Princess Diana had a very special relationship with her sons. She was always a caring mother to them and wanted to spend almost all of her time with William and Harry. Diana loved to have fun with her boys and even had a funny nickname for William.
Duke of Cambridge revealed his mom used to call him 'Wombat', which is still stuck to him. He believes she got the idea after their trip to Australia, where Diana absolutely loved these little animals and decided to give her oldest son a nickname based on their name.
It turns out, however, that 'Wombat' isn't the only playful name Diana used to call William.
Unusual nickname for William
In his book, Russian author Dmitrij Medvedev mentions another little-known nickname Princess Diana used to lovingly call William.
Duke of Cambridge was very close to his mother growing up, some could say he was one of her best friends, which is why she would sometimes refer to him as "my little wise old man."
We all know that Diana was often going through rough times when her sons were young, so the company of young William was at times her only solace.
