What do you think Prince William's nickname for his lady love Kate Middleton is? Snookiwookums? Love muffin? My Principessa? Lil tatertot? Sex monkey? Good guesses but alas -- no.
Apparently the Duke Calls his Duchess "Babykins"! Who knew? The News of the World -- that's who! During the lawsuit, the former British tabloid who allegedly hacked the phones of several leaders and celebrities, including the royals, lawyers played private phone messages from Prince William to his then-girlfriend from 2006 in which the prince refers to his paramour by nickname.
"Babykins, just tried ringing you, hope you're alright," William said in a voice mail message. We love that Willy calls her Babykins! Too cute!
In another, more alarming message, the prince reveals he almost got shot while doing officer training in Sandhurst back in 2006.
"Hi baby. Um, sorry, I've just got back off my night navigation exercise … I've been running around the woods of Aldershot chasing shadows and getting horribly lost, and I walked into some other regiment's ambush, which was slightly embarrassing because I nearly got shot. Not by live rounds, but by blank rounds, which would have been very embarrassing, though."
Yikes! We are definitely glad the royal made it out alive!
These messages are the first confirmation that Middleton's phone had been hacked by the disgraced and now defunct News of the World.
Now we just have to wonder what Kate the Great's nickname for her hubby is?! The Balding Eagle? Prince Sexy? Prince Charming My Pants Off?
