Prince William Embraces His Bald Side with Shaven Look

Posted by Jeanne on January 18, 2018

While Prince Harry and fiancé Meghan Markle may be making international headlines anytime they step out together lately, future king Prince William is proving that he can still turn heads in ways other than announcing royal pregnancies!

According to BBC News, ahead of his royal visit to the Evelina London Children’s Hospital in Lambeth, the royal (and perhaps most famous balding man in the world) decided to embrace his follicular challenges by sporting a military-style buzz cut before meeting with armed forces vets working at the NHS-run children’s hospital.

No stranger to a tease or two from family members because of his thinning mane, William seems to have decided against the suggestion from the Duchess of Cambridge during a 2014 visit to the Sydney Royal Easter Show that he don a patch of alpaca wool that matched his hair color to disguise his balding scalp.

Despite jokes by his younger brother Prince Harry that William was “already bald aged 12,” sporting the shortened coif has been called a “really strong statement, a very confident statement” by celebrity hair stylist Joe Mills of joeandco.net when speaking to British publication The Independent about the new look.

Will the daring move by Prince William inspire other similarly balding men to take the plunge and go with a shortened trim?  Only time will tell, but I doubt we have to worry about Prince Harry following in his footsteps anytime soon.
