A Kate Middleton look-a-like was over run by fans as she read the Gazette in a photo shoot for Prince George’s birthday.

The counterfeit Duchess of Cambridge had been visiting shops at the N1 Centre, in Parkfield Street, Islington, on Friday as part of a promotion for the baby prince’s 1st birthday, which is today.

A spokesman for the centre’s media team said: “Because it was such a hot day, everyone was out on the lawn and she ended up getting mobbed by people wanting selfies.

“People were really loving her.

“In the end we had to cut the shoot short and whisk her off.”
