It appeared to be a fun day for the Queen and her newest granddaughter-in-law, Meghan Markle, on Thursday. The two had their first royal engagement together in Cheshire.
When Queen Elizabeth II and the Duchess of Sussex stepped off the train together, Meghan addressed the Queen as "Your Majesty" followed by a curtsey.
According to editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine, Ingrid Seward, this will all change once formalities are out of the way. Once that happens, Meghan can address the Queen with a surprising nickname.
At this time, Meghan must refer to the Queen as "Your Majesty," but soon she will be able to address her as "Ma'am," which, according to Ingrid, Meghan can shorten it down to "Mama."
"This can be shortened to Mama when Meghan gets to know her as Diana did," Ingrid explains. "But never her pet name, Lillibet, which is reserved for very close family and friend."
Kensington Palace reportedly told the "Daily Mail" that Meghan has not yet referred to the Queen as her new nickname, "Mama." This will likely change once Meghan gets settled into her new role as the Duchess and wife to Harry.
However, after their recent royal engagement together, Meghan might be able to refer to the Queen her nickname sooner than we think.
