LONDON, Jan. 29 (UPI) -- A 21-year-old man who serves as an impersonator of Prince Harry says he has gone into hiding due to all of the female attention the British royal draws.

Elliott Gibson said while he is used to some female attention due to his physical similarities to Prince Harry, he has been overwhelmed with lovelorn girls since the prince's publicized split from his girlfriend, Chelsy Davy, The Daily Telegraph reported Thursday.

"People have been staring at me my entire life because of how much I look like Harry -- and, as embarrassing as it is, a lot of girls come up to me to get a picture," Gibson said.

"But the past few days have been like nothing I've ever experienced."

The prince and Davy ended their 5-year-relationship this month.

Gibson said during a recent London visit he was mistaken for Harry once again, but this time he barely escaped being chased by 50 U.S. teenagers.

"I seriously thought I might be injured. I couldn't even begin to think what they'd do to me if they caught me," he told the Telegraph of the Sunday incident.
