Watch: Kate Middleton Addressed Prince Charles Using His Unofficial Title During the G7 Summit

Kate Middleton appears to have an affectionate (yet relatable!) nickname for her father-in-law, Prince Charles, who recently became a grandfather for the fifth time.

Kate and Prince Charles along with their spouses joined Queen Elizabeth on Friday in welcoming world leaders to the G-7 summit. In a video from their arrival, Prince Charles turns around to chat with Kate and Prince William. Kate appears to greet him with a warm smile and the words, "Hello, Grandpa!" rather than his more formal title.

Kate, 39, may also have called Charles "Papa," the name his sons Prince William and Prince Harry use for him.

Meanwhile, the Queen was all smiles as she said hello to Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his new wife, Carrie.

In another snap from the photo shoot, Prince Charles sweetly holds the hand of Louis, who sits in the arms of Kate.

Prince Charles just became a grandfather for the fifth time with the arrival of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's daughter Lilibet "Lili" Diana on June 4.

During a speech he gave last week at a carmakers' factory in Cowley, Charles addressed Lili's birth by calling it "such happy news."

As he spoke about innovation and sustainability at BMW's Mini factory, he said, "The development of technology like electric vehicles, or green hydrogen for that matter for heavy transport, is vital for maintaining the health of our world for future generations, something I am only too aware of today, having recently become a grandfather for the fifth time."

"Such happy news really does remind one of the necessity of continued innovation in this area - especially around sustainable battery technology - in view of the legacy we bequeath to our grandchildren," he continued.
