Kate Middleton was spotted over the weekend at The Range in King's Lynn, Norfolk with her two eldest children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, doing some last minute shopping before the Christmas holiday. And while she was there, the adorable nickname that she calls her daughter was revealed, too.

Onlooker Sarah Daniels spotted the 36-year-old mother of three browsing the toy aisles of the department store. "As I was looking at the shelves I noticed a tall dark-haired lady further down the aisle and thought to myself ‘I recognize that face’," she explained to the Daily Mail.

According to Daniels, Prince George expressed interest in some dinosaur slim, though she was unable to register if the Duchess of Cambridge reacted to her eldest son's request. But that's not all that the teacher observed while shopping alongside Duchess Kate: she also overheard the sweet nickname with which Middleton called her only daughter.

At one point Princess Charlotte sat down on the ground and Daniels observed Duchess Kate, dressed in jeans, low-heeled boots, and a jacket say, "get up poppet."

"Poppet" is a popular nickname in the Cambridge household: Prince William was reportedly heard calling his wife "poppet" back in 2013 in front of photographers and reporters as they introduce Prince George to the world outside St. Mary's Hospital in London.

While Middleton's may not have indulged her childrens' requests for goodies in the toy aisle, there is another reason entirely that she could have been perusing at the Range: per royal tradition, the Windsors like to exchange gag gifts over Christmas. So while dinosaur slime may not have been snapped up, it's entirely possible that the Duchess of Cambridge was buying a cheeky gift a la her "grow a girlfriend" that she gave to her brother-in-law, Prince Harry, a few years ago.
