Meghan Markle has inspired thousands of women around the world with her passion, kindness and fashion sense — and, for one Houston-based woman, with her face!
Xochytl Greer, who works as an attorney in Houston, Texas, recently spent $30,000 on plastic surgery to look just like the Duchess of Sussex. Cameras from ABC’s Nightlinefollowed Greer into the operating room last November; now, she’s sitting down with ET to chat all about her results, and reveal how looking like the duchess has changed her life.
Greer, a mother of three, first became a fan of Markle after seeing her on Suits. “I really liked her character, Rachel Zane. I thought that she was a strong woman… She came off very wholesome, very conservative,” she says, explaining that her love for the actress only intensified after she started dating Prince Harry.
She’s like our very own American princess, right? So I love that,” Greer expresses. “I love that she gets to portray America and kind of represent America into this royalty now! I enjoyed it because it thrust her into the spotlight even more.”
Markle is “relatable” to Greer, who, in between praising the royal for “keeping it classy,” reveals that she’s found several similarities between them (beyond their looks). Like Markle, Greer has been previously married and divorced. She identifies with Markle’s biracial background (the duchess is half-white and half-black, while Greer is half-Mexican, half-white), and admits to having her own “family issues.” To top it off, Greer loves the fact that both she and Markle have experience in law — or at least Markle’s Suits character did.
“I’m an attorney… I find that very relatable and commonality with Meghan. And I know she’s not an attorney, she’s an actress, and now the Duchess of Sussex. So, it’s not really her, individually, but it’s a character that she plays,” Greer reasons. “But it’s something that I can draw more commonality to and feel closer to her about.”
