This just in from the “You couldn’t make it up” department: Kate Middleton’s doppelganger is also named Kate.
The 21-year-old Brit, Kate Bevan, has decided to quit her job and start a business based on her looks. “I went out to buy a sandwich and I was stopped four times by people in the street,” the pharmaceutical assistant, told the Daily Mail, whose very raison d’être is a story such as this. To be fair, when most people in England get stopped in the street after buying a sandwich, the question tends to be, “are you really going to eat that?”
But while the easy part is looking like Kate, the tougher task is to actually sound like her. No such problem for Bevan, who is taking dialect lessons in order to ditch her rather nasal West Midlands twang and replace it with Middleton’s dulcet tones. After us Ms. Bevan: How now brown cow.
Bevan can also add some gravitas to the flood of bookings that will surely come her way — the phone is ringing off the hook, right? — as she just got married herself this year. “My husband looks more like Harry than William,” said Bevan. Even NewsFeed’s runaway imagination is having to go some to accept that a double act of that nature will fly with the public. Don’t call us, we’ll call you and see you down the front next April 29.
