Revealed: The cruel nickname royal staff call Meghan Markle behind her back
She's really coming under fire

The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, has been labelled with a nasty nickname by staff at Kensington Palace who work for her.
According to the well-connected Tatler magazine, staff who are so fed up with her diva behaviour, have given her the secret nickname of ‘Me-gain’.
This is in reference to her desire to always want more.
Meghan, 37, is understood to have rubbed some courtiers up the wrong way, with insiders previously revealing she had been dubbed 'Duchess Difficult'.
Although the staff are not treating Meghan as badly as they did Sarah Ferguson after she married Prince Andrew, she is still under fire from the courtiers. 'Meghan has seen nothing like that – even though staff at Kensington Palace are now calling her "Me-Gain", says Tatler.'
Kensington Palace has disputed similar reports surrounding the Duchess' relationship with her staff on a number of previous occasions.
The Duchess of Sussex, who is due to give birth to her first child in the coming weeks, has been dogged by reports of demanding her aides work long hours and she is renowned to be very difficult to please.
She has been linked to a number of staff resignations, including personal assistant Melissa Toubati, who is said to have handed in her notice last year because the work had become 'too much'.
Earlier this month it was also announced that Amy Pickerill, who was appointed as Meghan’s assistant private secretary just last year, is to leave her post after the couple move to Frogmore Cottage, away from Kensington Palace.
Royal author Anna Pasternak believes the Duchess needs to stop thinking of herself as a Hollywood star. 'I think what Meghan's got to realise is she cannot live life in the royal family like an A-list Hollywood star,' she said.
'Within the monarchy it requires a very different set of behaviour.'
'You cannot have it all. You cannot have your freedom and this privilege... It's not a fairytale. Recognise that and live with the consequences.'
