King Charles and Queen Camilla were charmed by two delightful new nicknames this week, bestowed upon them by children from Sulivan Primary School in London during their visit to the Chelsea Flower Show.

The monarch was affectionately named 'King of the Compost' while his consort received the title 'Queen of the Bees' as they toured the 'RHS No Adults Allowed Garden', a special creation by the pupils.

The enchanting garden, crafted by Harry Holding and the school's students, featured a magical journey through diverse habitats including woodlands, meadows, and wetlands, all bursting with colour and dotted with oversized bog plants. Both royals were thoroughly impressed after chatting with the young designers, expressing their gratitude for the thoughtful nicknames, which King Charles humorously acknowledged as "quite right".

These aren't the first endearing nicknames for the royal pair; their grandchildren have also given them loving pet names over time. Notably, Camilla is adored as 'Gaga' by her own grandchildren, a name she has warmly encouraged the youngest members of the Royal Family to use as well, reports the Mirror.

Reflecting on her unique nickname, Camilla once confessed: "My own grandchildren call me GaGa. I don't know if it's because they think I am! It is funny but is still very sweet."

On the other hand, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have always referred to the King as 'Grandpa Wales', a tradition that was upheld by the late Queen Elizabeth, who called her own Grandfather George V 'Grandad England'.

Before her passing in September 2022, the late Queen also had an endearing nickname from her great-grandchildren, with Prince George notably calling her his "Gan-Gan."

However, this isn't the most unusual name the Queen has been given by her grandchildren, as Prince William once famously named her Gary after struggling to pronounce Granny!

As per the Daily Mail, the peculiar name came about when a young William was playing at Buckingham Palace, took a tumble and cried out for help. But instead of shouting for 'Granny', he called for 'Gary'- causing confusion among those present.

The publication reports: "A guest who went to help asked who Gary was, assuming it must be a member of the royal household. 'I'm Gary,' responded the Queen. "'He hasn't learned to say Granny yet'. "
