A lot of things change once you marry a British prince. For starters, you become a Duchess. You might also adopt a lovely accent, and you get to develop a much fancier and better looking signature.

According to Hello Giggles, the royal house is extremely strict when it comes to its members, demanding that women wear pantyhose, neutral colored nail polish, and to never ever take selfies.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are currently on their royal tour, most recently swinging through Ireland. The couple met President Michael Higgins, signing their names on the official guest book and taking tons of pictures to memorialize the event.

In the image above, you can see Markle’s old signature. You can easily make out the capital “M” and then, if you squint, you can sort of make out the rest of her name.

On the second image, Meghan’s signature is much easier to read. There’s also the beautiful calligraphy, which looks like the one used on wedding invitations or a really fancy birthday party.

Harper’s Bazaar consulted a handwriting expert who pointed out that the royal newlyweds have very similar handwriting. “It’s as if they’re singing from the same hymn sheets or reflecting each other in the same mirror,” said Tracey Trussell. “There are matching features that reveal a desire for synchronicity and stability. They are also both instinctively in tune with the soul.”

Trussel mused that Harry and Meghan’s signature style hint at two people who have a need for each other.  “Harry’s need for Meghan is seen in the long ‘y’ stem that opens to the left. Meghan’s need for Harry is seen in the dramatic left sweep of letter ‘n’, to the left, combined with the protective ‘umbrella’ style of superfluous loops above the letters.”

We know what you’re thinking. It’s just handwriting. But it’s a field of study for a reason, right? In any case, Trussell should try writing romance novels.
