Meghan Markle lookalike! Can you believe they’re not the same person?
Christine Primrose Mathis has made a name for herself on social media for her incredibly unique trait – being a spitting image of American royal Meghan Markle.
The 32-year-old, who works as an air hostess, claims she first started being compared to the Duchess of Sussex when Meghan was working as an actress in the hit show Suits.
However, Ms Mathis says she didn’t take much notice of the comparison until Meghan’s face was plastered on every blog, social media site and newspaper.View this post on Instagram
The look-alike’s dark hair and tan complexion mixed with the wash of freckles the Duchess of Sussex has become known for, dazed many people as Ms Mathis roamed the streets of her hometown.
So much so, she decided to join a look alike agency in 2019.
“Five years ago I was working in first-class as a flight attendant and passengers would say 'hey, you look like that girl from Suits' every so often,” Ms Mathis explained.
“I could see the resemblance, but I just brushed it off but when Meghan and Harry got engaged, that's when I started hearing it a lot more often.
“At first, I was confused but I definitely took it as a compliment because I thought she was so beautiful.”
The lookalike went on to add: “Last year, I signed up with a lookalike agency because after they got married, it became a lot more frequent.
“Hopefully, I can get some corporate work and TV work. I've been acting since I was very young and I'm working on getting an audition with my agent. That would be the absolute dream.
“Social media can be cruel, I've had people comment that I'm trying to be her or that my hair and make-up is the same. I feel like I've always done my hair like that. I try to ignore the people who are being mean.”
The royal twin admitted she even went on to post a video of her to the social media app TikTok where she dressed like Meghan Markle and claimed “people couldn’t believe the resemblance.”
“I have had a lot more opportunities from looking like her; she's so famous.View this post on Instagram
“I think most of my following comes from people thinking I am Meghan Markle but at the same time I hope they also like my personality.
“A lot of people look up to her and because they can't get in direct contact with her, I guess I'm the next best thing.”
