Royal-watchers on social media suspect that Meghan Markle has secretly taken the reins at "@SussexRoyal," the new Instagram account she shares with Prince Harry. On Monday, for example, the account wrote in a message about donations made in honor of the couple's baby-to-be, "YOU chose to be part of the collective good, and you have made a real difference." E! notes that speaking straight to followers with the word "you" is "a change from the typically more formal language used on royal accounts." In fact, a follower responded to that message as if it were Markle. "This is due to you and your husband bringing awareness to you program via social media," the Instagram user wrote. Meanwhile, the account has frequently used the American spellings of words such as "organization" and "re-energized"--both of which Brits would spell with an "s" instead of a "z."
