King Charles III’s nickname for Meghan Markle revealed

She had nerves of steel.

King Charles III’s nickname for his daughter-in-law Meghan Markle proves how much respect he once had for her.

Royal expert Katie Nicholl reveals in her book “The New Royals” which the British monarch called the Duchess of Sussex “Tungsten”, which is a hard steel gray metal of the third transition series which has the highest melting point of all metallic elements.

“Charles is said to have nicknamed his future daughter-in-law ‘Tungsten’ because of her tenacity and resilience,” writes Nicholl (via “Entertainment Tonight”).

Nicholl explains that Markle’s nickname was apparently born when the ‘Suits’ alum showed resilience while she and Prince Harry Appearance in 2018 with Prince William and Kate Middleton at the Forum of the Royal Foundation.

“It was, according to an aide, the time when William and Kate, who were very pregnant, realized they needed to up their game,” writes Nicholl. “The Cambridges [now the Prince and Princess of Wales] had already signaled their intention to be more than ‘ornamental royals’ and had, together with Harry, made their Heads Together mental health campaign a huge success.

She continues: “But Meghan was the star of the quartet. She was polite, passionate and funny, using all of her television skills to present her case. It was a wake-up call for William and Kate when they realized Meghan was very impressive, very confident and very capable, according to a source.

While Charles, 73, may have used the term of endearment four years ago, it’s unclear if he still calls Markle, 41, “Tungsten” after she and Harry, 38, resigned from their royal duties in 2020 and moved to California, where they reside with their two children: Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1.

Tensions within the royal family appeared to remain high after the death of Queen Elizabeth II in September when Markle reportedly asked to meet the new king and purify the air.

Despite the joint appearances, it looks like Harry and Markle still has to make peace with his father as they quickly returned to the United States after the end of the official mourning period for the late monarch.

Estranged brothers William and Harry are said to have did not bury the hatchet neither did their dark reunion in the UK.

The Queen died aged 96 on September 8 after reigning for 70 years. His cause of death was revealed to be “old age”.
