Prince Philip’s Nasty Nickname for Meghan Markle Revealed: Book

Prince Philip had a seemingly spiteful nickname for Meghan Markle, according to a bombshell excerpt from a forthcoming book by royal biographer, Ingrid Seward.

Philip, who died in 2021 at age 99 , allegedly called Markle the “Duchess of Windsor” — a stinging reference to the title held by the much-maligned American socialite Wallis Simpson.

Simpson, a US divorcée, married Edward VIII in 1937 after he abdicated the British throne in a cloud of controversy.

Philip thought it “uncanny” how much Markle reminded him of Simpson, Seward claims in her new tome, “My Mother And I.”

“He wasn’t simply referring to the fact that both were pencil-slim, dark-haired and glamorous American divorcées,” she writes.

Like Simpson, Markle was also a divorced woman before she met Prince Harry in 2016.

The former actress was married to film producer Trevor Engelson from 2011 until their split in 2014.

According to Seward’s book, Queen Elizabeth was initially far nicer about Markle.

She allegedly “approved” of the actress after being introduced to her by Harry in 2017.

However, she did believe that the wedding dress worn by the “Suits” star at her 2018 wedding was “too white” because she had already been married once before.

Meghan and Harry decided to take a step back as senior members of the royal family in January 2020 and they subsequently moved across the pond to Montecito, Calif.

Their choice to leave England was reminiscent of Edward VIII’s decision to abdicate the British throne and flee to France with Simpson after they fell in loce.

Royal expert Hugo Vickers noted in 2022 that Harry is also more like Edward VIII than he might realize.

Harry and Edward each “radiated the same sadness after cutting their links with the royal family,” Vickers said at the Henley Literary Festival at the time.

He said that one could tell how Harry and Edward were feeling by “looking into their eyes.”

He also added how Edward — like Harry—- “took the path of perceived happiness” when he married. However, he didn’t find true happiness as “in the end, it’s duty that makes you happy.”

“As for the Duke of Sussex, who knows what’s going to happen to him? I think he looks thoroughly miserable,” Vickers declared.

    “Duchess Windsor” is not such a nasty nickname. He was speaking the truth. Except, Skank is making Simpson look like a saint, compared to her nasty, vile, malignant narcissist, personality disorder, always the victim self.

    • Roger Codger says:

      The “Dutchess of East LA has never acquired the life skills of mingling with the higher classes of Royalty. She feels uncomfortable with the real elite and it shows.

  • Zeus Papadopoulos says:

    Ahhhhhh, author needs to update their titles. Phillip has been King since May. No longer Prince.

    • FLA-GAL says:

      Um, Phillip has been DEAD since 2021… also, since his WIFE was the Queen, he was never titled KING (he’s not of the Windsor Royal line) and thus kept his OWN title of PRINCE through HIS royal line of Germany. It is CHARLES who has been King since his mother’s (Queen Elizabeth) death in September 2022.

  • Harry made his bed, If he’s having trouble sleeping in it? Oh BOO HOO!

  • FLA-GAL says:

    “Duchess of Windsor” is NOT a nasty nickname. Prince Phillip had CLASS… I could come up with some really raunchy nicknames for the pathetic broad… what, was she expecting everyone to genuflect to HER ’cause she’s part niggah?

  • Verna says:

    What job did Prince Philip do besides walk behind the Queen? He was a kept man!
