Kate Middleton professional kookalike Kate Bevan

Font Size:

When Prince William and Kate Middleton announced their engagement, another woman named Kate’s life changed forever.

Kate Bevan, 21, bears such a striking resemblance to the princess-to-be that she decided to quit her job and launch a business venture based on her looks: She’s going to be a professional Kate Middleton lookalike.

“I went out to buy a sandwich and I was stopped four times by people in the street,” Bevan, a pharmaceutical assistant, tells the U.K.’s Daily Mail.

It seems she’ll do well with the new gig: Bevan had been told for years that she looked like Middleton, but since the engagement, “it’s been unreal,” she says. “Nearly everyone who comes through the pharmacy door makes a comment and gawps in total shock.”
