MEGHAN COPIES THE KAREN MATTHEWS LOOK! Royal babe rocks in kid­nap mum’s trendy out­fit


Sunday Sport - - NEWS -

TO her mil­lions of fans around the world, Prince Harry’s gor­geous wife Meghan Markle is a style icon and the very essence of class.

Top fash­ion de­sign­ers beg her to wear their dresses, and when she does, her ador­ing pub­lic try to em­u­late her look with High Street im­i­ta­tions.

But Meghan’s fol­low­ers will be stunned to­day when they see their idol pic­tured next to one of Bri­tain’s most re­viled women.

For the Duchess of Sus­sex, 37, seems to have BLA­TANTLY COPIED an out­fit worn by newly- glam­orous kid­nap mum Karen Matthews!

Last month, mum- of- seven Matthews, 43, was snapped leav­ing a Mother­care store and looked a mil­lion miles from the lank- haired, slovenly oaf she was a decade ago when she hit head­lines for stag­ing her nine- year- old daugh­ter Shan­non’s ab­duc­tion in a bid to blag a £ 50,000 cash re­ward.

Sport­ing a sa­lon- fresh hair­style, an on- trend checked shirt and a mega- fash­ion­able Su­perdry bag, she looked like a Premier League WAG. In other words she looked GOR­GEOUS.

Then, just days later, Royal beauty Meghan ap­peared at a Wind­sor char­ity event in an al­most IDEN­TI­CAL en­sem­ble.

Fash­ion v- blog­ger Luke Llay was stunned when we showed him the pics.

He ex­claimed: “What WAS Meghan think­ing?

“OMG! One of the most watched women in the world match­ing her look with a low- life loser! I know that Karen has had an amaz­ing makeover but RE­ALLY. “Words fail me! Ouch!” A source close to the Duchess told Sun­day Sport: “Meghan had not seen those pho­tos of Miss Matthews and the match­ing out­fits are a very un­for­tu­nate co­in­ci­dence.”

Matthews was jailed for eight years in 2008 af­ter be­ing found guilty of kid­nap, false im­pris­on­ment and per­vert­ing the course of jus­tice with pal Michael Dono­van.

Tragic Shan­non – who turned 20 three weeks ago – van­ished in Dews­bury Moor, West York­shire, prompt­ing a month- long po­lice search.

Karen Matthews and her boyfriend at the time, Craig Mee­han, now 32, made sev­eral pub­lic ap­peals for help to find the school­girl and be­came in­fa­mous around the globe.

Shan­non was found un­der a bed in Dono­van’s seedy flat in nearby Bat­ley Carr.
