A 21-year-old woman who has suffered trolling online due to resembling Meghan Markle has opened up on people's reactions to her.
Sidney uploaded a Tik Tok containing various photos comparing herself to Meghan Markle where the two look alike. The clip went viral racking up over 654,000 views and 73,000 likes.

Sidney uploaded a Tik Tok on her resemblance to Meghan Markle
“Generally, people say good things, with the most common one online being: ‘Wow, I thought this was Meghan Markle’ or ‘You look just like Meghan Markle, she’s beautiful.’ And this is similar in person.
“I began being compared to her around the time she became popular for dating Prince Harry, but it started becoming most frequent in 2020.
“I think at some angles I look like her if my hair is straightened, but in general, I never really think I do – unless someone points it out.
“I find we have similar facial features, specifically our smiles.”
At the start of her viral video, Sidney writes: “Since almost everyone says I look like Meghan Markle, here are some pics where I kinda see it.”
She captioned the post: "I’m really rinsing this lookalike thing now #fyp #lookalike #meghanmarkle"
Sidney added during her interview with NeedToKnow.Online: “I find it a huge compliment to be considered her lookalike, as she’s a stunning woman.
“It’s hard with regards to her as a person because I don’t really know much about her – but from what I do know, she seems to be a nice person.
Sidney says she does not have an opinion on Meghan Markle
“I don’t really have much of an opinion on them, as they’re two human beings and deserve to have a voice just as everyone else does.
“I’ve been told to make something out of looking like her, especially since making my TikTok.
"But as nice as it is that people comment on it, I don’t want to base my life and reality on someone else’s looks. I want to be known for being myself.“And, it does have its perks at times, as it gets me attention, which can be fun.
“For example, my friends and I got free drinks because people were convinced that we were related – it’s very funny.”
