Eagle-eyed viewers were freaked out after thinking they saw the Duke and Duchess of Sussex Harry and Meghan in a new Christmas commercial for Kay Jewelers.
Many have pointed out that a new Christmas commercial for Kay’s Love Entwined’s $299 necklace features the couple sporting an adorable look for the royal family.
In the TV commercial the pair are seen kissing and embracing as a Harry look-alike places the necklace around his lover, while the narrator touts the jewelry.
“An interlocking design that embraces a signature diamond, representing your hearts, souls, and lives forever intertwined with love,” the voiceover reads.
While it’s clear upon closer inspection that the actors aren’t members of the royal family, the camera angles, fades, and low lighting left many people wondering about the ad.
A Twitter user who goes by the name Molly J. echoed the confusion on social media, writing: “Is it just me or did Kay Jewelers do the ad on purpose so you’d think, just for a split second, that Harry and Meghan were in a jewelry commercial?” ‘

The ad uses a lot of changing camera angles, fade effects, and low-light tricks that throw the actors out of focus, which many claim is intended to make viewers believe Harry and Meghan are actually doing a commercial for Kay.
Many on social media were quick to share videos of the announcement, which has been running since the end of November, in which they were confused about the identity of the couple.
A Twitter user holding the handle asked Miss Lady what many were wondering: “Is that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in the Kay jewelry ad or am I just seeing things??” lol.’
Another Twitter user, Melissa Carter, suggested that the doppelgangers were chosen on purpose.
You can’t tell me KeyJewelers didn’t do this [on] purpose,” she wrote.
Another Twitter user who went by the name Victoria wrote allegations that the company had intentionally hired people who liked to pose as members of the royal family.
Victoria wrote: ‘I just saw a commercial for Kay’s jewelers I swear to God featured cast specially chosen to evoke Harry and Meghan’s feelings, like the guy was a bearded ginger and the girl had Meghan’s skin tone and long dark hair. “I’m dying to know how this brainstorming session went.”
Kay Jewelers and its parent company, Signet Jewelers, did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com’s request for comment.
Many went on social media to refer to the doppelgangers in the commercial
While the doppelgangers appeared to be deceiving many, keen eyes would have noticed that the ring Meghan is wearing does not match the $170,000 engagement ring Harry gave his wife.
The real gold band features one diamond originally from Botswana and two smaller stones from Princess Diana’s collection.
Harry previously told reporters that the ring was yellow gold because this [Meghan’s] Preferred.’
Besides the engagement ring, Meghan wears her wedding band, which is made of yellow gold and matches Prince Harry’s.
Arabelle LeBrosan, owner of the ethical jewelry label that bears his name, said the ring was redesigned to make the main diamond “look bigger,” which is a common trend to emphasize the main gem.
Sharp eyes noticed the differences between the actor’s ring (left) and the original $170,000 engagement ring worn by the Duchess of Sussex.
The confusion over the Kay Jewelers commercial comes while all eyes are on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex over the controversial Netflix documentary.
