“The night of the royal wedding last year I had a lot of different people texting me and telling me how much I looked like her. It was funny.
“I often get stopped by strangers out in public, and at times when Meghan is receiving loads of media attention, it can happen several times a week.
“It happens a lot in clothing stores, with the retail assistants commenting on it.
“There was one time I was at my local supermarket and one of the cashiers kept staring at me.
“She looked at my husband and looked back at me, and said ‘if he had red hair, I would have sworn you were Meghan Markle’.
“Then she called other members of staff to come over to have a look, it was really funny.
“I’ve been at parties and people will look at me and say I remind them of someone famous.
“They’ll have a think about it and then click their fingers and say, ‘oh it’s Meghan Markle!’”
Bianca said she is extremely flattered to be compared to the duchess and believes that their similarities are more than skin-deep.
And while Meghan Markle’s background is Caucasian and African American, Bianca has thanked her strong Italian heritage for her striking features.
She said: “It’s very flattering as I do really admire her. She is a beautiful and incredible woman.
“I love what she stands for, I think she is someone that all women can look up to and admire.
“I’m a personal trainer, so I love helping people and encouraging women to be the best versions of themselves, which is obviously something she believes in and loves to do.
“It’s become a running joke in my family. I’ll turn up to family events and my relatives will say ‘Meghan Markle has arrived!’.
“It’s been a fun ride and I’ve had lots of laughs about it.
“I think she is amazing, so it is certainly a compliment that I’m always happy to hear.”
