But we love it!

Royals - they're just like us. Sure, they may live in palaces, travel in carriages and wear tiaras on the regular, but when it comes to family life, they're just normal people.

Two of the most relatable royal family members are of course Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, now known officially as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

While the laid back couple is now required to be a bit more formal since gaining more of an official title (no hand holding, guys!), they are still the same old Harry and Meghan behind closed doors, melting our hearts with their refreshingly touching relationship.

We all know Harry refers to his bride as 'Meg' and the former Suits actress revealed her nickname for Harry in her wedding speech, reportedly referring to the 33-year-old as 'My Prince'.

But it seems that Harry has another nickname, with this one given to him by Meghan's friends - and apparently, he's not thrilled about it.

According to Meghan's pal, Bryony Gordon, Harry was given the affectionate pet name 'Hazza' - something that the 33-year-old objected to at first.

Now however he is said to have come around albeit 'reluctantly' to his nickname.

Bryony then continued to open up about the newlyweds on Loose Women, insisting that hanging out with the recently-appointed Duchess is 'like chatting with a mate on the sofa with a cup of tea.'

Well it's safe to say we're fans of this new royal nickname!

Here's to Meghan and Hazza.
