It was quite a confusing moment for viewers watching the finale of Britain's Got Talent when they apparently saw two people who looked like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle among the audience members.

The shocked viewers were quite convinced for a split second that the couple sitting in the stands was indeed the royal newly-weds, and were forced to rewind their screens to get a closer look at the royal lookalikes.

However, they were pleasantly surprised to find out that the people in the audience were none other than the new ‘Live Figures’ from Madame Tussauds London, which appropriately bear an uncanny resemblance to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Speaking to his "guests," Dec Donnelly said: "Good evening your highnesses, we hope you’re loving the show."

Although the royal members could not be there to grace the talent show finale with their humbling presence, the show did get some royal family connection in the form of Bishop Michael Curry, who went out of his way to bless the show. 

As most people who followed the royal wedding on May 19 through and through on their television screens, the Bishop was also present for Meghan and Harry's nuptials last month and had come all the way from Chicago, especially to deliver a passionate address at the royal wedding.

In a pre-recorded video, he said, "Hello, Britain's Got Talent. It is a joy to bring you these greetings to all of the contestants, to the judges, to the audience, to all who make this possible. Thank you. Thank you for what you're doing. Thank you to the contestants who offer yourselves, share your talent and share your gifts with the rest of us."

He later added, "You actually help to bring some joy and happiness, so thank you, God bless you, God keep you, and may God hold us all in the almighty hands of love."

The news of Meghan and Prince Harry's lookalikes appearing on TV comes after it was recently reported that Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, is not pleased with the behavior meted out to her by the royal family ever since her only daughter got married.

According to reports, Doria has been placed under strict orders from “The Firm” to not speak at all about her only daughter, Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex. The order demanded Ragland to sign a legal document which dissuades her from speaking about anything related to the new royal and her ongoing life.

“Doria can’t eat, speak or otherwise open her mouth about Meghan unless she clears it with the Royal family,” a source close to the new Duchess of Sussex explained to the publication.

“They’ve silenced her and made her sign a non-disclosure agreement.”

A lot of Ragland's friends back home in LA, who watched the royal wedding unfold on their television screens, tried quite hard to pry even the minutest of details out from the royal's mother, but to no avail.

“Her friends are asking how the wedding was, how the food was, asking how happy Meghan is and all Doria did was shrug her shoulders. She didn’t say a word. It’s so sad. The poor lady looks and feels miserable.”
