And it’s pretty hilarious.
Royal family members often use code names, allowing them to be spoken about under the radar, whether by their security teams or their inner friendship circles.
It emerged earlier this year that both Prince William and Prince Harry used code names during their early twenties, to allow friends to talk about them or their relationships without members of the public or press finding out.
Their choices? Prince William went for ‘Steve’ and Prince Harry went a little more curve ball, opting for ‘Spike’.
Yes, Prince Harry is referred to by some people as Spike and it’s hilarious.
In fact, the royal reportedly even set up social media accounts as Spike, using the pseudonym, Spike Wells.
This week, his code name resurfaced, when his brother Prince William attended the BAFTA awards with his wife Kate Middleton.
As the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge talked to guests after the ceremony, one BAFTA winner called Spike Lee couldn’t help but bring up his issue with Prince Harry’s code name, asking William to pass a message on to his younger brother.
