Meet the beautiful little girl who is the spitting image of Princess Charlotte – and gets stopped by strangers wherever she goes.
Adorable Scarlett Evered was signed up by a lookalike agency when she was just 15 months old after her grandmother noticed she bears a striking resemblance to the fourth in line to the throne.
And the three-year-old even confuses herself with the royal princess when she sees her on television.
The tot has starred in a supermarket campaign, modeled dressing gowns and even got to open up a winter wonderland with other royal lookalikes.
Her mum Victoria Evered, 38, said the pair constantly get stopped by strangers commenting on how much her tot looks like the three-year-old royal.
Victoria, of Orpington, Kent, said: “When Princess
Charlotte turned one there was an OK magazine feature with lots of pictures and my mum said Scarlett looked just like her.
“Mum said ‘why don’t you see if she could be a lookalike’. I sent Scarlett’s picture to a lookalike agency and she was working that weekend.
“Her first job was for a viral video campaign for Asda when she was 15 months old to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday.
“It was amazing. There were lookalikes for Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge. She loved every minute of it.
“They were filming so the director was keeping them separate but people were walking past and doing a double take. It was hilarious.
“It had millions of views on their social media platforms. It was so surreal.
“I thought that would be it and it would be a one-off but then that summer she was asked to do another one.”
The mum-of-three, who also has sons Harrison Evered, 10, and Nathan Evered, seven, with her finance consultant husband Andrew Evered, 40, said ‘diva’ Scarlett loves the attention.
Victoria said: “There was an open day at my son’s school and his teacher came up and said ‘do you know who she’s the exact double of?’
“People comment on it all the time. You’ll be in the supermarket and people come up and say she looks just like her.
“Quite often I’ll see people smiling at me and I know what they’re going to say. I’ve not had anyone think I’ve actually stolen the princess though – thank God.
“It happens especially if her hair is down because the parting falls in a similar way to Princess Charlotte’s.
“Scarlett’s taken to saying ‘I’m not Princess Charlotte, I’m Scarlett’. And as she gets older she’s becoming much more aware of it.
“When we’re out and about and people say it she laughs and smiles. She does love the attention.”
Scarlett who is now signed with three agencies Scarlett Entertainment, Susan Scott and Lookalikes did three viral videos for Asda in 2016.
The toddler also appeared in a video for Pizza Express to mark Prince George’s third birthday.
Stay-at-home mum Victoria also entered her into a Netvouchercodes competition to find the best lookalike which she won in April 2017.
Scarlett was then asked to open up a Christmas fairground at a Dreamland in Margate event last year with Prince William lookalike Simon Watkinson and Duchess of Cambridge lookalike Heidi Agan.
Victoria said: “It was lovely for her. She got to walk around the park and meet Father Christmas and got to go ice skating before everybody else arrived.
“They took pictures of her with the other lookalikes on the ice rink then people were coming over to speak to her.
“She loved it. She’s a very sociable, friendly, outgoing little girl and it comes very naturally to her.
“This year to mark the birth of the royal baby she did a campaign for My 1st Years’ Royal Collection. That was her first modeling campaign and she really took to it.
“They were in their dressing gowns being babysat by a Meghan Markle lookalike which got a lot of coverage in magazines and papers.
“It was because Prince George wore one of those dressing gowns when he met President Obama.
“She was brilliant. She knows Hayden (Ursell) who plays Prince George really well and the other lookalikes are always really professional.
“It doesn’t seem like she’s doing any work. She’s just having fun.”
Spending time around so many royal doppelgangers – and being one – does sometimes leave Scarlett confused.
And the little girl has been known to think she’s watching herself on TV when she’s actually watching the princess.
Victoria said: “I always show her Princess Charlotte on the television and a couple of times she’s thought it’s actually her.
“When the royal baby was born she thought she was watching Simon who is the Prince William lookalike.
“Scarlett has got lighter hair and a different eye colour. She’s not exactly the same but they definitely have some sort of resemblance.
“Scarlett does like Princess Charlotte. She always looks at her dresses and what she’s wearing. I think she’d be happy to copy her clothes.
“I’ll be over the moon if she can continue to do it. We have a lovely memory book of all her press cuttings so that she can see it when she’s older.
“We love the royal family. I think they do us proud as a country so it’s really nice to have this memorabilia.
“I would love her to meet Princess Charlotte one day – that would be amazing.”
Scarlett’s endeavours bring added joy to her whole family, according to her mum who says the tot’s brothers are ‘so proud’ of their sister.
And while the little girl will always be the princess of the Evered family, Victoria says the moment Scarlett stops enjoying being a lookalike, she will be able to give it up.
Victoria said: “Her brothers love it. They think it’s hilarious. Every time she’s in the paper or part of a campaign they take it in to show their classmates at school.
“They’re so proud of her – especially when she won the competition.
“She is a bit of a diva and I think that comes with having older brothers – they do love to spoil her. She’s the princess in our family.
“When we get a booking it’s fantastic but it’s not something she does all the time. It comes a bit out of the blue and it’s always a lovely surprise when we’re asked.
“She enjoys it and if she stops enjoying it we won’t do it anymore. As long as Scarlett’s having fun that’s the most important thing.”
