Does William have a sweet French nickname for Charlotte? Royal fans are convinced the prince calls her ‘mignonette’ in a video of the family playing in Kate’s nature garden
- Cambridges released videos of themselves playing as a family at Chelsea
- Fans claim William calls daughter Charlotte ‘mignonette’ in one of the clips
- The sweet nickname is a diminutive form of the French ‘mignon’, meaning ‘cute’
- However others think the royal father was simply asking: ‘Have you been on it?’
Royal fans are convinced this clip of the Cambridges playing reveals Prince William’s affectionate nickname for his daughter Charlotte.
The video, released by Kensington Palace on Instagram, shows the royal father-of-three with his wife Kate, 37, and their three children in the Duchess’ Back To Nature garden at the Chelsea Flower Show last Sunday.
While most of the clip is subtitled, there is one short section of William speaking to Charlotte while on the rope swing that is missed out.
Dozens of social media users took to the comment section to say they think William calls his daughter ‘mignonette’. The word is a diminutive form of the French ‘mignon’, meaning ‘cute’.
However others believe the Duke of Cambridge, 36, simply asks: ‘Have you been on this yet?’

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge brought their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis to try out Kate’s Back to Nature Garden at the weekend
A video clip of the family exploring the Chelsea Flower Show garden shows Prince William swinging from the rope swing and inviting his daughter Charlotte to give him a push
One Twitter user asked: ‘Anyone notice right before he asked Charlotte to push him, he called her by a lovely nickname. Someone from KP IG’s (Kensington Palace Instagram’s) comment section suggested William called her “Mignonette” which means “delicate”.’
Another tweeted: ‘Mignonette I think – cutie. Not 100 per cent though.’
Though one tweeter was less convinced, claiming the prince simply asked: ‘Have you been on here?’
And one Instagram user wrote: ‘I hear the end of the question “Have you been on it?” With us hearing the “been on it” part.’ That would also make sense, given that he then asks for a push. (Charlotte would rather run off to do her own thing, of course.)’
It wouldn’t be the first time the Cambridges have used nicknames to refer to each other.
Many Twitter users claimed to have heard Prince William refer to his daughter as ‘Mignonette’, which is French for cute
Back in January, Prince George revealed his nickname is ‘Archie’ when he struck up a conversation with a stranger on a walk with his grandmother Carole Middleton in Berkshire.
The five-year-old started talking to the woman while stroking her dog after playing with his younger sister, Charlotte, in a stream.
His revelation sparked rumours earlier this month that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were inspired to use the moniker for their son, Archie Harrison.

One Twitter user was less convinced that Prince William used a French-inspired nickname
When she was pregnant with her eldest, Kate referred to him as ‘our little grape’. Prince George is now occasionally known as PG Tips or just ‘Tips’ after the brand of tea.
She also allegedly has a pet name for her husband – believed to ‘Prince Baldy’, cheekily referring to his thinning crown.
Meanwhile William apparently calls Kate ‘DoD’, the ‘Duchess of Do-little’ – a little unfair considering the amount of charity work the royal regularly undertakes.
The sweet video of the Cambridge family also featured Prince George awarding his mother Kate a ’20 out of 10′ for her efforts on the Back to Nature garden.

The Duchess of Cambridge is seen bending down as she plays with one-year-old Prince Louis and exclaims: ‘How amazing is that?’ when awarded a 20 out of 10 for her garden by her eldest son
Prince William, who appears pleased with the answer, laughs and replies: ‘Twenty! That’s pretty good. I think Mummy’s done well.’
The Duchess of Cambridge, 37, is then seen bending down as she plays with one-year-old Prince Louis and exclaims: ‘How amazing is that?’
During the visit to the garden, a barefoot George and Charlotte were seen dangling their legs over a stream, while an excited Louis ran along a wooden path carrying a branch as the Duke of Cambridge looked on smiling.
