Woman Says She Is Constantly Mistaken For Meghan Markle
An American woman says she is constantly being stopped by strangers who mistake her for Meghan Markle.
Christine Mathis works in cabin crew for JetBlue airline and is always getting asked if she's the former actor and current Duchess of Sussex.
The mum-of-one claims people come up to her 10 times a day, convinced that she's the celebrity.
And now the 32-year-old has decided to cash in on her looks, signing for an agency to find work as a lookalike.
Christine said: "I started getting mistaken for Meghan years ago when I worked in first class - passengers would stop me and say I looked like 'that girl from Suits'.
"I do see the resemblance! Meghan and I are both mixed race - my dad is African American and Italian and her mom is African American, maybe they're related somehow!
"When she started dating Harry, 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 was her until they checked my passport which was hilarious."
Adding: "I also had a mole removed and my dermatologist was convinced that I was Meghan and just using a fake name to get the work done secretly!"

Now, almost a decade after she first started to get noticed, Christine has become a professional lookalike - and has already posed with 'Harry'.
"I've wanted to be an actress ever since I was a little girl," she said. "And people are so convinced that I am actually Meghan that I thought why not see if I can get some jobs pretending to be her.
"I want to do corporate and TV work, but my absolute dream would be to play Meghan in a Lifetime movie about her.
"I only just signed up to an agency, and have already done a shoot with a Prince Harry lookalike which was a lot of fun but also weird pretending to be with another guy!
"We did the shoot at the Terranea resort and we were stopped at least 20 times. People were even taking pictures with us, it was a really fun experience.
"A lot of men do stop me to tell me I look like Meghan and use it as a kind of chat up line, which is bizarre, but I'm very happy with my boyfriend."
But Christine has already found her very own Prince Charming, marrying warehouse supervisor Pablo Smith, 37, in 2012.
She added: "Pablo does see the resemblance between Meghan and I, he does get why people think we are the same person.
"He gets teased a lot by his friends who say that he's Prince Harry, but he actually looks nothing like him - he looks more like John Legend!"
