Within the British royal family there have been several the nicknames that have transcended the walls of Buckingham Palace and have become known to the general public.
The hit Netflix series The Crown resurrected some of them again, such as Lilibeth, the name with which those closest to Queen Elizabeth II addressed, or Gladys and Fred, as Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles were secretly called.
British royal house expert journalist Christine-Marie Liwag Dixon recently referred to on the show The List to the nickname with which Prince Charles refers to his daughter-in-law Meghan Markle: “Tungsten”.
The tungsten or tungsten it is a chemical element of the periodic table, but taken to this other context it is used to describe someone who demonstrates a resistant nature.
According to the expert, Charles of England uses this codename of Meghan Markle from a flattering way.
“Meghan Markle it has not been easy since she joined the royal family, “the journalist explained.” Not only has the press harassed her relentlessly, but she herself has commented that it didn’t feel like home“, has added.
In his opinion, “it is possible that the royal family did not approve Meghan and Harry retiring as royalty even though they did so to escape an environment that was clearly not good for their sanity. However, it seems that Prince Charles had a lot of respect for Meghan’s resilient nature, “said Christine-Marie Liwag Dixon.
“This is evident when they meet the secret nickname that she supposedly had for her: Tungsten, “a metal that, like Markle,” is tough and unyielding. ”
“Tungsten is the strongest natural metal on the planet. That makes it be a pretty good compliment taking all of this into account “, concludes the expert.
