Will’s Adorable Pet Name For Kate Confirmed
One really should be taking this bit of news seriously and focus more on being angry at News of The World for allegedly hacking the royal family’s phones. One really should.
Here’s the thing. When the voice mails from Kate Middleton’s mobile phone contain the sweetest messages from her beloved, Prince William, it’s very difficult to do anything but swoon.
“Hi baby,” William said in one 2006 message while at Sandhurst. “I had a busy day today again.”
“I’ve been running around the woods of Aldershot chasing shadows and getting terribly lost, and I walked into some other regiment’s ambush, which was slightly embarrassing because I nearly got shot. Not by live rounds but by blank rounds, which would be very embarrassing though.
‘Um, er, yeah, I’m off on exercise tomorrow morning, just for the day, and then I’m back on Saturday first thing, erm, so I probably won’t be able to speak to you tomorrow night.”
“All right, baby, lots of love, um, speak to you soon. Bye bye.”
Prosecutors read transcriptions from messages William left for Catherine while they were still dating in 2006, most of which ended up as a story in one of Rupert Murdoch’s papers.
According to the Daily Mail, former News of the World editor Andy Coulson is being accused of hacking into voice mails between 2000 and 2006, along with former News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks.
News of the World ceased publication in July 2011 amid backlash from the hacking scandal.
More messages from William to Catherine:
- “My head’s all right. I’ve just picked up your message. Oh, my little babykins! I hope you are all right. I just tried ringing you but I do not thing you would pick it up because it is 5.35am in the morning so it is probably not a very good time to ring you. I hope you are all right.”
- “Hello baby, it’s me. Sorry I did not ring you earlier and tell you what I was doing. Been a bit of a nightmare day. I think I would just about be finished in a minute. It has just gone six but I don’t think I will be able to leave here til about seven. I have got stuff here to do, bits and pieces, but I should be able to leave at about 7 at the least. Crack on with what you have got to do and don’t worry about me . I will give you a buzz later. I always thought you were going to the gym. Hopefully I can come and see you. I will give you an update. Planning on definitely coming out, hopefully by sevenish, so I will be with you by quarter to eight at the latest. Hope that’s all right, baby. I can’t wait to see you. Lots of love and I’ll speak to you later.”
- “Hi honey, it’s me. I’m back in the small land of Sandhurst. A couple of pretty nasty days on exercise. Decided to just enjoy them. I am feeling a bit shitty at the moment but hope you are OK. Lovely to speak to you … You are probably very busy working but if there is any chance you are free, maybe later this afternoon or evening, I might be able to get out. I am going to try and go out beagling again and then come to you afterwards.”
William and Catherine broke up briefly in the spring of 2007 before reuniting weeks later. They married on April 29th, 2011 in Westminster Abbey.
