Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, has a new royal nickname courtesy of the Invictus Games’ Team Nigeria.

According to PEOPLE, Markle’s new nickname is “Amira Ngozi Lolo.”

The nickname was bestowed upon Markle on a plaque from Nigeria’s Chief of Defense.

And its meaning is just as regal as the Duchess herself.

“She received the name “Amira Ngozi Lolo,” which bears a royal meaning. Amira is the name of a warrior princess from a legend, while Ngozi means “blessed” and Lolo means “royal wife,” reported the outlet.

The Duke & Duchess of Sussex received their initial titles from Queen Elizabeth II as a wedding gift, and retained the titles even after they stepped back from full-time royal duties in 2020.

Meghan Markle, herself, is 43 percent Nigerian, based on an ancestry test.

And it’s speculated that this new nickname is, in part, a tribute to that ancestry as well.

As for Prince Harry, he’s been enjoying the rousing success of the Invictus Games, which the Duke — himself a war veteran — founded in 2014.

The Prince was inspired to form the Invictus Games after attending the Warrior Games in the United States in 2013.

The goal of the Invictus Games is to transform the “art of sport” for those who have served in the armed forces.

Incidentally, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made their first public appearance as a couple at the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto.
