Mom sends Instagram wild as followers are convinced she's Meghan Markle's twin
One woman by the name of Akeisha Land is taking Instagram by storm due to her striking resemblance to Meghan Markle.
When the blogger from Missouri began posting photos of herself on her account - where she typically uploads snaps of her adorable children - her followers instantly started drawing comparisons between her and the Duchess of Sussex.
The comparisons particularly came flooding in when Akeisha posted a photo of herself with her daughter Greyson.
“You very much look like Markle! Your [sic] beautiful! But let’s hope your as beautiful INSIDE! Your whole family are beautiful,” one person commented.
“Even I had to sit here and say to myself… ‘ain’t that Meghan?'” another wrote.
“Omg I thought you were Meghan Markle for a sec, so cute,” added a third.
Check out Meghan Markle's heartwarming interaction with a fan:
“It’s been crazy,” Akeisha told E! News of newfound online fame. “The outpouring of comments that have been coming in just off a photo I posted of me and Greyson. Literally every comment about me. It’s very different! I’m not used to being in the forefront. I’m used to it being about my kids. It’s overwhelming.”
“I take it as a huge compliment. I think she’s gorgeous,” she added.
Now, the real Meghan Markle is still very much in the spotlight in the wake of her and Prince Harry's decision to step back from the royal family in order to pursue financial independence.
Earlier this month, it was announced in a lengthy statement that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would be stepping back as senior royals whilst planning to become "financially independent". The couple, who had just returned home from a six-week break in Canada, revealed that they plan to split their time between the UK and North America.
In a statement posted on their official Instagram, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex wrote:
“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment.
We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity.
We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.”
