Many people look like famous public figures, but one woman is now using her face to cash in on Kate Middleton.
Heidi Agan, 32, recently quit her job as a waitress at a burger restaurant to take up the full time job of impersonating the Duchess of Cambridge, according to the Daily Mail. Agan, mother of two, said she was constantly mistaken for for being Kate Middleton and that even her own three-year-old daughter can't tell who is who.
"People would come in and point at me and say, 'that's her,' Agan said to the Daily Mail. "I've had other people come up to me during jobs convinced I'm Kate. When my daughter sees [the Duchess] in a magazine, she points and says, 'There you are mummy.' She's turned into a right little royalist."
Agan previously worked as a waitress at Frankie and Benny's where after receiving the attention of so many people, she decided to use her looks to her advantage and gave her final notice. In her new role as a lookalike, the former waitress now charges up to approximately $1,000 per appearance, which is a considerable bump in pay when compared to the $9 per hour she was making at the restaurant.
The Susan Scott Lookalikes agency has signed her up and helped her get ready for her new role. Part of her preparation includes getting the proper Middleton attire. Agan says she now owns several outfits including her own version of the famous blue engagement dress Middleton wore and others featured during the Duchess's overseas trip as part of the Diamond Jubilee celebration.
Agan commented on the recent issue of the Middleton's topless photos: "I felt really bad for Kate when the photos were published as she was on a private trip with her husband. If someone had done that to me, I would go to the police. She and William don't get any time out and they were just trying to be a normal couple. It's a terrible invasion of their privacy."
She added, "I haven't been asked to go topless on any of the jobs yet- and I certainly wouldn't do it because I'm a mum of two!"
