Kate Middleton Reportedly Has A Nickname For Prince William And People Think Is Quite "Harsh"

May 17, 2019

Many couples have fun and endearing nicknames for each other and it sounds like the same holds true for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The couple, who have been married for eight years and been together for even longer, still seem to be happily in love. And it makes sense to wonder if they have special names for each other.

According to reports, Kate's nickname for William is based on his receding hairline.

Will's hair timeline

According to the Hollywood Reporter, William began losing his hair in his early 20s and over the years, this has continued to be more visible. This trait, which happens to run in the family, is one that the royal doesn't seem to be ashamed of.

A special nickname

The UK Sun reported that the Duchess often referred to her husband as 'Baldy' playfully. The publication claimed they heard this from an unidentified source, who said the name came about after the Duke complained about her long hair. Evidently, Kate's quick retort was to call her husband "Baldy".

Even though this was very likely done in jest, some people jokingly pointed out that Kate's choice of nickname might be a little mean. This was based on the idea that William might be feeling insecure about his hairline.

It does seem like the nickname was all in good fun; though; and we doubt Prince William was offended.

Kate has a nickname, too

In her 2017 biography “Harry: Life, Loss, and Love”, royal author Katie Nicholl reportedly revealed the special name that William might be calling his wife.

She wrote that Prince Harry once attempted to mimic his brother by jokingly referring to Kate as "Babykins".

While these nicknames have never been officially confirmed by the royals, it isn't a stretch to imagine Will and Kate as the type of couple that has pet names for each other.
