This woman, who has been dubbed “UK’s most real Kate Middleton-like” by many, has shared how she got from being a single mom to working as a waitress and then traveling the globe. She was also asked for selfies with strangers.
Mother-of-two Heidi Agan, 40, from Northamptonshire, started working as Kate’s double in 2012, before signing to London-based agency Susan Scott Lookalikes.
Now Heidi is flown as far as Australia and can be paid ‘thousands’ to do half a day’s work, and has revealed how she scouts Zara, TK Maxx and liExpress to keep up with Kate, 39, but ‘couldn’t deal with the attention all the time’.
Heidi must also be attentive to her body language. Heidi noted that Kate “always licks at Westminster Abbey” and her dresses’ hemlines have dropped in recent years.

Speaking to My London News, she said she is often mistaken for Kate and asked for a picture: ‘I wouldn’t want to have that all the time —I wouldn’t want to be her— but the snapshot of her life is really cool.’
Revealing that her work schedule is as hectic as Kate’s and that ‘no two jobs are the same’, Heidi can earn anything from ‘£500 to thousands’.
Explaining how she keeps up with Kate’s fashion, she continued: ‘I try to invest in pieces that I think she’ll re-wear, or block colours that I can wear on multiple occasions.When she wears something from Zara, you jump in the car and you go and find it’.

Heidi is now openly revealing that her clothing has become redundant due to the new trend of lower hemlines.
Heidi also wants to balance her home and work life. She discredits the myth that “lookalikes” are always looking for attention.
Explaining that she ‘does the job then goes home’, she added: ‘I think there’s a huge misconception about lookalikes, that they go around looking like that person all the time, trying to seek attention. This is not how it works.
