William even had "Big Willy" (or big Will) on his own mug when the media were allowed to photograph him at work at RAF Valley.

I don't think I have ever heard a British person call their partner 'baby' or 'honey' 

Trust me it happens (I personally hate 'baby' or 'babe'- reminds me of the film Babe with the pig!). I think both affection names have been adopted from popular culture in the States. "Hon" (short for honey), "love" or even "Darling" (mainly used by posher people IMO" are more common, and "Dear" is usually used by people of the older generations. "Babykins" is unusual and my God so cringey!!

Yep I'm with SvenskaSarah, though I must admit the words do look weird when written down! It's better spoken. Am not keen on them myself. My sister might call me "hon" (pronounced hun) so it's not a male-female thing. "Love" is very common and is fine, "darling" is fine as well. The only one that is off, as said, is "babykins". Yuk!
Babykins has always been what William calls Kate. He was heard saying "All right, Babykins?" when he was closing the car door for her as they left the hospital with George.
Supposedly she calls him "Big Willy"
Btw willy is a british term for male genitals.

Wonder if it was a gift . . .

He sounds rather sweet actually. And funnily enough quite a bit like Adrian Mole Laugh bounce

I could see him cheat during times of pressure but I could also see Kate being quite.. practical about it. Shes obviously very private. And values her family highly. I think she would have read him the riot act and he listened to her. I think she provides a stability he knows he needs. They may currently be quite workshy but building a solid family and securing a peaceful and stable childhood for their children is also work and their real work will likely take off when other people start retiring so in the end, I think its up to them how successful they will be.

Thanks. I have seen it on Twitter and Instagram posts (and I was confused by 'hun' because somebody told me this is what old English people call Germans but maybe that was a joke). I did not think I had heard it on tv etc. but my friend reminds me that people say it in TOWIE.

We've said that Harry got the worst of his mother's inclinations well maybe William got the best. Part of her charm was a certain humor and cheekiness it wasn't just empathy for life's most vulnerable. I remember seeing that long lens picture of William peeing near a fence on a long run or during a rugby game I can't remember. I mean it's not small so maybe they joke about that. If so that means William can be the brunt of a joke and that is a very good sign for him for the marriage and for his future he will be the goodhearted punchline more and more. Not vicious mostly just part of the job.

A man being willing for everyone to know that he's large down there does not in any way signify a willingness to be the brunt of jokes.
Don't get me wrong, William's part in the BBC's Big Night In showed that he was willing to be the brunt of loads of jokes on national television.
However calling a man "Big Willy" is a rather more explicit version of calling a woman "'Beautiful". It's a very flattering nickname. After all, just about all men want to be as large as possible I believe.

Indeed a good hearted joke for sure not one to make fun of him I worded that badly because I was also thinking that by virtue of his position he is the focus of jokes and that will continue and increase as he gets closer to the throne. Just look at what Charles has endured lol.

Charles though is easy to mock. He was never very attractive, though he's gotten better looking as he's aged. He was into things that were very fringe, though they've become mainstream. He was very self pitying, which is practically begging to be mocked.
William is a very bland, handsome man who supports exactly what causes are the most conventional. He's rather like the Queen in the sense that no one knows what he thinks about anything so everyone can project their own feelings on to him. I think that he'll be as much the focus of jokes as his grandmother was: not at all.

LOL, completely agree. It is a bit of humble-bragging to pretend not to be flattered by being called a handsome stud. A joke would be to call him Curly or Princess, or anything that mocks him personally.
