Lorraine viewers stunned by Emmerdale actress Fiona Wade’s uncanny resemblance to Duchess of Sussex 

Lorraine viewers were left stunned by Emmerdale actress Fiona Wade’s uncanny resemblance to Meghan Markle on today’s show. 

The actress, 41, from London, is a dead ringer for the royal and was compared to the Duchess of Sussex, 39, by host Lorraine Kelly after appearing donning a blouse similar to the blue and white striped Ralph Lauren shirt to Wimbledon in 2018. 

The soap star insisted she was ‘very flattered’ by the hosts comments, and admitted she’s been compared to Meghan. 

Viewers were quick to comment on the resemblance, with one saying Fiona is the Duchess’ ‘double’, while another admitted she thought it was Meghan being interviewed when she turned on her TV.
