Meghan Markle just let slip Archie's nickname - and it's very cute!

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are currently on their royal tour of Africa, and we've already seen more than our fair share of adorable photos from their trip, including our first proper glimpse of their son, Archie.

The couple posted videos and pictures of Archie's visit to see Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter, Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe.

But now we've also been given more of a look into their family life and discovered what the couple call Archie, who was born on May 6, 2019.

In a video posted on Twitter of the family walking to the meeting, she can be heard saying “bubba.”

She also uses the term later on when the royals and their hosts are sitting having tea.



Encouraging him to give the Archbishop a wave, Meghan said: “Say hello! Hello, hi!" only for Archie to snuggle back closer to his mum, causing her to giggle and say: "Oh, Bubba!”

At another point, Archie burst into giggles after seeing Thandeka laughing as Prince Harry joked: "I think he knows exactly what’s going on," and Thandeka replied: “You like me best, yes! Oh, you like the ladies better, yeah.”

Meghan added: "He likes to flirt.”

Meghan's father-in-law Prince Charles is said to have his own nickname for his  daughter-in-law. He calls her Tungsten, inspired by the tough metal known for its robustness and strength.

According to various reports, the nickname came from Meghan's strength and determination - which is said to have impressed Prince Charles.
