In a video taken while Meghan was meeting with fans ahead of an engagement with Queen Elizabeth on June 14, Markle graciously speaks to her public—but, um, something’s a little off …
Is that a British accent we hear? Sure sounds like it.
OK, no shade. She’s being genuinely sweet with her fans, and we honestly kind of understand how the accent would rub off. I mean, she went from living in the melting pot that is Los Angeles to hearing nothing but posh British accents 24/7 (there was that brief stint in Canada in between when she was filming Suits, you remember that, eh?). But the culture shock of a brand new continent is bound to affect your manner of speech at least a little.
And extra good news: at long last, we can finally say Madonna and the Duchess of Sussex have something in common!
