The Captain and the Commando

Pippa Middleton, the curvy bombshell sister of the new royal princess of England and Duchess of Cambridge, might appreciate being given a new nickname. After all, our cousins in Italy have been all to eager to explain to the sister-in-law of Prince William what her name actually means in Italian (we won't repeat it here...).

But it does come as some suprise to learn from the Daily Mailthat the person bestowing a certain new pet-name on Pippa is none other than Prince Harry himself.

Reports persist that the two have grown closer since the royal wedding with Pippa remaining determinedly single at present and Prince Harry's romance with Chelsea looking decidely less than red-hot.

'Pippa apparently calls the Prince ‘Captain’ - which is his military rank - while he calls her ‘Commando’, in reference to rumours that she was not wearing any underwear on her sister’s wedding day.'

'They speak on the phone all the time and have met up at least five times since the wedding, once for tea at his Clarence House apartments... She thinks he’s got a really cheeky sense of humour.’

'They have also gone more public with their budding friendship. The pair turned heads when they turned up at The Troubadour in Chelsea for a hushed tete-a-tete. They stayed in the royal haunt for two hours.'

Is the world ready for another royal wedding?
