Camilla’s son reveals what his children call their step-grandfather Prince Charles
Tom has spoken highly of his stepfather in the past saying that he has “always adored” the Prince of Wales and thinks he is a “kind, good, and lovely man” who “will make a fantastic king.” Tom also told The Times that his children are close with their step-grandfather and call him “Umpa.”
And if you’re wondering what Camilla’s grandchildren call her, well it’s a name a popular singer goes by as well.

What Prince William’s children call Prince Charles
Turns out Prince William’s children also have an adorable name for their grandfather.
According to the Daily Mail, prior to Prince Louis’ birth, Prince George and Princess Charlotte had established how to refer to their grandad and began calling him “Grandpa Wales” because he is, of course, the Prince of Wales. The children seem to be taking a page out of Queen Elizabeth II’s book as she also had a cute nickname for her granddad, King George V, when she was growing up and used to call him “Grandpa England.”
Prince Charles has previously spoken about what it’s like being a grandfather telling Hello!: “It’s a different part of your life. The great thing is to encourage them. Show them things to take their interest. My grandmother did that, she was wonderful. It is very important to create a bond when they are very young.”
