CCTV footage of wanted man has had social media awash with comments likening the person to a Prince Harry lookalike.

Hertfordshire Constabulary released an image of a man they are looking for after a MacBook, Apple headphones, Louis Vuitton bag and hard drive were stolen in North Watford.

But since the image was released on April 14, the humorous comparisons have taken off with eagle eyed social media users commenting on the appeal.

One person commented on the Watford Observer Facebook post: “The one on the left looks like Prince Harry.”

On the Observer’s story, another person said: “I do recognise the bloke... I think he's over for a coronation or something. Left the missus at home.”

The police’s Facebook post also got similar responses.

One person said: “It’s Harry! He will be arriving at the airport in a few weeks.”  

Others were questioning if the prince’s move across the pond has proved more expensive than expected.

One person said: “Is that Harry? Times really are hard,” and another said: “looks like Harry is he skint”.

Another person joked: “False alarm guys I spoke to him. Apparently, he was looking for his wife Meghan Markle.”

After the comparisons were raised by several people, one person called on the police to investigate.

They said: “I can't unsee Prince Harry now. I think Herts Police need to check his location.”

But it wasn’t only Prince Harry who the wanted man was being likened too.

Some people thought he looked like Garry Windass from Coronation Street, Ron Weasley from Harry Potter and Tyson Fury.  

The alleged theft took place in Topgolf in Bushey Mill Lane, North Watford, between 8.30pm and 11.15pm on Friday, March 10.

The rear window of a white Land Rover was smashed before the items were stolen from the car.

When police first launched the appeal, PC Michael Norris said: “We would like to identify the man in the image as it is believed he was in the area at the time and may have information which could assist our investigation.

“If this is you, or you recognise him, please contact me directly at”

Information can also be reported via non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference 41/20200/23.
