LOOK HOW Meghan Markle might look if she were to go Down Under via this stunning Ozzie-lookalike who is such a doppelganger she was stopped by strangers and asked how her wedding plans were going in the lead up to this year’s Royal wedding.
Gorgeous pictures show retail manager, Stephanie Murray (28) from Canberra, Australia, channelling her inner Duchess of Sussex by emulating her effortless casual-chic look in jeans and trench coat and wearing an oversized cardigan reminiscent of those worn by Meghan’s Suits character, Rachel Zane in the hit series.
Other breath-taking images offer an insight into what the newest high profile member of the Royal Family’s wedding dress shopping could have looked like with Stephanie excitedly trying on a variety of elegant gowns in a range of styles, one of which looks not dissimilar to the Givenchy dress worn by the 36-year-old Duchess as she walked down the aisle of St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle a month ago.
For Stephanie, who is often compared to the former actress, comparisons began in 2011 when Suits first aired on Australian TV.
“Everyone kept telling me to watch the series as they thought I looked exactly like the character, Rachel Zane. After watching it, I was hooked. I am a total fan of Suits,” she said.
“Meghan Markle is so elegant and graceful and has been so poised throughout the unveiling of her relationship with Prince Harry – even though there have been rumours saying she received a lot of abuse and backlash due to ‘not being good enough’ and of African American descent.
“People can be so cruel and nasty but she handled herself so well. I love both of them, I think they are fabulous and they make a gorgeous couple.”
Comments on Stephanie’s likeness to Prince Harry’s new wife became a daily occurrence in the months leading up to their big day and she was even asked by one starstruck customer how her plans for the wedding were going.
Trying on wedding dresses made Stephanie to start thinking about how she would like her own dream wedding to look like.
“My dream wedding dress would either be Berta Sicily – Muse, Briony or Bridget. Any of them would be fine,” she added.
“I would say [to Meghan] keep doing what you’re doing.
“From her humanitarian work to advocating equality and empowerment for women, she is doing amazing things for this world and the people in it and together they will move mountains.”
