Prince Philip’s Brutal Nickname For Meghan Markle Revealed

A royal commentator revealed that Prince Philip had a rather direct nickname for the Duchess of Sussex, and it wasn't particularly flattering.

The nickname hinted at a comparison to Wallis Simpson, the contentious spouse of former King Edward VIII, highlighting similarities between Meghan Markle and Wallis, both being American and divorced when they entered the royal fold.

Prince Philip reportedly called Meghan by a name that alluded to this association.

Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII

Wallis Simpson, an American divorcée who became the Duchess of Windsor, emerged as one of the most contentious royal figures in modern history when King Edward VIII chose to abdicate the throne in December 1936, just months into his reign, to marry her.

Back then, members of the royal family were barred from marrying someone who had been divorced—a regulation that remained in place until 2002, when it was amended, coincidentally just three years prior to the wedding of Prince Charles and Camilla, as noted by the Royal Observer.

After King Edward and Wallis Simpson tied the knot, they needed the approval of his brother, the newly crowned King George VI, to return home, as there were concerns that their presence might spark public unrest, according to Vogue.

Throughout their years in exile, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor remained in the spotlight, with one of their most controversial moments happening in 1937 during a visit to Nazi Germany. They were captured in photographs giving the infamous Nazi salute upon meeting Adolf Hitler.
