Meghan Markle being taught royal history by Prince Charles to help improve relations with family

The Duchess of Sussex is said to have a close relationship with the Prince of Wales – with the 70-year-old now acting as her "mentor" as he teaches her about the royals and constitutional history.

A source told the Mail Online: "The Duchess has shown a genuine interest in learning more about the history of the family she has married into, and her father-in-law has been delighted to impart his knowledge."

Sources claimed the pair, who became close after Prince Charles walked the former actress down the aisle for her wedding to Prince Harry, share an interest in history, art and culture.

And Meghan's advice to husband Prince Harry – to "look after the loving parent you have left" – has also reportedly helped relations in the Royal family.

Prince Charles and wife Camilla have reportedly been all the more welcoming to Meghan, 37, as they understand what it is like to experience the spotlight on "traumas and crises".

Another source also told The Mail on Sunday: "Because there’s been bad behaviour that’s caused problems in his family, Charles understands how difficult it must be for Meghan. And it has endeared her to him even more."

It comes after it was claimed Prince Charles gave Meghan the nickname Tungsten, inspired by the tough metal known for its robustness and strength.

A source said: "It’s become a term of endearment."

It comes as the pregnant Duchess today joined her in-laws for a royal party, honouring Charles's contribution to the national life of Wales over the decades.

Despite rumours of a rift between the duchesses, Meghan and Kate were both in attendance with Princes Harry and William at the lavish Buckingham Palace event.

Prince Charles was previously seen chatting to Meghan and Harry as the newlyweds made their debut on Buckingham Palace's balcony during Trooping The Colour.

His special attention would have been kindly felt by Meghan, who admitted to Harry she was "nervous" as the royal family stood before a crowd of thousands.

Kensington Palace has been approached for comment.
