Royal Resemblance: People Noticed Uncanny Similarities Between Duchesses Meghan Markle And Wallis Simpson
We still can’t get over the beautiful summer dress the Duchess of Sussex wore a few days ago! At the Commonwealth Secretariat’s Youth Leadership Workshop, Meghan sported a stylish, bright yellow dress by Brandon Maxwell.
And while some people were absolutely obsessed with the American beauty’s fashion choice, some rushed to various social media platforms to comment on the resemblance between Meghan and another duchess, Wallis Simpson.
Apparently, it’s the updo and facial features that remind people of Edward VIII’s wife. Besides, both duchesses have beautiful dark eyes and similar nose shape.
Do you also think they look alike?
Meghan and Wallis have many things in common, besides appearance. Both were American divorcees before being married into the royal family. And both met their future royal husbands at the age of 34!
But unlike Meghan, Wallis and Edward VIII’s romance caused a constitutional crisis, as he even had to abdicate to marry his beloved. Now, both Prince Harry and his father Prince Charles are married to divorcees.

Harry will rue the day he married Meghan....they will keep us entertained for years. Same as his great, great uncle Edward and Wallis Simpson.....— Sally Gordon (@SallyGordon378) July 4, 2018
Still, some people believe that there’s nothing these two women have in common. Some public members think that Simpson was only willing to take, spend money on jewelry, and was uninterested in helping others.
The key difference between Meghan Markle and Wallis Simpson is that Meghan Markle is not a Nazi sympathizer.— Einstürzende Joe Biden (@MaxGenecov) December 6, 2017
Wallis Simpson happily toured concentration camps in the 30s. Don't act like she and Meghan Markle would be on the same side of anything.— Abigail Nussbaum (@NussbaumAbigail) May 19, 2018
On the other hand, despite being American, divorced, and biracial, Meghan is definitely a uniting figure. Besides, she has a kind heart as she’s known as an activist who likes to be involved in humanitarian work.
