Think the royal baby excitement is over? Not by a long shot. There’s the first portrait photos, the christening, the first steps, the schooling, and so on and so forth for the next 78 years or so.

Watch: Prince Harry jokes about the royal baby on a red carpet!


But the first new development is an official nickname! George Alexander Louis is a wonderful name and all, but it’s kind of a mouthful and not especially cute. Prince Charles and wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, made an appearance at the Whitstable Oyster Festival and told many well-wishers that the baby will be called “Georgie.”

OK! News: How did Kate Middleton’s hometown celebrate the royal birth?

Georgie Porgie! How cute. How perfectly English. We can already see a teenaged Prince George despising this childhood moniker and trying to shed it, but until then—long live Georgie!
