Meghan Markle loses ANOTHER royal aide - amid rumours about her 'difficult' behaviour

While discussing women's issues with other leading ladies (it's #InternationalWomensDay, after all), the Duchess of Sussex revealed very important info regarding baby Sussex-she shared the nickname that she and Prince Harry have for their baby.

Aussie born Samantha, who worked for the royal family for 17 years, used to work closely with the Queen and is said to have been one of her "most trusted" aides.

'No, sorry no. For me that's my personal preference, ' the expecting Duchess replied.

She told the audience: "I loved that - boy or girl, whatever it is, we hope that's the case".

The Duchess of Sussex took part in a panel discussion on International Women's Day, hosted by the Queen's Commonwealth Trust, of which she was named Vice President on Friday morning. The support and encouragement which Her Royal Highness will bring to the young leaders with whom we work promises to have a profound effect.

The Duchess of Sussex reportedly loses her third key aide before a move to Windsor later this month.

Meghan, Britain's Duchess of Sussex, has admitted she doesn't engage with Twitter or read newspapers, in an effort to avoid "getting muddled" by the "noise", the UK's Press Association (PA) news agency reports.

Meghan also talked about how action needs to be more than hashtag activism, saying that "Hashtags are not enough".

Although online abuse isn't new to the royal couple-Prince Harry released a statement in 2016 condemning "the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls" towards his then-girlfriend-there is a separate, insidious nature to recent attacks.

Meghan hasn't always steered clear of social media.

The Duchess - also known as the Countess of Dunbarton in Scotland, and Baroness Carrickfergus in Northern Ireland - was enthusiastically embraced by the left-liberal commentariat, many of whom regarded the entry of a mixed race woman to the Royal Family as a totemic symbol of social progress.

She shared a letter sent by 19th-century mathematician and computer pioneer Charles Babbage to Queen Victoria's husband, Prince Albert. The answer, it turns out, might be found in her calendar of royal engagements.
