Whoever Runs Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Instagram Account Loves Puns
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's official Instagram account, @SussexRoyal, has been having a field day during the couple's royal tour of Africa, taking place from now 'til October 2.
For starters, the account has posted 11 times in three days (lawd, our prayers go out to their social-media person). Doubly intriguing, though, is that the person crafting the photo captions (our bet is officially on Meghan herself) is a big fan of puns, which sorta kinda breaks royal tradition (you can bet the @KensingtonPalace and @ClarenceHouse accounts have never tried to caption anything as "a bad heir day"...get it?!).

Arch meets Archie! This morning The Duke and Duchess were honoured to introduce their son Archie, to Archbishop, Desmond Tutu and his daughter, Thandeka. The Archbishop, a globally respected figure in anti-apartheid movement, is one of the world?s great champions of equality, and has spent his life tirelessly battling injustice. Their Royal Highnesses have joined The Archbishop and Thandeka to learn more about the work of The Tutu and Leah Legacy Foundation, and see first-hand how they are focussing on global awareness of the critical issues affecting the world. #RoyalVisitSouthAfrica ?

For a photo from Archie's first royal engagement, Meghan and Harry's account posted the photo above along with a spectacular pun: "Arch Meets Archie!" referring to Archbishop Desmond Tutu. (Oh, yeah, and the exclamation points are really heavy-handed lately, too. Megs, is that you?!)
And the account thought it was so nice, they used it twice. Yep, their official IG account used the same exact caption ("Arch meets Archie!") again for their Instagram Stories, where they posted a video of Meghan and Harry holding baby Archie and walking toward the Archbishop. We guess you guys really liked that play on names, didn't ya?

Ladies who launch! This afternoon in the Woodstock district of Cape Town, The Duchess of Sussex joined inspiring female entrepreneurs who shared their passion for ideas, technology and making a positive social impact. Each of the women shared amazing stories of how they started in business, the journey they?ve been on - successes and struggles - but also their ambitions for the future. Female empowerment and championing women?s rights is a key focus for The Duchess. By taking small actions we can make a big difference. Thank you to the inspiring women The Duchess met today, who are setting this example every day through their dedication and determination. #RoyalVisitSouthAfrica Photo ©? PA images / Sussex Royal
Later in the day, the account captioned a photo, "Ladies who launch!" (Another exclamation point, you guys.)
The caption refers to the official name of the Woodstock Exchange initiative for female entrepreneurs in South Africa that goes by the same name.
But it's the nearly back-to-back posts in the same day…with the same three-word, sorta-punny, exclamation-point-including captions that have us scratching our head over Meghan's magnificent multitasking abilities. (We mean, it has to be her…)
Sorry to spill the royal tea, Your Majes-teas. See? We can be punny, too. (@SussexRoyal, call us!!!)
