Thought Kate Middleton and Prince William were far too busy and important to have silly nicknames for each other? Think again. Because their pet-names they use in their relationship have been 'revealed' - and they're very, uhm, odd.

The Duchess of Cambridge reportedly jokingly calls her husband 'baldy', and he in turn refers to her as the 'DoD', or Duchess of 'Dolittle'.

Kate's nickname for Wills came from the fact he “complained about her endless mane of hair [so ‘baldy’] has been her sharp retort," a source told The Sun.

And William's name for Kate could be another dig - as she was reportedly criticised by the Queen for not having a full time career before she got married.

A royal source added: “The royals are not very good at communicating with one another so this is one way around it.  Nicknames are a way of taking the family tension out of things.

“They can also be a rather childlike family. They love to play games and they give each other silly presents. I think it’s because they have to be so earnest in their public lives.

“Royals have always played in private. So William and Kate are really carrying on a long held tradition.

This royal nickname revelation comes just days after it was reported that Prince George told a dog-walker in a park that his name was 'Archie' while he was out with his grandmother Carole Middleton and his sister Charlotte.

It is not known whether the eldest of William and Kate's children, five, was given the nickname by his family, or whether he chose it for himself.

The unnamed dog-walker said, according to The Sun: “I was asked by a police minder not to take a photo of the children, which I didn’t, but George started stroking my dog. Just to be friendly I engaged in a bit of small talk and I asked George what his name was, even though obviously I knew it.

"To my astonishment he said ‘I’m called Archie’ with a big smile on his face. I don’t know why he calls himself Archie but kids often play with their names and I think it’s lovely.”
