Meghan Markle Might Have Found Her Lookalike in Missouri Mom Blogger Akeisha Land

A Missouri mom blogger had internet users doing a double-take over her striking resemblance to the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle. The overwhelmed mom is now struggling to get used to all the attention.

Akeisha Land's world got a lot more interesting on Monday when she shared an innocent selfie with her daughter, Greyson. The Instagram influencer only wanted to promote their mother-daughter sweatshirts but ended up getting more than she expected.

In no time, Instagram users flocked the comment section with remarks about how much Akeisha resembled Meghan. And they were not wrong. Anyone could easily mistake Akeisha for Meghan with their similar hair color, physique, and soft smirk.

"I think she's gorgeous, so to be mistaken for a royal is definitely quite a compliment."

Even more incredibly, not only can Akeisha pass for a Meghan look-alike, but in the photo, which caught people's attention, even Greyson looked like a mini Meghan Markle.

An #usie with my littlest love in our matching “LOVE” sweatshirts from @coolkiidzwear ❤️ • What I love about these sweatshirts is not only their obvious adorableness, but also the fact that they aren’t super thick. Which is perfect for fall and winter because you can layer it with other things and not worry about sweating out your hair (ain’t nobody got time for that! 💁🏽‍♀️). And if your kid(s) are anything like mine, they get hot real fast running around all day, so lightweight layers are imperative. I also love that you’re able to take the layers off to rock it in the spring for those still cool days. These sweatshirts are perfect for year round cuteness! • Have a great week friends and remember to tell the people you care about that you love them... and as always, keep it cute! 😘

Akeisha's photo was posted via the Instagram page she runs for her daughter. The account contains more pics of Greyson and her big brother Tristan and only a few of Akeisha and her husband, Preston.

Before now, the Missouri mom mostly remained in the background. Getting noticed by folks from all over the world because of one heartwarming picture is taking some getting used to.

"You very much looks like Markle!" one Instagram user exclaimed. "Your (sic) beautiful! But let's hope your as beautiful INSIDE! Your whole family are beautiful."

"Even I had to sit here and say to myself .... 'ain't that Meghan?'" another netizen chimed in as a third added: "Perfect. Just realized you look like Megan Markle. Has anyone ever told you that?"

Per PEOPLE, discovering Akeisha led social media users to dig up old photos of the mom-of-two, which only showed more resemblance. A set of selfies with her son posted in August 2019 was one of the uncovered treasures.

Akeisha spoke to E! News about how unexpected attention makes her feel. The blogger has been trying to adjust to being in the spotlight instead of her cute kids, and she says it's been a learning curve.

CONFESSION: These photos weren’t taken today; and today I’m not nearly as cool, calm, and tough as these photos make me seem (swipe to see them all), because today, I sent my baby, my first born (with the little dimple in his left cheek), off to his first day of Kindergarten. So needless to say, I’m a mess 😅 • QUESTION: So he was actually supposed to start school last Thursday, but we’d already had our family vacation planned before I knew his official start date. So he technically missed his first two days. Would you let your kiddos miss their first day(s) of school for a previously planned vacation? • Sidenote: Check out our stories to see photos/video from this morning and to see how much he’s grown over the years! Extra Sidenote, how amazing do my blade & shade eyebrows by @glambygeegee look?! I was wearing zero makeup and had just got done working out and they look FABULOUS. Thank you brow gods for @glambygeegee!! 🙌🏾 • #tristan #photooftheday #firstdayofschool #school #son #eyebrows #letthembelittle #candidchildhood #momtog #mixedkids #cutekids #funny #browgoals #parenthood #parentlife #parenting #mce #handsome #gq #goals #instafamouskidsofficial #motherhood #honestmotherhood #ifko #explorepage #mcm

Akeisha told the outlet:

"Literally every comment is about me. Normally it's like, 'Oh, she's so cute,' and that sort of thing but it's all about me this time. It's very different! I'm not used to being in the forefront. I'm used to it being about my kids. It's overwhelming."

MY HAIR JOURNEY: Ok so do y’all remember back in December when I posted how I’d had serious postpartum hair loss and I’d be starting a new hair journey with @merakigrowth starting in January? Well I did and look at these results y’all (swipe to see my 6-month progress)!! ❤️ • These results are everything!! Y’all don’t understand how many years and how many different things I’ve tried, to no avail, to get my edges to grow and for my hair to stop breaking and shedding so much (big shout out to @toppikhair fibers for helping me hide my non-existent edges during the struggle 🙌🏾). The photos probably don’t do justice on showing just how thick and long my hair is now. Because the healthier my hair has gotten my curls are springing up even more so they seem shorter than they really are (shout out to @bouncecurl for beautifying them). But it wasn’t even length I cared about (that’s just been a bonus), what’s truly amazed me is the reduction in hair shedding/breakage resulting in thicker and fuller hair. And EDGESSSSSSS!! ❤️ • Also, the braid length comparison doesn’t do justice either because in my January photo my shirt was kind of bunched up making it seem as if my hair was actually longer than it really was. If my shirt was pulled taut like it was in the April photo my guess is the braids would have actually only gone to about 9 or 10 inches, that means I’ve had like 5-6 inches of growth in this short time (the average YEARLY rate for African hair types is only 4 inches; and it’s 5-6 inches for other races)!! I’ve only been using the oil for 6 months total and I think these photos speak for themselves! I can not say enough about @merakigrowth so my hair is saying it all, THANK YOU! • Want to try it yourself?

"I take it as a huge compliment," Akeisha said of the attention she's been getting as a Meghan Markle look-alike. "I think she's gorgeous, so to be mistaken for a royal is definitely quite a compliment."

Akeisha now plans to get used to being more in front of the camera, and setting up an Instagram page for herself is not out of the question. "Yes, I definitely want to put myself out there more and not just my kiddos," she added.
