Prince Charles has a very sweet nickname for Meghan Markle

And it's too much.

Meghan Markle has officially been a royal for one month, with her and Prince Harry receiving a royal title from the Queen as a wedding gift, becoming the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Since the nuptials however, the public has been far more concerned with what Meghan gets called in private, with the 36-year-old seeming to have a catalogue of nicknames.

While Harry calls her ‘Meg’ and mum Doria refers to her as ‘Flower’ – yet another reason to love Doria Ragland, Prince Charles’ nickname for the Duchess might just be our favourite yet.

Yes, that’s right.

We knew Meghan had a close relationship with her father-in-law, with the future King even walking her down the aisle in the place of her own dad, but we didn’t know just quite how fond of Meghan Prince Charles was until we heard his nickname for her.

The name? Tungsten.

While it might seem strange that she’s been named after a strong metal, according to the Mail, there’s a very sweet explanation behind it.

‘Prince Charles admires Meghan for her strength and the backbone she gives Harry, who needs a tungsten-type figure in his life as he can be a bit of a softy,’ a source reportedly told the tabloid.

It looks like Meghan is well and truly settled in the royal family then.
