Kate Middleton and Prince William, is that you? Alas, just some spot-on lookalikes
With royal wedding activity coming to a head, Prince William and Kate Middleton could no doubt use some body doubles right now -- especially a couple of lookalikes who've done the royal-wedding thing already.
Simon Watkinson, 29, and Jodie Bredo, 22, were "married" on April Fool's Day, under the watchful eye of artist and photographer Alison Jackson. The pair were joined by 20-year veteran lookalike Mary Wills as Queen Elizabeth II, plus footmen and of course Corgis.
The "wedding" was staged to promote Jackson's newest book, "Kate and Wills Up the Aisle: A Right Royal Fairy Tale," which chronicles a risque version of how it might have been for the couple from when they met through when they married, Jackson told the Daily Mirror.
Bredo said she quit her job at the end of last year to do the lookalike rounds, while Watkinson is juggling his "royal" duties around a civil engineering career.

And Kate and Wills, if you're tempted to engineer a little help while things are so hectic? Just remember what happened to Michael Keaton's "Multiplicity" character when someone made a copy of a copy: Things went royally wrong.
