(SOUNDBITE) (English) MALLORY BOWLING, D.C.-AREA ATTORNEY WHO RUNS #LADY.M.REPLIKATES INSTAGRAM SITE FOLLOWING KATE MIDDLETON'S FASHIONS, SAYING: 'Hi.

Come on in.'

Meet Mallory Johnson Bowling.

She's 31, American, an attorney, and a superfan of Britain's Kate Middleton.

She even has the royal wardrobe to match.

Mallory runs a 16,000 follower-strong Instagram account called Lady.M.Replikates.

She's posted hundreds of pictures of herself wearing the Duchess of Cambridge's outfits.

A hobby that started after Kate was engaged to Prince William -- second-in-line to the British throne.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MALLORY BOWLING, D.C.-AREA ATTORNEY WHO RUNS #LADY.M.REPLIKATES INSTAGRAM SITE FOLLOWING KATE MIDDLETON'S FASHIONS, SAYING: "So it just became something really fun and a nice hobby on the side to kind of track and see what she was wearing and see if it was something that would kind of fit into my everyday wardrobe and if it did then I would try and add it to my collection." Mallory likes to wear her hair like Kate's.

And tracks the outfits she wears to public events.

When she spots a look she likes, she scours the internet to source the piece -- within a budget.

And dabbles with Meghan Markle and Kate's sister, Pippa, too.

She even has an app to make sure she doesn't double up.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MALLORY BOWLING, D.C.-AREA ATTORNEY WHO RUNS #LADY.M.REPLIKATES INSTAGRAM SITE FOLLOWING KATE MIDDLETON'S FASHIONS, SAYING: "I think if I had a perfect day in a Kate outfit with Kate, I think it would be probably in something very casual, probably jeans and maybe like a jacket of some sort, and maybe we'd go out on a walk in the country, or do some charity work with some of the great experiences that she's had recently.

Maybe with the kids, that would be kind of fun, to hang out with George and Charlotte and Louis, but it would definitely be much more of a less formal occasion than perhaps a state dinner, though the tiara would be fun." Today, Mallory has over 250 items that replicate Kate's wardrobe.

And lives a royalty-inspired life.

BOWLING PULLING OFF CARD FROM WALL AND SHOWING IT SAYING: 'So Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank got married last year and I sent them a card for congratulations, and they sent me a very nice card in response.'

Her dog is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Winston -- after Winston Churchill.

And even says her husband is distantly related to Queen Elizabeth's mother.
