Meghan Markle gave up her personal social media before becoming a royal, but she may be running an Instagram account behind the scenes!
Since Meghan and her husband, Prince Harry, started their own Instagram account earlier this month, fans have been speculating that the pregnant Duchess of Sussex is personally posting to @SussexRoyal.
The main reason for the suspicion is due to one defining characteristic about Meghan that sets her apart from the rest of the royal family — she’s American. Many fans have pointed out that, throughout some of the page’s recent posts, the American spelling of words are used. While Americans spell words like organization and energized with the letter z, British folk spell those same words with an s.
In a post that highlighted Baby2Baby, a charity that provides children with necessities, the caption spoke about Meghan’s Los Angeles roots and referred to the non-profit as a “very special organization.”
Last but not least, we would like you to meet @Baby2Baby! As we shared, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are immensely grateful for your kindness in anticipation of their baby. As a result of the inspiring support they have received from all of you, Baby2Baby is one of four selected charities they would like to introduce you to. As a native of Los Angeles, The Duchess of Sussex wanted to include a locally based charity from her hometown that helps children and parents in need. Baby2Baby provides children ages 0-12 living in poverty with the necessities every child deserves. In the last seven years, B2B has distributed over 50 million items to children in homeless shelters, domestic violence programs, foster care, hospitals, underserved schools, and to children who have lost everything in the wake of disasters. Please consider supporting this very special organization. Thank you for sharing the love ❤️ Photos courtesy of: @Baby2Baby

Another post highlighting the money charities received in honor of Baby Sussex said Little Village HQ’s team was “re-energized” as a result of the donations.
In the same post, another reason for the Meghan theory came to light — the use of an American name of a product. The page once again wrote of Baby2Baby, writing that it was able to disperse “diapers” to over 5,000 children in need, but in the U.K. diapers are referred to as “nappies.”
Additionally, the same post referenced both American and British currency, writing, “Whether a $5 donation, £1000 contribution, offering to volunteer, or spreading the word — you’ve played your part.”
Just one week ago, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex asked that you kindly consider supporting various organisations around the world in lieu of sending gifts for the upcoming arrival of their first born. Not only did many of you lend your support, you took action. Their Royal Highnesses wanted you to know the impact of your support – the direct effect your donation, energy, and action made! YOU chose to be part of the collective good, and you have made a real difference. Whether a $5 donation, £1000 contribution, offering to volunteer, or spreading the word – you’ve played your part. And on behalf of The Duke and Duchess (and Baby Sussex), we thank you so much. YOUR IMPACT: @thelunchboxfund will now be able to provide a minimum of 100,000 additional hot nutritionally fortified meals to children in dire need across South Africa @littlevillagehq received donations from all over the world (from UAE to Hong Kong and the US), they’ve increased their monthly donors, had a surge in volunteer applications, and re-energized their hard working team of 200+ staff and volunteers @wellchild can now provide 300+ additional hours of specialist care by a Well Child Nurse for a child with serious health needs, allowing families to stay together at home vs in hospital @Baby2Baby have received over 5,000 products to disperse to children in need, including cribs, books, backpacks, diapers and have received monetary donations from around the globe – from Guadalajara to Italy. You made this happen. Thank you.

One last reason for the suspicion came in the account’s very first post, which used an emoji, something the other royal accounts rarely choose to do.
Despite the above instances, the @SussexRoyal account does frequently use British spellings and terms, but that hasn’t stopped fans from speculating!
This also isn’t the first time Meghan and Harry’s Instagram account has gained attention. Less than six hours after the royal couple unveiled their new account, it had already amassed 1 million followers, a milestone that Guinness World Records said was reached in record time. About two weeks after its creation, the account now has more than 4.7 million followers.
The Sussexes’ recent appearance on social media comes just ahead of the arrival of their first child. ET recently confirmed that the pair moved into their home at Frogmore Cottage and are eager to welcome their little one.
“Harry’s attention is completely absorbed with the birth of his first child,” a source recently told ET. “He can’t wait to become a father. He’s been doing everything he can to put Meghan at ease.”
As for Meghan, the source said that “she’ll be a fantastic mother.”
“She is so wonderful with children and they are both so excited,” the source added.
