A mysterious old guest at King Charles III’s coronation denies he’s Meghan Markle in disguise

To borrow an iconic line from the U.S. sitcom The Office, “Imitation is not a joke, Jim! Millions of families suffer every year!”

But, no, no family has suffered. And nothing was imitated here.

A mysterious old man that looks like Meghan Markle attended the coronation of King Charles III. That’s odd because reports before May 6 said that the Duchess of Sussex wouldn’t be attending the ceremony along with her husband, Prince Harry.

The man that looks like the Suits star up close has a shaggy gray mullet, a wild moustache, and large glasses. At first glance, we won’t notice any resemblance with the Duchess of Sussex. However, people on social media have jokingly suspected that this just could be her.


For everyone who’s suspecting that this could be Meghan in disguise, you’ve got it all wrong. The man with the grey mullet, moustache, and glasses is none other than Sir Karl Jenkins.

The Welsh composer was at the ceremony because he was invited to play one of his songs. After the coronation, he made it clear that he wasn’t Meghan in disguise.

“I understand there’s been a lot of interest in me since I appeared at the coronation,” he said in a TikTok video.

“I was quite surprised that some people thought I was Meghan Markle in disguise,” he added.

He also revealed in the video that he was somehow there at the coronation to sabotage it and ‘steal the crown jewels’.

So I’m glad that everything is clear. No family will suffer now, Dwight! It’s all good.
