[Daily Mirror] Meghan Markle has reportedly been given another unflattering nickname, but this time it’s from one of her in-laws.
The Duchess of Sussex has been labelled “The Degree Wife” by a senior royal, it has been claimed.
The Sunday Times also reports that the relative believes Prince Harry and Meghan’s marriage will “only last three years”.
The new claims come after Meghan was apparently nicknamed “The Difficult Duchess” by staff, while members of her own team apparently called her “Me-Gain.”
Rumours that she is difficult to work for were fuelled when three of her close team handed in their notice after just months in their roles.
Prince Charles also reportedly has an unusual nickname for his his daughter-in-law, and although it doesn’t sound particularly complimentary the meaning behind it is actually very sweet.
According to royal sources, the Prince of Wales calls Meghan “Tungsten,”because, just like the super-tough metal, she’s “tough and unbending.”
While this may not conjure up warm and fuzzy feelings, the name does come from a place of admiration.
After the original nickname rumours earlier this year many of Meghan’s friends spoke out to stand up for their pal, speaking about her kindness.
In an anonymous interview the group, who say they still speak to her daily, said she hasn’t changed describing her as “selfless” and the “best listener.”
One said: “Meg has silently sat back and endured the lies and untruths. We worry about what this is doing to her and the baby.”
Meghan and Harry married in May last year and welcomed their first child – Archie Harrison – in May.
The Duchess broke her maternity leave and made her first public appearance last weekend when she joined other members of the Royal Family for Trooping the Colour.
She smiled and waved to well-wishers on the balcony at Buckingham Palace on the special day, which marks the Queen’s official birthday.
BG Note: In the United States, earning a bachelor’s degree usually takes four years. In the United Kingdom, earning a bachelor’s degree usually takes three years. Thus, Degree Wife = three year marriage.
