Of course, while the world might call the Duchess of Cambridge by the nickname 'Kate,' her birth name is, in fact, Catherine.
However, during a trip to her old school St Andrews, in Pangbourne, Berkshire, in 2012, the 35-year-old mother-of-two admitted she used to be known by the name 'Squeak' among her classmates.
