Prince Harry had to do a double take after spotting an Australian Meghan Markle lookalike on Bondi Beach during their royal tour.

Prince Harry, 35, and Meghan Markle, 37, were both taken aback by an Australian woman the spitting image of the former Suits star.

22-year-old Danielle Bazergy clearly caught the attention of the royal couple, who made a beeline for her as she stood in the crowds on Bondi Beach.

The personal trainer shared the experience to her Instagram page in a series of highlights, titled 'MARKLE 2.0'.

Danielle told Daily Mail Australia: "It was incredibly humbling. Not going to lie, [it was] very exhilarating when Harry did a double take on me - I was actually the first in the crowd that they came and started chatting to."

Explaining how she deflects the attention, Danielle admitted: "I always try to make a joke about it when people say I look like Prince Harry's wife. My go-to line is usually to laugh at my single self and say that I'm still looking for my prince."

Meghan and Harry are currently embarking on a whirlwind royal tour Australia, Fiji and Tonga, and have just returned to Sydney for the Australian Geographic Society Awards.
