Duchess, is that you?

A woman in Kansas City, Missouri, is blowing people away with her striking resemblance to Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex.

Akeisha Land, 39, has gone viral after she posted a few photos of herself on Instagram looking almost like the former Meghan Markle’s twin, from her beautiful smile to her glowing skin and flowing black hair.

Land doesn’t often share selfies on Instagram, focusing instead on cute photos of her daughter, Greyson, 3, and her son, Tristan, 6.

So when she posted these photos of herself recently, fans did a major double take.

“Even i had to sit here and say to myself .... ‘ain’t that Meghan?’” one person commented on her recent Instagram post.

“Omg I thought you were Meghan Markle for a sec😭 , so cute,” someone else chimed in.

“I think you are cousins with Duchess of Sussex…” another fan wrote.

Land says this isn't the first time people have told her she looks like the duchess.

"I often have people come up to me, even people that know me, and say, 'Has anyone ever told you that you look like ...' and because I’ve heard it so much over the past couple of years it always makes me laugh, because I know who they’re going to say before they even finish their sentence," she told TODAY Style in an email.

Still, she's been overwhelmed by the huge reaction her photos have been getting online.

"It’s so crazy to me to see my face all over the place just because people think I look like her," she told TODAY. "And I’m usually very much 'behind the scenes' and like it that way. I’m just a normal mama from Missouri!"

Land said she is definitely flattered by the comparison.

“What’s so funny to me is that I honestly don’t even see the resemblance! But I certainly take it as a compliment because she’s so beautiful," she told TODAY.

Land and her family don't really follow the latest news from British royal family, but said her kids and her husband, Preston, have been teasing her about her resemblance to Meghan.

"My kiddos have no clue who any of the royals are," she said. "They were calling me 'duchess' yesterday, though, because my hubby told them to, so that was pretty hilarious!"

No word on whether the duchess herself has seen the photos of her doppelgänger — but if she did, it might almost feel like looking in a mirror!
