Royal resemblance! Air hostess, 32, who calls herself ‘the next best thing’ to Meghan Markle and works as a lookalike reveals she plans to audition to play the Duchess in a new film

  • Christine Primrose Mathis, 32, from New Jersey, is the double of Meghan Markle
  • Air hostess was first told of likeness when the then-actress was starring in Suits 
  • On a trip to London, many were shocked to discover she wasn’t actually the royal
  • Has signed up to a lookalike agency and is auditioning to play the royal in a film

An air hostess who calls herself the ‘next best thing’ to Meghan Markle has revealed how plans to audition to play the Duchess in a new film. 

Christine Primrose Mathis, 32, from Perth Amboy, New Jersey, first started receiving comments five years ago while Meghan Markle, 38, was starring in Suits.

The mother-of-one revealed that as Meghan’s fame grew and she got engaged to Prince Harry, 35, she decided to cash in on the similarities and sign up to be a lookalike.

Christine, who has since done photoshoots and is currently auditioning to play the royal in a film, called the job ‘a dream’, revealing: ‘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.’

The air hostess explained her flowing dark hair and glowing complexion  often draws comparisons with the Duchess of Sussex (pictured, at Mountbatten Festival of Music at the Royal Albert Hall)


The mother-of-one revealed how she didn’t pay much attention to comments about their similarities until the former actress got engaged to Prince Harry. (Left: Christine with a Prince Harry lookalike, right: Meghan and Harry at Canada House in London in January) 

Christine revealed how her likeness to Meghan was first spotted years ago, before the Duchess joined the royal family.

She said: ‘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.’ 

‘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.’

But as Meghan’s fame grew, Christine got more comparisons, because she sports the same dark brunette locks and glowing skin as the royal. 

Christine’s similarities to Meghan were even obvious from childhood, with the air hostess boasting the same glowing complexion and almond-shaped eyes  


As Meghan’s fame grew, more people began to notice Christine’s similarities to the Duchess, with the air hostess bombarded with comments  while visiting London (left, Christine, and right, Meghan) 

And with her brunette wavy locks, natural glowing complexion and her own glittering tiara, it’s no surprise that strangers take a double glance. 

During a visit to London, Christine was bombarded with people who were shocked to learn that she wasn’t the real Meghan, and on her return to the States she signed up for a modelling agency.

Since then, she has been flown out to LA for a photoshoot, had video requests from fans and is planning on auditioning for a new movie to play the role of Meghan Markle. 

She revealed: ‘At first, I was confused but I definitely took it as a compliment because I thought she was so beautiful. 

Christine has said working as a Meghan-lookalike is a ‘dream’ job, but admitted she sometimes receives criticism on social media over emphasising their similarities

‘Last year, I signed up with a lookalike agency because after they got married, it became a lot more frequent.’

But her similarities to Meghan haven’t been all good, with Christine revealing how some people have criticised her online over the likeness.

She said: ‘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 mother-of-one added: ‘One time, I was coming back from a photoshoot in LA and an airport worker was so excited because she thought I was Meghan Markle but then she saw my passport and got embarrassed, but I just find it funny’. 

Christine explained: ‘I posted a TikTok where I dressed like Meghan Markle and people couldn’t believe the resemblance.

Christine said she believes because ‘a lot of people look up’ to Meghan, they contact her because she is ‘the next best thing’

‘I have had a lot more opportunities from looking like her; she’s so famous.’

She added: ‘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.

‘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.’
