Cape Town - With her full lips, brown eyes and pert nose she unmistakably resembles the newlywed royal – and not to mention those luscious locks which tumble down her shoulders.

Erica Lauren has heard she looks like Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, so often she can’t even deny it anymore.

"I can't necessarily deny there are some similarities," she says.  "I'm also half back and half white like she is, and I even saw a photo of Meghan in the news from when she was young and it looked so much like I did at the same age."

According to the International Business Times, Erica is a plus-size model who’s gained quite a following on Instagram.

While her 175 000 followers laud her for proudly flaunting her curves and oozing confidence in an industry notorious for pressuring women to be skinny, it’s her uncanny likeness to the former Suits actress that has them losing their minds!

"Wow! Sisters!" one commented.

"Definitely have the entire Jennifer Lopez package! You’re a natural beauty with wonderful curves and lovely hair and skin! Oh, so nice!" said another.

Whether she resembles a duchess or a sexy songbird, Erica says she’s "extremely flattered".

"It's so funny – from early on in modelling, someone would comment on a photo every so often, 'You look like the girl from Suits!'

"I had never seen the show before, so I had to google her. I find Meghan stunning so I’m extremely flattered!"
