A former waitress is making $1,000 an hour after quitting her waitressing job when patrons kept mistaking her for Kate Middleton.
Heidi Agan, 32, was working as a waitress at a Frankie and Benny’s restaurant outside London when she noticed that patrons were continually asking her if she was the Duchess of Cambridge. She decided to use the uncanny resemblance to her advantage, quitting her job and signing with the Susan Scott Lookalikes agency. According to AOL, the career change has seen Agan go from a $9.80 an hour job at Frankie & Benny's, to earning more than $1,000 an hour as the future Queen's lookalike.
Agan told Daily Mail the strangest request she’s has so far received is to play a game of Twister with lookalikes of Prince William and the Queen for a photo-shoot. "I guess people want to put us in real-life situations that they would never see the Royal Family in, like playing Twister. It’s a huge difference from working in a restaurant and it pays better. It’s a really fun job as I’m doing something different every day."

In her interview with the Daily Mail she said: "I haven’t been asked to go topless on any of the jobs yet - and I certainly wouldn’t do it because I’m a mum-of-two! I felt really bad for Kate when the photos were published as she was on a private trip with her husband. If someone had done that to me I would go to the police. She and William don’t get any time out and they were just trying to be a normal couple. It’s a terrible invasion of their privacy."
Agan has stocked up on some of the Duchess’s most memorable dresses, however, one of which is the blue Issa dress the Duchess wore when she and Prince William announced their engagement.
The Christian Post reports when Agan's daughter sees [the Duchess] in a magazine, she points and says, "There you are mummy. She's turned into a right little royalist."
