It seems that Prince Harry already fits perfectly into his new American life.

According to one expert, the Duke of Sussex has already slipped into the American way of life by imitating his wife Meghan Markle with her “Americanisms” causing laughter.

The expert sociolinguist of the language learning app Babbel analyzed the first audio podcast of Archewell, Prince Harry, and Meghan.

Speaking to Cosmopolitan, he said: “The expression ‘you guys’ appears, an American phrase that Harry used to address listeners both in advance of the podcast and during the podcast.”

“In the premiere episode, he even uses the typically American term ‘amazing’, something that makes his American wife giggle when she uses it,” he continued.

“Harry says things like ‘love always wins’ and ‘the power within us’ – two very positive and uplifting phrases that many of us would associate with an optimistic attitude,” he added.

Furthermore, he stated that the phrases could possibly have been used by Harry to “be better understood by the American press.”

“It could be that Prince Harry has started to borrow American phrases and words to fit in and be better understood by the American press, and this could become so common that he uses these words when speaking to British and American alike,” he said.

“Or he may just be imitating his wife – interacting on a close level with someone all the time can make us learn their speaking habits,” he added.

He claimed that Harry is “developing a more relaxed American way of speaking” but is not losing his English accent.

“Think of the likes of Simon Cowell, Adele, and Gordon Ramsay – they have spent a great deal of time living and working in the United States, but have retained their accent and a largely British way of speaking and interacting with the world. Harry will likely go that way, ”he said.
