After the news of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepping down as senior members of the British Royal Family, a new and exciting word based on the latter has been coined and is used as a verb.


Meghan Markle is no longer just a name, but now an action word. This is because Prince Harry's wife is regarded in some quarters as the matron saint of sound mental health.

This led to the creation of a new term "to Meghan Markle." It is a verb which means to value one's self and mental health enough to leave a situation or environment where one is not welcomed.

The word's meaning is related to Meghan and Harry's decision to step back as senior members of the Royal Family following their constant struggles with the Press.

According to "The Guardian," the word can be used in situations when one wants to take a stand and have fun, in relationships, and at work.


For example, when someone has "Meghan Markled" a boyfriend or girlfriend who texted them, that person can say:

"I totally Meghan Markled my ex last night and never returned his texts."


The term "Meghan Markled" was created by a Twitter user, Ryan Jesse, who tweeted about the word and its meaning on January 20. The tweet caught the eye of some people, who began using it.

"Urban Dictionary" also caught the buzz and it generated and defined its own term for the word. According to the dictionary, Meghan Markle is the verb for the word, ghosting.

"Megxit" was used by many online sites, television stations, and news dailies when talking about Prince Harry's and Meghan's announcement


The dictionary further describes it as the action word for ghosting or disposing of people once you have no use or benefit from them anymore without any regard for genuine relationships. An example of the word's usage in that instance is:

"She did a Meghan Markle on her friends as soon as she became famous."

"To Meghan Markle" is not the first buzzword that is linked to Prince Harry's wife, though, as the word, "Megxit" also trended after the announcement of the Sussex Royals' decision to quit Buckingham Palace.


"Dictionary.com defines Megxit as a slang term of couple Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to step back from their senior roles in the British Royal Family.

"Megxit" was used by many online sites, television stations, and news dailies when talking about Prince Harry's and Meghan Markle's announcement.

While many of Meghan Markle's fans would love Ryan Jesse's definition of the new term, it wouldn't be surprising to find them hating on Urban Dictionary's definition.
