Inside the Cambridges ‘code names’ they have for each other including George calling himself Archie

The Cambridge family have a set of 'code names' they use for one another, with Kate Middleton and Prince George both previously giving theirs away accidentally.

Prince William, 39, and Kate, 40, are believed to both have fake names that they use will out and about, and it appears they've also given Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three, their own fake aliases too.

The Duchess of Cambridge once gave away one of her secret names during a shopping trip in Wales, when she and Prince William were residing in the country after getting married.

The couple rented a farmhouse near the seaside resort of Rhosneigr in Anglesey as, at the time, William was based as a search and rescue pilot at nearby RAF Valley.

While they lived there, Kate was often spotted visiting local supermarkets, such as Tesco, and was once seen shopping at a watersports store.

At the shop, Kate was about to purchase a wetsuit when she realised she'd forgotten her purse, and was unable to pay.

Following the embarrassing moment, Kate then asked the shopkeeper Dave Buckland, who did not recognise the Duchess, if she could reserve the product and come back for it after she had collected her purse.

Dave agreed, and then asked Kate for a name, to which she replied “Mrs Cambridge”.

An unnamed source, who witnessed the events unfold, told theMail On Sundayback in 2012: “He was looking straight at her and actually commented that it was quite an unusual surname.

“He hadn’t a clue who she was. She just smiled and said she’d be back. He hasn’t lived it down since.”

Kate isn't the only royal to have accidentally revealed a secret name, with her eldest son Prince George allegedly giving one of his away previously.

Back in 2019, George was spotted playing with his siblings in the Berkshire countryside, during a day out with his grandmother Carole Middleton.

A member of the public spotted the future king playing, and he soon came over to pet her dog, she told The Sun.

The woman asked George his name, and his response took her by surprise. She revealed: "I was asked by a police minder not to take a photo of the children, which I didn't, but George started stroking my dog. Just to be friendly I engaged in a bit of small talk and I asked George what his name was, even though obviously I knew it.

"To my astonishment he said 'I'm called Archie' with a big smile on his face. I don't know why he calls himself Archie but kids often play with their names and I think it's lovely."

There's many explanations as to why Prince George used a different name, but Marie Claire explained that his nickname was established way before his cousin, Archie, son of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, was born.

While George could have been simply playing around, there's also a possibility that he had been told to use the name for security purposes so he can’t be as easily identified.

His parents reportedly have secret names that they use when they're on holiday or embarking on royal tours.

Prince William goes by the alias Danny Collins, while Kate is known as Daphne Clark, according to the Express.

The names are used as they both have the initials DC, which stands for Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
