Prince Philip’s Nickname for the Duchess of Sussex

According to a royal expert, Prince Philip had a less-than-kind nickname for the Duchess of Sussex that drew connections to Wallis Simpson. Wallis Simpson, an American divorcée, married King Edward VIII, who abdicated the throne to be with her.

This caused a major scandal in the royal family. The nickname given to Meghan Markle by Prince Philip suggested similarities between her and Wallis Simpson, both being American and divorced when they entered the royal family.

Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII:

Wallis Simpson’s marriage to King Edward VIII was met with controversy. In December 1936, shortly after ascending the throne, King Edward VIII abdicated to marry Wallis. Back then, it was forbidden for royalty to marry divorced individuals. This rule remained in place until 2002, just three years before Prince Charles married Camilla. Following their marriage, King Edward and Wallis were faced with restrictions and were not allowed to return home without King George VI’s permission, as it could have caused public unrest.

During their years of exile, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor garnered significant attention. In 1937, during a visit to Nazi Germany, they made headlines by giving the Nazi salute when meeting Adolf Hitler. This incident shocked the world and further added to their controversial image.

It appears that Prince Philip made a connection between Wallis Simpson’s controversial marriage and Meghan Markle’s entry into the royal family, resulting in the nickname he gave her. The late Prince Philip’s opinions and feelings towards Meghan Markle remain a topic of interest and speculation.
