Despite supposedly finding palace rules "difficult," Meghan Markle is hanging in there like a champ.

And her father-in-law, Prince Charles, must be really impressed because his nickname for the Duchess of Sussex is "Tungsten," which, in this context, means "strong" and "unbending." In case you didn't know, Tungsten is one of the strongest metals on Earth. Tungsten is so strong that it is known to to be resistant to any abrasions.


According to reports, the two have gotten close, especially amidst all the drama coming from Meghan's family. Charles even walked Meghan down the aisle.

He is incredibly fond of his new daughter-in-law. The Daily Mail wrote that "Tungsten" has become a term of endearment: "Prince Charles admires Meghan for her strength and the backbone she gives [Prince] Harry, who needs a tungsten-type figure in his life as he can be a bit of a softy."
