Contrary to his assertion, the term ‘Megxit’ was not intended to express misogyny. Because it contains the first syllable of the woman’s name–“and as the Duke cleverly recognized, the term for the woman he is married to”–but the emphasis is on the play of words. Because “Megxit” is a bit like “Brexit”. “A political event that the Duke may be familiar with.”
