Air hostess gets asked if she is Meghan Markle by baffled passengers up to 10 times a day

Airline passengers have been left baffled after encountering a flight attendant who is the spitting image of Meghan Markle.

Christine Mathis, 32, an air hostess for the JetBlue airline, has revealed she has been likened to the Duchess of Sussex, 38, ever since Markle starred in the TV show Suits in 2011.

As the actress’s fame grew and she began a relationship with Prince Harry, 35, her doppelgänger from New Jersey was stopped more and more.

Now Mathis claims she gets approached up to 10 times a day by passengers and members of the public who are convinced that she's a celebrity.

After years of being mistaken for the famous actress, Mathis has signed up with an agency to find work as a lookalike.

The mum-of-one said: "I started getting mistaken for Meghan years ago when I worked in first-class – passengers would stop me and say I looked like 'that girl from Suits'.

"It happened a few times so I obviously googled Meghan and it was really flattering – she's absolutely stunning, so it's definitely a compliment.

"I do see the resemblance! Meghan and I are both mixed race – my dad is African-American and Italian and her mum is African-American, maybe they're related somehow!

"When she started dating Harry, I was getting stopped more and more, and when they got married, it became a daily occurrence of people asking me if I was Meghan.

"I flew from LA to New York for work one day and security thought that I was her until they checked my passport which was hilarious.

"I also had a mole removed and my dermatologist was convinced that I was Meghan and just using a fake name to get the work done secretly!

"Passengers always tell me I look like her and say to me: 'You're married to a prince, why are you working as an air hostess?'"

"It happens so often but I really don't mind it – she's an amazing woman so it's really flattering to be mistaken for being her."

Mathis found her own prince long before Markle did, falling in love with warehouse supervisor Pablo Smith, 37, in 2012.

The couple also became parents before the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, welcoming their daughter Alana in February 2018.

Mathis has already done a photoshoot with a Harry lookalike for her agency so she can start getting work as Markle.

She said: "I've wanted to be an actress ever since I was a little girl and people are so convinced that I am actually Meghan that I thought, why not see if I can get some jobs pretending to be her?

"I want to do corporate and TV work, but my absolute dream would be to play Meghan in a Lifetime movie about her.

"I only just signed up to an agency and have already done a shoot with a Prince Harry lookalike, which was a lot of fun but also weird pretending to be with another guy!

"We did the shoot at the Terranea resort and we were stopped at least 20 times. People were even taking pictures with us, it was a really fun experience.

"A lot of men do stop me to tell me I look like Meghan and use it as a kind of chat-up line, which is bizarre, but I'm very happy with my boyfriend.

"Pablo does see the resemblance between Meghan and I, he does get why people think we are the same person.

"He gets teased a lot by his friends who say that he's Prince Harry, but he actually looks nothing like him – he looks more like John Legend!"
