think about stuff like this sometimes.

I'm not Russian but Russian is sort of my first language and I lived in Russian for quite a long time, so I guess I can answer your question.

There is no such name as "Alexis" in Russian, the proper name is "Alexei".
Tsarevich Alexei Nikolaevich Romanov was the proper name for him (Цесаревич Алексей Николаевич in Russian).
His nicknames were just "Baby" when he was born.
Later he was affectionately referred to as Alyosha (Алёша) and Lyoshka (Лёшка).
