One video of Meghan Markle shared on social media by a fan has created quite the controversy! The newest royal family member seems to have adopted an English accent!
Twitter was fast to notice that the former actress supposedly sounds completely different and that is because she is faking her accent! And we were worried she might not fit in given all the changes, including moving to another country!
It all started after a Twitter user excitedly shared the clip of them and other fans meeting Meghan.

Someone commented that ‘Well she is an actress, so she is used to faking.’
‘Attention, Meghan Markle… Bear in mind ‘Madonna’ and consider how the British people react to those, like YOU, who decide to adopt a DODGY, and eminently PHONY, BRITISH ACCENT…,’ another tweeted.
One similarly said: ‘I saw a video on the @TODAYshow of Meghan Markle (the Duchess of Sussex) talking to some people in a crowd. It sounded like she was speaking in a British accent… I can’t with all that. She hasn’t lived there long enough to even have accidentally picked that up. #CringeWorthy.’
Pretty harsh right? Meanwhile, there were many who had nothing against what we heard in the clip and even explained that it’s only natural for her to pick up the accent when she has been dating a British man for two years and then moved to his country and married into his family.
‘Accents are NOT biological, they’re cultural, and they’re something you can pick up anywhere you go if you’re entrenched deeply enough,’ one person explained.
That is so true! But let’s just wait to hear her talking in more interviews and figure out if she really sounds British or not!
If she does, there’s nothing wrong with that! In fact, we should expect the accent to get stronger in time.
