Is the duchess back on social media? Fans seem to think that they have reasons to believe that Meghan Markle is behind the new official Instagram account of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The former actress had to give up her social media accounts when she married Prince Harry in May 2018, but now the pair have launched their own Instagram account separate from Kensington Palace.

There are some telling signs that have some fans thinking that Meghan, who was an avid Instagram user in the past, is the one behind the posts that are being shared on the new account. The account was created in early April and already has more than 4.7 million followers, and it might just be a way for Meghan to reconnect with her fans. 

The spelling in the captions is catching people's attention.

They introduced a Los Angeles-based foundation called Baby2Baby, and they urged people to donate money or supplies instead of giving the couple gifts for the baby they are expecting. Not only is LA Meghan's hometown, but some noticed that the spelling in some of the words in the caption are written the American way and not in British English. The sentence "Please consider supporting this very special organization" stood out in particular because in England words like "organization" are spelled with an "s," not a "z."


The posts seem eager to reach not only British royal fans but American fans as well.

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.

When asking for donations in this post that highlights different charities people could donate to, the use of both American and British currency was used. Also the spelling of "re-energized" is not the traditional way that a British person would write it.

The couple created the account ahead of the arrival of their first child together.

The royal couple seem to be eager to build a closer connection to the people that they serve through this account. They are doing things their way, and they've chosen to do things a bit differently than Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton. The Sussexes have even chosen not to pose for photos right after their child is born like other royals been done in the past. Perhaps they'll be debuting their child on their new Instagram account, which broke the Guinness World Record by reaching 1 million followers in just one hour. 


Fans seem to be enjoying the account and have been excited to hear from the pair.

One fan said she was skeptical that the couple separated from the other royal account to create their own, but now she sees why it was necessary.

"At first I was skeptical about the split due to the comparisons I thought that it would generate. But now, I realize that this account was everything I needed😂! This page is very engaging with the posts and captions feeling very personal and passionate. No wonder they wanted to split! Thanks for everything @sussexroyal," Mary Fisher commented on a post.
