Americans mistake Prince Harry for country singer and TV newsman when shown his picture – and one calls him Harris

PRINCE Harry was mistaken for a country singer, a TV newsman and a basketball player in a quiz by confused Americans.

Dozens of people in small communities across the US were shown a recent photo of the Duke of Sussex and asked who he was, leaving some scratching their heads.

One of the people thought he could be one of the Trump family members, while another was convinced he was an actor.

The poll, created by the Mail on Sunday, discovered that the town of Taft, which has a community of around 10,000 had no idea who he was.

Just 100 miles north of the Prince's new home in Montecito, Annalise Wills, 23, boldly asked: "Who is that?"

George Peabody, a former teacher thought he saw him on a 'Wanted' poster at the post office.

"Or is he one of Donald Trump's kids?" he asked.

Victoria Pirpour, 29, thought the royal was a basketball player, but she said she wasn't sure what team he was on.

For some it was a silly question, Glenda Bonds, 56 declared confidently that he was an actor.

After studying the picture, Phillip Johnson, 82 said: "He looks familiar – is he a TV anchor? I watch Fox News all the time, I think he's one of them."

Paige Gammell, 21, was slightly closer to the mark and asked if he was the King. She asked if it was "Prince Charles" or "Henry".

Pastor Doug Huff, 53, said: "Did he create a lot of controversy because of his stance on Covid? Is he married to royalty?"

He looks familiar – is he a TV anchor?

Town ambassador Anderson Pacouloute, 36, got the title correct, but lost points on Harry's name: "Right, that's Prince Harris.

In Princetown, a small town in northern Texas, many had no idea who Prince Harry was.

Some could work out he was royalty, but couldn't name him – whereas some knew instantly who he was.

Sheryl Hamilton, 65, was dropping off bundles of washing at a laundrette after she had no hot water in her home due to a recent storm.

Prince Harry and Meghan had reportedly donated to a Texas women's shelter that had been badly hit by the storm.

Sheryl instantly knew who the man was in the picture and named him instantly.

She did however say the pair were a "little too liberal" for her liking and said she hoped they wouldn't visit Texas any time soon.

Prince Harry was recently intereviewed by James Corden as part of The Late Late Show, where he insisted that he and Meghan "never walked away" from the royals.

He insisted that he did "what any husband or father would do."

The chat on an open air bus was filmed before the pair were stripped of their honorary titles, Harry insisted his life will "always be about public service" – and says his wife "signed up for that" too.

The 36-year-old added that it was a "really difficult environment" and said of the press: "It's destroying my mental health".

The duke also spoke about his early relationship with Meghan, 39 – admitting he knew she was "the one" after just two dates.

"It was an amazing thing. We went from zero to 60 in the first two months," he told Corden.
