We might all still be calling her Meghan Markle, but it seems the Duchess of Sussex is well and truly a British royal.
The revelation comes courtesy of video shared to Twitter by a woman who met the 36-year-old in the English city of Chester last month.
The newly married Duchess was on her first official engagement with the Queen – opening a road bridge in Widnes – when she approached gathered crowds to chat and shake hands. Among the throng was fan Aya El Zeiny who recorded her encounter with the Los Angeles-born Royal.
The pair only spoke briefly, but even those few sentences have some claiming the Duchess now sounds a fair whack posher than she used to.
Take a listen:

Look, we’re not entirely convinced she sounds all that British. But it seems quite a few Americans are.
I just watched a video that showed Meghan Markle starting to have a british accent and I’m so here for it you have no idea. ????????????
