An air hostess who is Meghan Markle’s double gets mistaken for the royal every day.
Christine Mathis, 32, started being compared to the then-actress when she first appeared in TV show Suits in 2011.
But the attention spiralled when Meghan began dating Prince Harry.
Now, the mum of one says she gets approached by passengers so often that she has signed up as an official Duchess of Sussex lookalike.

“It happened a few times, so I googled Meghan and it was really flattering. She’s stunning, so it’s definitely a compliment.
“I do see the resemblance. Meghan and I are both mixed race – my dad is African-American and Italian and her mum is African-American.”
Speaking of the impact of Meghan dating Harry, she continued: “I was getting stopped more and more, and when they got married it became a daily occurrence of people asking me if I was Meghan. I flew from LA to New York for work one day and security thought that I actually was her until they checked my passport, which was hilarious.
“I also had a mole removed and my dermatologist was convinced that I was Meghan and just using a fake name.

“It happens so often but I really don’t mind.
“She’s an amazing woman so it’s really flattering to be mistaken for her.”
