Why does Meghan call Prince Harry H?

Meghan Markle repeatedly refers to Harry as H in Harry & Meghan. This nickname isn't actually new. She first revealed her this pet name for him in their 2019 documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey.

While talking speaking on the overwhelming media scrutiny she has faced since joining the royal family, Meghan said: "I've said for a long time to H—that’s what I call him—It’s not enough to just survive something, right? That’s not the point of life. You’ve got to thrive, you’ve got to feel happy."

Sadly, she didn't go into detail about why she calls him H, but it seems to be her longstanding nickname for him. Furthermore, Prince Harry also refers to Meghan by her first initial, M, in Harry & Meghan. Again, no explanation is provided, but it's pretty cute if we do say so ourselves.

One possible reason they may have come up with these nicknames is because their real names are constantly being exploited and disgraced in the news. Maybe they just wanted to come up with nicknames for each other to escape their identities.

Believe it or not, Harry and Meghan aren't even their real names. Prince Harry's full name is Prince Henry Charles Albert David, but his family decided to call him Harry.

Meanwhile, Meghan's full name is Rachel Meghan Markle. However, she always felt her middle name Meghan suited her best.
