Rio 2016: Duchess of Cambridge at Olympics?

The duchess has been confused with a woman 10 years her junior: Pauline Ferrand-Prévot from the French cycling team, who does vaguely resemble Kate. (Getty Images)

Their teeth, eyebrows, and bone structure are remarkably similar, but Pauline’s hair is blond, while Kate, as we all know, is a brunette. (Getty Images)

Her doppelganger claim to fame aside, Pauline deserves a shout-out for her achievements in the sporting world.

She’s the first woman in the history of cycling to hold the world road, world cyclo-cross, and world mountain bike titles at the same time.
