Meghan Markle may not look at Twitter, but she’s more than likely behind her and Prince Harry‘s new joint Instagram page. The Duchess of Sussex, who is preparing to welcome the couple’s first child in the coming days, made the decision to delete all of her personal social media accounts in January 2018, ahead of her May wedding. The previous April, she shut down The Tig, her lifestyle blog. However, there have been a few clues that Meghan is the one managing the couple’s @SussexRoyal Instagram account, which launched earlier this month. Here are a few hints that Meghan is behind the social media curtain.

American spellings of words
While English is, of course, the official language of both the United States and the United Kingdom, certain words are spelled (or spelt, depending where you’re from!) differently. In the captions of Meghan and Harry’s Instagram posts, they tend to stick to the American versions of certain words—like using “organization” rather than “organisation” to highlight to work of WellChild and Baby2Baby or “re-energized” instead of “re-energised” in a post to thank fans for donating to their chosen charities.

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.

…and other Americanisms!
While sharing the impact of fans donating to charities in lieu of sending baby gifts, Meghan and Harry’s page noted that Los Angeles-based organization Baby2Baby “received over 5,000 products to disperse to children in need, including cribs, books, backpacks, diapers.” But in England, diapers are usually referred to as “nappies.”

In addition, the post made references to both dollars and pounds, the U.S. and English forms of currency. “Whether a $5 donation, £1000 contribution, offering to volunteer, or spreading the word – you’ve played your part,” read the caption.

Use of emojis
Other royal Instagram accounts sparingly make use of emojis, but Meghan certainly knows plenty about the cute icons as someone who had social media accounts for many years. The first emoji on the @SussexRoyal came in its second post ever, using a camera emoji to credit a photographer at Harry’s visit to a YMCA. In addition, the post thanking fans for their charity donations and highlighting Baby2Baby ended with a red heart.
