In the British royal household, Prince George and Princess Charlotte do not need to adhere to royal titles while addressing the Queen, even though she is pretty much addressed formally by mostly everyone in the world. Princess Charlotte and Prince George mostly find themselves being exempt from rules usually followed by almost all other people in the world, even when it comes to the Duchess of Cornwall. Apparently, as per Good Housekeeping, Charlotte and George do not address the Queen and the possible future queen with the traditional "grandma" and "granny."



 

"My own grandchildren call me GaGa," Camilla told the Daily Mail, shortly after Prince George's birth. "I don’t know if it’s because they think I am! It is funny but is still very sweet." Before the arrival of the tiny tots at Kensington Palace, Camilla already had five grandchildren of her own via her first marriage to Andrew Parker Bowles. Her son with Andrew, Tom Parker Bowles, has two kids while his sister Laura Lopes has three. 

As a matter of fact, Laura's daughter Eliza even served as a bridesmaid at the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding!

The marriage of the second in line to the British throne was led by the Archbishop of Canterbury and was attended by 1900 guests, including foreign Royal family members and heads of state. Thousands of well-wishers from around the world have also flocked to London to witness the spectacle and pageantry of the Royal Wedding.

Although its still not that clear as to whether George and Charlotte adopted the same nickname, their father, Prince William, did give us a hint. For the documentary Diana, 'Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy', by ITV,  William spoke about how he regularly reminds his children of "two grandmothers in their lives:" both Carole Middleton and the late Diana, Princess of Wales. 

Therefore, it is but obvious that the children use another familiar term to describe Prince Charles' second wife. Camilla is quite a hit with children. According to the new biography 'The Duchess: Camilla Parker Bowles and the Love Affair That Rocked the Crown', it is said that every year in June, Camilla hosts a massive party for both her grandchildren and the grandchildren of friends.

"In 2016 there were about 90 children tucking into sandwiches, cakes, and jellies and roaring around the garden at Clarence House, having tugs of war and watching spellbound as magicians did tricks and entertainers made them laugh," author Penny Junor wrote.

Guess what's their nickname for the Queen?  ‘Gan-Gan,’” Kate said, adding that the Queen totally dotes on her youngest descendants. “She always leaves a little gift or something in their room when we go and stay, and that just shows her love for the family.”
