Meghan Markle nicknamed 'Degree Wife' by royal in-law who believes her marriage to Harry will 'only last 3 years': Report

The Duchess of Sussex has allegedly been labeled 'The Degree Wife' by a senior royal who believes her marriage to Prince Harry will 'only last three years'

Meghan Markle has reportedly been given another disparaging nickname. This time, it has come from one of her in-laws.

The Duchess of Sussex has allegedly been labeled "the degree wife" by a senior royal. The unnamed relative believes Prince Harry and Meghan's marriage will "only last three years," according to The Sunday Times.

This comes after royal staff nicknamed the American actress 'Duchess Difficult'. Meanwhile, some members of her own team have branded her Me-Gain.

The rumors claiming she is difficult to work with were accentuated after three of her close team members resigned after serving just months in their respective positions.

Previous reports suggested Prince Charles also had an unusual sobriquet for his daughter-in-law. While the term he used doesn't sound complimentary in the face, the underlying meaning of it is "actually very sweet." Royal sources previously claimed the Prince of Wales referred to Meghan as "tungsten" because she's "tough and unbending" just like the tough metal.

Although the name comes from a place of admiration, it may not conjure up warm and fuzzy feelings.

Several of Meghan's friends stood up for her after rumors about her nickname emerged earlier this year.

The group, who say they still speak to her daily, upheld her kindness during an anonymous interview. Saying she hasn't changed, they described her as "selfless" and the "best listener."

"Meg has silently sat back and endured the lies and untruths," one of them said. "We worry about what this is doing to her and the baby."

Meghan tied the knot with Harry in May last year before welcoming their first child—Archie—earlier this year.

Breaking her maternity leave, the Duchess made her first public appearance last weekend during Trooping the Color, joining other members of the Royal Family to celebrate the Queen's birthday.

She was seen smiling and waving to a packed crowd from the balcony at Buckingham Palace on Queen's special day.
