Has Meghan Markle gone posh?

Royal watchers have noticed that Prince Harry's wife now appears to be speaking with a British accent!

The American-born former Suits star, whose father Thomas' recent too candid TV interview caused the Palace to ban him from being part of royal events, a source told Radar, has a new tone to her voice, followers claim.

Just two months after her royal wedding, the Duchess of Sussex Markle, 36, is speaking with a noticeable British lilt.

Markle was greeting fans during an outing in Cheshire with Queen Elizabeth in June when the new accent was noticed.

The video shows Markle, a native of California, introducing herself to people in the crowd and discussing her wedding to Harry.

"Thank you I appreciate that," Markle said when a woman praised her May 19 ceremony.

"The sun was shining for us," the former actress noted, adding that they were "Very lucky all around," in a phrase that sounded distinctly British.

Markle's new voice got mixed reviews, as The Independent reported.

One person wrote online, "I'm kind of disappointed. It seems unauthentic for Meghan Markle to be speaking with a British accent. Especially this fast. It makes it seem like something was wrong with the way she sounded before."

Another American commented, "Unreasonably sad about Meghan Markle adopting an English accent and inflexions. We've officially lost her to the monarchy."

One hater shrugged, "Meghan Markle is a lil phony for that fake British accent coming through But if I became British royalty you'd see me day 2 saying pip pip cheerio."

In fact, pop star Madonna got blasted after she started sounding British after marrying second husband Guy Ritchie and living in London.

One Markle fan pointed out via Twitter, "Accents are NOT biological, they're cultural and they're something you can pick up anywhere you go if you're entrenched deeply enough."

More problematic for Markle, as Radar has reported, is her relationship with her American father Thomas.

A source said the royals were "shocked and blindsided" when Meghan's reclusive dad, who lives Mexico, recently opened up to interviewer Piers Morgan about his chats with Prince Harry about politics, and other controversial topics. Thomas couldn't attend the wedding after a staged photo scandal and heart surgery.

"Meghan's father has now made it impossible to ever again be invited to any royal events," the insider told Radar.

"Thomas can't be trusted to not sell stories to the media and he will get absolutely no access."

Recently, Harry's dad Prince Charles' friend Nicky Haslam blasted Markle's family.

The interior designer sniffed, "They're frightfully common. It would have been awful if that huge lump Meghan's father had been there."

While Haslam approved of Markle's mother, Doria Ragland, who he said "wasn't common," Haslam also opined, "The royals probably don't quite know how to deal with them."

Now, Meghan is sounding anything but common as she's finding her royal voice!
