Meghan Markle Just Might Earn *This* Royal Right if She Keeps Charming the Queen

Queen Elizabeth has several nicknames (read: Gary, Gan-Gan, Sausage), and if Meghan Markle continues to play her cards right, she might just get to use the one special moniker reserved for a select few. 

Turns out the queen’s most exclusive pet name is—drumroll, please—“Mama,” and according to Majesty magazine editor Ingrid Seward, Meg has a couple of boxes to tick before she reaches “Mama” status.

Seward told Grazia that the duchess will ultimately be allowed to call the queen “Mama,” when she “gets to know her as [Princess] Diana did.” For the time being, however, she’s expected to curtsy before Eliz and refer to her as “Your Majesty.” Once she is further ingratiated into the royal family and passes her duchess lessons, she’ll be encouraged to call her “Ma’am” in conversation “as many times as possible.” But it will only be when she really settles into her royal role that she’ll receive the “Mama” green light. 

If our bestie-meter is right, then it won’t be long until Meghan gets free reign of the sweet nickname.
