Sometimes it happens. It could be a problem from either end. Nothing to worry about and there's nothing you can do really. Just restart your phone to refresh it, that could help.

And considering you received the message, not sent duplicate ones, the issue is probably your friend and not you.

It's normal that it does that. Considering you're sometimes on wifi and sometimes not, the other's person phone tries sending the message as an iMessage but, when it sees that you're not on wifi, it tries to send as an SMS. Therefore, this constant on/off wifi will result in people sending you iMessage and SMS in the same time. Sometimes you will receive the iMessage and the SMS sometime after. This is why you have duplicates

It's not a big deal. You could close iMessage so it doesn't happen anymore.
