Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s Nicknames for Each Other Are So Simple & Sweet

Just about every couple has a series of pet names they use for each other rather than slogging through their partner’s full name every time. And Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are no exception. While we could never quite envision these two ex-royals calling each other nicknames like “sweetie pie” or “baby,” their real nicknames are sweet, simple, and perfect for this low-key (well, trying to be low-key) couple.

One-half of their nicknames was previously revealed in documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journeyin which Meghan refers to Harry as “H.” But a new report in People has revealed Harry’s nickname for Meghan too, and it’s simply “M.”

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit (link in bio) Image © PA

A close friend of the couple spoke with People about how H and M are doing in their post-royal lives. According to this source, Harry and Meghan are “real homebodies who love to chill out with Archie and the dogs.” That’s exactly how Brad Pitt has been describing himself lately too — maybe they should all hang out?

“Archie is the priority,” the source added. “It’s very much still about taking care of him and putting the family first. He’s a happy kid — he loves to laugh. Archie and Harry have such a good time together. And Meghan is a great mom. She’s very much about tending to him. They are trying to live their life as regular parents.”

As for the Sussex couple’s future plans? “It’s full throttle for them right now,” the source reported. “They have a lot happening in 2020, and it will be really exciting to see.” We don’t doubt it!
