Prince Charles is not as outspoken as his sons Prince William and Prince Harry. In fact, one could say the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II learned to stay away from the public eye and just be present the time he needs to be, no matter that he is the first one in line for the succession of the throne.

And even if we compare his sons, we already know that Prince Harry has been in a whirlwind of scandals due to his several interviews where he has revealed all the atrocities the Royal family has done to him and his family. For example, we have that insidious comment someone directed at Baby Archie for his skin color or that Meghan Markle had suicidal thoughts and nobody helped her. However, Harry told Oprah: "I will always love him. There’s a lot of hurt that’s happened. I will continue to make it one of my priorities to heal that relationship."


Despite they have a stranged relationship now that Harry and Meghan are in California and the Royal family is and always will be in the U.K, this was not always the case. When Prince Harry married Meghan Markle, her father-in-law, Prince Charles walked her down the aisle because her dad wasn't in attendance. What more proof do you need that they did get along well?

After the wedding, it was revealed that Prince Charles had a strange, fitting, odd but strange nickname for Meghan Markle: Tungsten. He’s been calling her tungsten, the metal because she is tough and unbending. It’s a bit of a weird one but I think he really respects her. He thinks she has managed to deal with it well. He has had his fair share of bad press in the past, a lot of crisis in his life, so I think he’s trying to get her to navigate the choppy waters of joining the Royal Family." said the royal expert Rusell Myers.

If you are wondering what 'Tungsten' means, it is one of the most resilient metals on the planet (It is also a little bit toxic to humans and animal, so we just do not know if Charles was sending a secret message or not) According to royal expert Christine-Marie Liwag Dixon, Charles uses the code name in a charming way. “She has also said that she felt less than at home in the Royal Family. The Royal Family may not have approved of Meghan and Harry stepping down as senior royals despite them doing so to escape an environment that was clearly not good for their mental health," Dixon added "However it seems that Prince Charles had a lot of respect for Meghan's resilient nature," she continued,
