Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, have hit the ground running as newlywed royals— and now, fans think Meghan Markle has even started to lose her American accent.
In a video posted by a fan to Twitter, you can hear Meghan having kind, thoughtful conversations with fans as she introduces herself— and while it might just be her sounding extra proper, it does sound like she has a bit of a English flair.

While some criticized her new accent, others came to her defense saying it doesn’t take long once you’ve lived in a new country to start sounding and acting like the community you’re surrounded by. Others just love it because I mean, who doesn’t love a good British accent?
Meghan Markle is a lil phony for that fake British accent coming through
But if I became British royalty you’d see me day 2 saying pip pip cheerio

Accents are NOT biological, they're cultural, and they're something you can pick up anywhere you go if you're entrenched deeply enough.
