A  24-year-old French cyclist competing at the Rio Olympics bears an uncanny resemblance to Kate Middleton. Take away the tan, darken her hair and you have Kate's twin! The Internet is going wild over Pauline Ferrand-Prevot as the French version of Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge. As you can see in the video below, Pauline does look a lot like Kate, but only in certain pictures. 

Uncanny resemblance

Some of the other pictures of the cyclist, you might not see too much the resemblance to Kate, but in other pictures she appears to be a dead ringer.

 It seems spotting look-alike celebrity faces has become somewhat of a trend in Rio and this is the second celebrity look-alike to make the news in the last view days. Leonardo DiCaprio's look-alike, Brady Ellison, who is an American archer has made the headlines over the past few days because he could easily pass as DiCaprio's double in a movie.

 

First Leo, now Kate!

These young athletes are in fine shape and they are really toned so this has to be taken as a compliment by both Kate and Leonardo.

With Kate and Pauline, they do have the same arch in their eyebrows and their lips are also very similar, suggests Vanity Fair. If you put Pauline's blonde locks in a pony tail and tie Kate's brown mane back off her face, the look is about as close as you can get without being a biological twin.

Look-alike spotting a trend in Rio?

Pauline is a high-achiever as she became the first person in the world to ever to hold three world cycling titles all at the same time.

She's won the world road title, world cyclo-cross title and the world mountain-bike title, so she's made history in cycling. It is not known how Pauline is feeling about all this attention because she looks like Kate, especially when she's worked for years to get to this world competition. Hopefully looking like Kate hasn't taken any attention away from her accomplishment in the sport. 

Kate has a couple of look-alike doubles who make a living at playing Kate for different events, there's a Prince William double who also goes along on these gigs.

Kate's professional impersonator looks somewhat like her once she has the makeup and hair in place, but Pauline looks much more like Kate than that impersonator who makes a living out of being the Duchess of Cambridge!
