Kate Middleton and Prince William have a sweet nickname for their son. The nickname? “Tips.”
Prince George can be shortened to PG, and PG Tips is a kind of tea. And there you have it!
This fall, Middleton, shared how the kids would rather be in the sky these days.
The Duchess of Cambridge, 39, took a tour of RAF Brize Norton airbase this past Wednesday to thank members of teams who had helped evacuate thousands of people from Afghanistan. During the visit, Kate listened to stories from civilians and servicemen and women. In addition, she shared her children’s love for aviation.
“She did mention that her children are very interested in aircraft,” Loadmaster Sergeant Mark Curtis shared.
It will not come as a surprise to most that Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3, adore planes. They must get it from their dad.
The prince was a search and rescue captain in the Royal Air Force who spent several years at the very beginning of his marriage to Kate on the Isle of Anglesey in Wales.
Prince Harry also has a military background as a 10-year veteran of the war in Afghanistan.
“I honor those who have been lost and encourage support for the survivors and the families of those affected,” he said in a statement in June. “These workers put their lives on the line every day to make the world a safer place. This brutal act reminds us that we must stand in solidarity with humanitarian aid workers and the communities they serve.”
For royals, military service is a sacred honor for the royals.
That being said, George and Charlotte have both been introduced to plenty of planes and helicopters — including a few trips to Germany in both 2016 and 2017 where they were able to tour quite a few “iron birds.”
Wing Commander Kevin Latchman, who flew three planes out of Kabul, said the chance to welcome Kate to the base and to show her the C17 Globemaster plane was “fantastic, to be honest.”
He also noted how Operation Pitting, which brought 15,000 evacuees back to the U.K. was “a brilliant example of when we all come together, what we can deliver.”
He added, “The fact that’s been recognized on the royal level is brilliant, and it was lovely to meet the Duchess of Cambridge, very personable and clearly very interested in what we did.”
“The sight down the back of the airplane was phenomenal,” he continued. “A crowd of faces, and there was so many children, like half of all of those flights were with children and small babies,” Commander Latchman shared.
“And, you know, those children were just like our children getting on board a massive airplane, they were really excited. Whereas the adults were all more relieved, shocked and scared and wondering what was happening next.”
