The six-year-old daughter of Prince William and Kate Middleton may be fourth in line to the throne, but Princess Charlotte has nicknames like anybody else. Among her nicknames are Lottie and ‘Mignonette’, but the one she reportedly earned while at nursery is especially adorable.
According to a royal expert, the young Princess’ nickname at nursery was ‘Warrior Princess’ due to her being ‘feisty’ and a ‘tomboy’.
Charlotte went to Willcocks Nursery near Kensington Palace for 18 months before joining her older brother Prince George at Thomas’s Battersea in 2019. Royal expert and author Katie Nicholl wondered if the nickname would follow the young Princess to school.

Princess Charlotte is also known as Lottie and ‘mignonette’, according to reports
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, she said: “The other nickname that she had when she was at Willcocks Nursery, which was up until just before the summer, was Warrior Princess. I’m wondering if that might be a nickname that will stick with her.
“Apparently she earned that nickname because obviously she is a Princess, but she’s quite a tomboy. She loves climbing trees and she’s very much an adventurer, she was quite known for her feisty personality.”

Other reports suggest that family and friends shorten Charlotte’s name to Lottie.
While a video clip from 2019 of the Cambridge children playing in a garden co-designed by their mother for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show suggests Prince William has his own affectionate nickname for his daughter.
In the clip, William can be heard calling Charlotte ‘Mignonette’, a French term which comes from ‘mignon’ which means cute, sweet, or dainty.
