THIS MEGHAN Markle superfan dedicates her spare time copying the Duchess of Sussex’s impeccable fashion choices and sharing her ‘repli-Meghan’ looks on Instagram.


Actuary, Linda Martinez (31) from Mexico City, Mexico, first saw Meghan Markle as her Rachel Zane alter-ego in American hit series, Suits and soon became a fan of her sophisticated dress sense and was in awe of her own personal backstory and humanitarian work.

Ever since Prince Harry and Meghan announced they were dating in 2016, Linda, who is also an avid royal watcher, has followed the now pregnant Duchess of Sussex’s wardrobe choices with a close eye, shopping around for a low-cost alternative, or when her budget allows, snatching up the original piece before it sells out.


Incredible pictures show Linda channelling her inner Meghan whilst emulating the Duchess’ Sentaler coat outfit she wore to her first ever Christmas church service at Sandringham in 2017, the Club Monaco dress worn by the expectant first-time mum on a visit to the Hubb Community Kitchen which was opened after the Grenfell Tower disaster and a Reformation inspired sundress which was worn on the Sussexes’ tour of Australia in October last year.

Other images show Linda’s take on the blue and white floral Oscar de la Renta dress that the Suits star wore to Princess Diana’s niece, Celia McCorquodale’s wedding in June last year and her spin on Meghan’s Wimbledon outfit worn to the tennis competition with sister-in-law Kate Middleton.


Linda has ‘repli-Meghaned’ around 50 of the Duchess’ better known looks and has spent up to £620 (800USD) on a single coat.

“I’ve always followed the royal family but when I learned about the engagement of Meghan and Harry, I got involved more with Meghan,” said Linda.


“I was a Meghan fan because of Suits but when I did my research and I found out about her family and work, and all the things she has done to get what she has and where she is today, I started to admire her a lot and wanted to be like her.

“I wanted to be like her as a human being, she’s an empowered woman and has the most incredible style.


“I didn’t have a defined style before and when I realised that I felt confident in the neutral colours, sophisticated combinations and this elegant yet comfortable way to dress I loved it.

“I really believe that someone like Meghan can feel confident, look good and still be a great human being.


“I guess is not easy for her [Meghan] to be there in the royal family with all the prejudices in society and classy people who maybe would only accept royals before.

“Right now, we see her living a great life, but we don’t know all the things she has had to change or accept to get that. I admire her strength and her kindness with people and that she is true to herself through it all.”


Linda is always looking for a bargain and snaps up her Meghan inspired outfits from Club Monaco, J.Crew, Aritzia, Zara, H&M, Mango and even Amazon. Her all time favourite look of the Duchess is her stunning Givenchy wedding dress worn at her nuptials to Prince Harry in May last year.

Linda is excited for the royal couple’s baby due this Spring.


“I was so happy for them when they announced the news and I’m quite sure it was their decision to have the baby regardless of what others would say about it,” said Linda.

“It’s amazing because she never stopped the royal agenda either.


“I love fashion, so I keep my eyes on the low-cost brands because sometimes they have things that are alike to Meghan’s outfits. If my budget allows me, I buy the original outfit, if it’s not sold out.

“I just want to express my admiration for her by sharing my looks, my travels, what I love and makes me happy.


“I’d like to express that a woman is free to express whatever she wants and to be a successful and happy woman no matter what people say.”
