Fresh from his public breakup with Cressida Bonas, Prince Harry is making a lot of buzz from attending his friend's wedding in Memphis to a TV series that features his look-like-alike who is posing as him to find true love.
FOX's newest dating show "I Wanna Marry Harry" has found a look alike of Prince Harry of Wales in Matthew Hicks. Scheduled to premiere on May 27, 12 American girls are willing to go a distance just to have a chance to marry one of the world's most eligible bachelors.
Just before the premiere of the reality show, "I Wanna Marry Harry" star Matthew Hicks was spotted visiting Graceland in Memphis just in time when the real Prince Harry is in town for his pal's wedding. The "fake" prince was ogled by screaming fans and excited crowd who through they were snapping photos of Harry, not knowing that it was all part of FOX's upcoming reality TV show.
"One girl was near tears and shaking as she took a photo with him," a witness tell PEOPLE when Matthew Hicks visited the Elvis Presley estate. "One woman swerved across traffic to hop out and get a photo."
"It turned into a frenzy! Within seconds, I couldn't move, couldn't walk down the street," says Hicks after he mobbed by hundreds of people. "It was quite scary. I'm thankful I'm not the real guy."
Hicks will reveal his real identity at the end of the show and it will be interesting to know who among the girls will fall in love with the real Matthew and not the prince.
