Seeing double? That's what some observers of the Miss Wales competition are claiming when they gaze upon Sophie Moulds, the 19-year-old new Miss Wales who bears more than a striking resemblance to the Duchess of Cambridge
Same rich brown hair color, same 5'10" height, same look in the eyes – and she even has the similar "gentle confidence about her. She's not the loudest girl in the room, but she's very down to earth and she’s very, very approachable," according to Miss Wales contest organizer Paula Abbandonato.
With her own new crown, Moulds, a Cardiff University business studies student, now gets to fly the flag for her home country in the international contest in Inner Mongolia.
As she told her local paper, the Western Mail
, "I have got exams coming up in two weeks, but I like having lots of things on. Being a woman I obviously feel I'm good at multi-tasking."
