Merlin Events and Sternberg Clarke have come together to launch ‘The Kate Factor’ contest in their quest for the best undiscoveredlook-alike for corporate events and private parties all over United Kingdom.
In recent times the reputation of the royal family members is at its peak what with the ongoing Queen’s Jubilee celebrations, last year’s Royal Wedding and many other public functions taking place in London in this year.
Among the royal family members, Prince William’s wife Kate Middleton’s popularity has touched dizzying heights with Catherine even being dubbed as UK’s sweetheart. Unfortunately, for most Britons, ‘Being a Part of the Royal Family’ isn’t something they will ever get a chance to experience, unless of course, they get an introduction from a royal insider.
However, now thanks to Sternberg Clarke and Merlin Events London the dream of several Britons will become a reality. ‘The Kate Factor’ events will be held at iconic London venues such as Madame Tussauds, the London Dungeon and the SEA LIFE London Aquarium. The lucky winner of this contest will get a chance to experience the next best thing – an opportunity to be a Kate Middleton lookalike.
The GM of Merlin Events London, Michael Aldridge said “2012 is the year for the UK with Olympic and Paralympic Games coupled with the Diamond Jubilee celebrations. More requests are coming through for organizers wishing to add a quintessentially British twist to their events with an appearance from The Duchess of Cambridge. We decided it was the perfect time to find the next Kate Middleton lookalike and have launched ‘The Kate Factor’.”
The hunt for the next Kate Middleton lookalike a ‘Kate Klone’ or Mock Middleton is already on. The organizers urge all those who consider themselves having the 'The Kate Factor' to upload their photos to the Merlin Events Facebook page by 3rd August 2012. Those selected will have their pictures saved in a specially created album.
The winning Kate will be featured in Sternberg Clarke’s Act Directory. The lucky lassie will be getting a personal profile page on the team’s website. The organizers promise the winner of the contest will be swept away to the first of several Royal Engagements in London with Merlin Events.
The winner of Kate lookalike will have her first photo opportunity at ‘Pimms with Kate’ drinks reception; where she’ll entertain competition winners in their office. Side-by-side a Merlin waiter will be serving glasses of Pimms. For more information on the competition, keep an eye on Twitter @MerlinEvents and Facebook .
