A Meghan Markle doppelgänger claims that she is mistaken for the Duchess of Sussex at least four times a week.

Yet despite their uncanniness, Danielle Harris’s 2017 nuptials were far from Harry and Meghan’s royal ceremony.

The 33-year-old married husband, Wu Olsen, in Arizona with a £37,000 budget – far from the newlyweds’s £32 million big day. Instead of Elton John, the couple danced the night away to a local DJ and only invited 115 guests in comparison to the royal pair’s 600-strong guest list.

“We had such an elegant and modern wedding,” she revealed. “It was very, very fun and I’m not just saying that because I was the bride. Our guests partied into the early hours.”

Though she did admittedly envy certain aspects of the St George’s Chapel ceremony and who can blame her?

“I wouldn’t change our wedding for the world, but I was really jealous of Meghan’s choir – they were amazing,” she said. “After watching her walk down the aisle I thought that maybe I should have worn a veil too.”

She added: “My dad walked me down the aisle and that was the perfect moment, but I really admired how Meghan walked almost the whole way by herself.”

But the 33-year-old preferred her own wedding dress to the former actress’s Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy gown which reportedly boasted a £200,000 price tag.

“I got up at 4am to watch the wedding and I cried when they said their vows,” she admitted. “Her dress wasn’t my favourite. I preferred my own, but I thought she looked absolutely beautiful.”

Danielle was first mistaken for the former actress four years ago when a friend told her that she looked just like Rachel Zane, Meghan’s paralegal alter ego, in hit television series ‘Suits’.

“I didn’t think much of it until the past year or so when Meghan and Harry’s relationship became public,” she continued. “If I had five dollars for everyone who has said I look like her over the last 12 months I would be so rich.”

Consequently, Danielle has considered launching a career as a professional lookalike and her husband has even suggested that he will be her manager.

But in the meantime, she’s just happy with the confidence boost.

“We’re both mixed race and I also have freckles like Meghan,’ she said. “She’s so beautiful I think it’s a huge compliment when people tell me we look alike. It makes me laugh.”
