HRH the Duchess of Cambridge – more commonly known to her adoring Royalists as Kate Middleton – has one of the most recognisable face in the world.
But, apparently, Kate Middleton isn’t the only one with Kate Middleton’s face.
Nope, according to Heidi Agan and her admirers, she too is blessed with the delicate English rose features of the future Queen of England.
The former Italian restaurant waitress used to earn £7.70 an hour, scraping by to support her two kids with tips.
After her lucrative career as a Kate Middleton lookalike took off, after only two months he was able to quit waitressing, she tells This Is Insider.
Heidi recalled how the customers saw the resemblance before she did herself, saying:
I was really lucky with the way things worked out and probably never would have got into this line of work if I hadn’t been a waitress in the first place. It was the customers who got me into being a Kate lookalike.
Since then, Agan has appeared in TV and print media and mingled with guests corporate events and parties, as well as her fellow Royal lookalikes.
Job opportunites are plentiful for lookalikes – particularly of such regal features – in Europe, Australia and China.
The finances are wonderful when they happen, but I don’t have to send my kids to daycare anymore. I can pick and choose when I work. And so for our family that has been incredible.”
Now she’s the ‘UK’s most realistic Kate Middleton lookalike’ – the official Kate double – and is enjoying being treated like royalty…
If only when she’s working.
