We always love hearing about royal nicknames. For some reason, this small glimpse into their private lives – a detail as simple as a very sweet-yet-obvious nickname – is enough to remind us that the royal family aren’t as different from us as we think.
While answering a question in an interview with Tom Bradby during ITV’s documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, the Duchess of Sussex let slip that her sweet nickname for Prince Harry is “H”. “I’ve said for a long time to H,” she said, before whispering, “That’s what I call him”. Bradby appears to encourage her to continue with answering his question, quietly reassuring Meghan that, “It’s alright.” She awkwardly laughs and carries on with the tough interview where she’s discussing her difficulty with adopting the “British sensibility of a stiff upper lip”.
Back in September, Meghan wore an “H” and “A” necklace for her boys while cheering on her long-time friend, Serena Williams, at the US Open. It was a sweet way to honor Harry and Archie while away, who we’re sure are never far from her mind.
