When Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex announced they were leaving their roles as senior working royals in the Britsh royal family, fans across the globe were stunned. It was no secret that Meghan was having a challenging time within The Firm. However, most people assumed that she would give it more time, and eventually adjust.
Instead, amid the constant tabloid rumors and the lack of support from the royal family, the Sussexes decided to call it quits. They turned their royal duties back over to the royal family and moved across the globe to Meghan’s hometown of LA.
Though the royal family is said to have been stunned by Megxit, especially since they weren’t really consulted beforehand, Prince Charles was reportedly not at all shocked. In fact, the future Crowned King expected that his daughter-in-law would have some major issues adjusting to royal life.

Prince Charles adores Meghan Markle
From the moment Prince Harry introduced his father to Meghan in 2016, Prince Charles has been smitten with the former actor. The pair share a loving, father/daughter relationship and the prince even walked Meghan down the aisle at her wedding.
The prince has his own special nickname for Meghan, “Tungsten.” “Prince Charles admires Meghan for her strength and the backbone she gives Harry, who needs a tungsten-type figure in his life as he can be a bit of a softy,” a royal source told Daily Mail. “It’s become a term of endearment.”
In fact, just before her wedding, the Prince of Wales gifted Meghan with a beautiful diamond tennis bracelet that she wore often to royal engagements, on tours, and at events.
