Who is behind the Sussex royal Instagram account?
Cape Town – She may have had to shut down all her personal Instagram accounts, but fans believe Meghan has found her way back onto social media.
Shortly after Harry and Meghan's nuptials in May 2018, it was then announced that the Duke of Sussex and his older brother, William, Duke of Cambridge would be splitting their households – which includes separate communications staff.
Weeks after the official separation, and the appointment of Sara Latham as their new press secretary, the royal couple launched their own Instagram account using the handle @sussexroyal.
"We look forward to sharing the work that drives us, the causes we support, important announcements, and the opportunity to shine a light on key issues. We thank you for your support, and welcome you," the caption of their first post said.
According to BBC News, the account broke the record for gaining more than a million followers in just five hours and 45 minutes.
Since then several posts have been shared with lengthy captions that now have people questioning just who the person is making the posts.
3 HINTS THAT IT COULD BE MEGHAN:
1. Speaking to each individual follower
According to E! News, the tone of the most recent post especially evokes the idea that the person posting is speaking straight to followers with the constant use of "you" – a change from the usual formal tone and language used in royal posts.
2. American spelling vs British spelling
While for the most part the captions have used UK spelling, which typically replaces a 'z' with an 's', some of the posts have used American spelling.
In one post, the word 'organisation' has been spelt with a 'z' however, the Kensington Palace Twitter account has spelt it with an 's' in several tweets. In another post, the word 're-energised' is also spelt with a 'z' where Kensington Palace spelt the same word with an 's' in a tweet.
The posts also include words that are more prominently used in American English, for example the use of the word 'diapers' instead of 'nappies' in the most recent post, Hello! magazine reports.
It's not surprising that Meghan may be the mastermind behind the new favourite Insta page to follow, as she headed her own lifestyle site and Instagram page for years.
Meanwhile, it could also be the couple's press secretary, Sara Latham as she has had experience working in both an American environment as well as a British environment.
