The Queen announced today that her husband Prince Philip died at the age of 99. The ‘perfect couple’ had been married for 73 years, with Her Majesty always referring to him as her rock.

And as we take a look back at the royal couple’s happy marriage, The Duke of Edinburgh’s sweet nickname for his wife has been revealed.

The pet name came to light after the film The Queen was released in 2006, where in one scene, Philip says to Her Majesty, played by Dame Helen Mirren, “Move over, Cabbage.”

It’s an unexpected nickname for the head of the monarchy. However its not the only nickname she’s had.

The Queen’s full name is Elizabeth Alexandra Mary, but as a little girl, the Queen reportedly referred to herself as ‘Tillabet’.

As she grew up, she became known as ‘Lilibet’ among her family and close friends, which is a nickname still used today.

The Queen announced her husband’s passing earlier today (April 9) with a statement that read: “It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen announces the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

“His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle.

“Further announcements will made in due course.

“The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss.”

The Duke of Edinburgh had been due to turn 100 in June. The Queen is expected to now start an immediate eight day period of mourning.

The entire Royal Family are expected to enter an official grieving period for 30 days following these eight days.
