A mum who set up an Instagram account for her adorable toddler accidentally stole the limelight after fans spotted her incredible likeness to Meghan Markle.

Mother-of-two Akeisha Land, 39, from Missouri, says she always gets compared to the Duchess both online and when she's out and about in her daily life.

But after sharing a photo of herself on her daughter's 158,000 follower profile this week, she racked up 13,000 'likes'.

Some who commented said they thought she actually was Meghan Markle.

Akeisha happily said she'd take the comparison to the "gorgeous" Duchess as a compliment - even jokingly volunteering to step in and attend events on her behalf.

She told the Daily Mail: "I'll have random people coming up and saying 'has anyone ever told you that you look like... I always giggle before they even finish saying who because I know exactly who they're going to say because I've heard it so much; especially recently since I've been wearing my hair straight.

"Even my close friends and family say I look like her and even though I myself don't see the similarities, I definitely take it as a huge compliment as she's just drop-dead gorgeous.

"I always joke and say I need to have someone reach out to her people to let them know I'm always up for filling in for her as her doppelgänger if she doesn't want to go to any of the events she's invited to."
