Kate Middletons sister Pippa mistaken for Meghan Markle in Coronation mix-up

Some viewers watching the ongoing Coronation of King Charles have mistaken Kate Middleton's sister Pippa for Meghan Markle.

The former actress has not made a last-minute dash over the Atlantic, however, and is still at home with her son Prince Archie, who turns four today.

Pippa, whose behind stole the show in 2011 as her older sister married Prince William, was decked out in an all-yellow ensemble, with her face partially obscured by a large hat.

This, perhaps, led some social media commentators to confuse her with the Stateside Duchess, with one writing: "Did you see the Meghan Markle lookalike that looked like a daffodil?"

Other commentators fondly recounted Pippa's 2011 bum moment, while some celebrated her bright outfit.

One bloke put it bluntly, saying: "I don't dislike the royals, but I don't really give a s**t either. Only thing even semi Royal that I've paid any attention to in the past few decades was Pippa Middleton's butt."

'Davy Boy' added "Pippa Middleton still looking bangin," while others simply admired her outfit.

Previously speaking about the reaction to her dress, Pippa said: "It's a bit startling to achieve global recognition before the age of 30, on account of your sister, brother in law and your bottom."

In the hours after Kate and William's wedding, a Twitter account dedicated solely to Pippa's bum was set up.
