We all know that Prince Philip has a quirky sense of humor, but nobody expected him to call the Queen this!

Reportedly, the recently retired Duke of Edinburg calls his beloved wife by a famous vegetable, and it’s all been revealed in the film The Queen.

“Move over, cabbage,” Prince Philip says to the monarch in the movie after shuffling into the bed. Screenwriter Peter Morgan confirmed that he got an exclusive information that this is indeed the Duke’s nickname for the Queen. “I inquired in royal circles and was told on very good authority that that is what the Duke sometimes calls the Queen,” Morgan revealed.

When you think about it, the nickname probably comes from the French term ‘mon petit chou,’ which translates to ‘my little cabbage’ in English.
