Remember a couple months ago when everyone flipped out over a clip of Meghan Markle sounding like she had a *slight* British accent? Well, the internet is back at it thanks to her appearance in ITV's new documentary Queen of the World, where she has been accused of sporting a vaguely British lilt.

But these people must really mean vague, because... are we listening to the same thing? She sounds pretty American from where we're standing.
Naturally, Twitter is all a flutter about the fact that her voice is kinda-maybe changing:

There are even suggestions that Meghan's had voice coaching to fit in more with the royal family:
#QueenOfTheWorld Meghan has had voice coaching, she seems much softer, bit like how Kates changed too- karen bateup (@pinkdiamond71) September 25, 2018
Though some people simply aren't here for all this ACCENT DRAMA:
Our press wind me up sometimes. Reading criticism of Meghan’s slight accent change.- Ben Richards (@benrichardsact) September 26, 2018
She lives in the UK ffs, surrounded by Brits, it’s going to happen, and listening to a clip, it’s only subtle, give her a break 🙄
Not to burst everyone's bubble, but it's pretty normal to pick up a slight accent when you move countries and surround yourself by people who speak like posh royals. And also there's the fact that her voice sounds really quite American still. Give the Duchess a break!
