Is Meghan Markle morphing into Kim Kardashian with a TV series, the same pals and family scandals?

ONE is the wife of a prince, while the other is showbiz royalty – but Meghan Markle and Kim Kardashian have a lot more in common than that.

From identical outfits to viral Christmas cards and scandal-filled families, Meghan and Kim have been morphing into each other for years.

Now Meghan and hubby Prince Harry have agreed to be filmed for a fly-on-the-wall documentary series to give a “glimpse of their lives”, as part of their £112million Netflix deal.

It has strong echoes of 39-year-old Kim’s own show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which sees the family air their dirty laundry in front of viewers.

Even Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan has dubbed Meghan — who is also 39 — “the new Kim Kardashian” . . .  and he may just have a point, as we show here.

Style Queens

While Kim loves to flaunt her curves on Instagram, in the rare instances she does keep her clothes on her wardrobe could easily pass for Meghan’s.

Both women wore Givenchy wedding dresses, Kim’s a slimline lace number and Meghan’s an off-the-shoulder gown.

But the fashionable pair have actually modelled the exact same dress before, though in different colours.

Kim wore the Jackie O dress by LA-based label Black Halo in white in 2007, before Meghan wore it in black at a 2018 reception at the Royal Aeronautical Society in London.

And the pair were pictured in eerily similar styles during their pregnancies, favouring long coats in matching colours, figure-hugging dresses and floor-length floral gowns.

High-placed friends

The Duchess of Sussex met long-term pal Serena Williams at a 2010 Super Bowl party and hit it off immediately, chatting about “good old-fashioned girly stuff”.

And Kim is just as tight with the tennis ace.

Last year they threw a Met Gala after-party in New York, where they served up McDonald’s food for punters.

Meghan also goes way back with Kim’s good pal Chrissy Teigen after they met on the US version of Deal Or No Deal, and she is also good friends with actress Priyanka Chopra, who has mixed with Kim too.

Just beachy

She’s got the most famous bum in the world, and Kim turned even more heads when she was snapped bizarrely having sand dabbed all over it for a photoshoot in 2014.

And she’s not alone.

Meghan’s saucy Insta snaps disappeared the moment she met her Prince Charming, but she too once loved to show off her amazing figure to her army of fans.

One 2015 post saw her practising yoga in a skimpy bikini on the beach — with sand covering her bum.

Hairs and graces

How do you get that Kim/Meg Hollywood glow? By using the same hair and workout gurus, of course.

The pair have both worked with hairdresser Michael Silva.

He styled the Duchess during her time in US TV drama Suits and was also behind Kim’s sleek Met Gala look in 2017.

Meanwhile, Meghan swears by the fitness videos of personal trainer Tracy Anderson — who Kim worked with while she was pregnant in 2013.

Family scandals

Meghan’s family have been in the spotlight since she began dating Harry and, just like Kim, she has had to deal with a fair few scandals.

Her father Thomas has given a series of damning interviews about her, claiming she has shunned him — while also staging paparazzi photos of himself.

The Kardashian family have allowed every aspect of their lives to play out for the world to see, from divorces to cheating exes, with each being covered by their reality TV show.

Despite that, Kim insists she sympathises with the Sussexes’ pleas for privacy.

In a television interview, she said: “I can definitely empathise with their need for having a secure, safe place.”

Husbands' torment

Both Meghan and Kim have seen their profile rocket overnight after tying the knot with their super- famous husbands.

And they’ve been there for them through thick and thin.

Kanye has been open about his battles with his mental health and recently sparked concern with a series of shocking outbursts, even claiming Kim had considered aborting their daughter North.

Harry has made no secret of his difficulties dealing with life in the spotlight, admitting he “shut down all his emotions” for two decades following the death of his mother Princess Diana.

The Xmas kard

It’s not Christmas until the annual Kardashian family portrait takes over our social media feeds — but last year they had stiff competition from the Sussexes.

Meghan and Harry shared a beaming snap in front of a Christmas tree, with baby Archie taking centre stage.

Even so, they have a way to go to keep up with the Kardashians, whose flamboyant cards have seen them pose in tartan ties and Kylie balance on a ladder in a red tutu.

They ramped it up in 2013, with the family standing under neon lights, surrounded by gossip mags and huge dollar signs.

Over to you, Harry!

The hump… with Trump

Meghan and Harry sparked fury recently by ignoring tradition and advising Americans to vote, with Harry making an apparent swipe at Donald Trump by urging people to “reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity”.

The President hit back, saying he was not a Meghan fan.

Of course, the Duchess isn’t the only one to have got the hump with Trump.

In 2018 Kim visited the Oval Office campaigning for the release of Alice Marie Johnson, who had spent more than 20 years in jail for a first-time drug offence.

After hearing from Kim, Trump pardoned Johnson’s offences.

Shocking web leaks

The internet can be a cruel playground for celeb trolls — as these two well know.

Kim famously saw a sex tape she made with her ex Ray J leaked in 2007.               

In 2016, photos that were claimed to show Meghan topless were leaked.

They were later confirmed to be fake.

However, she and Harry then saw some of their private wedding photos leaked when their photographer’s computer was hacked.

Child's play

It’s the latest celeb trend — keep the world waiting for that adorable first glimpse of your baby.

Meghan and Kim played it to perfection, teasing fans with shots of their babies’ tiny feet or hands before we even saw their faces.

While Kim’s first photo of her son Saint West showed just his hand clutching his big sister North’s finger, Meghan and Harry released a photo of Archie’s feet on International Mother’s Day, before posting another of his tiny hand holding Harry’s on Father’s Day.
