Old before his time?
The National Enquirer, a US publication, reported a source close to the couple as saying “Kate thinks he looks old before his time. She says that William either needs to get a hair transplant or shave his head completely, so that he looks younger and more dynamic.”
The Duke of Cambridge has been experiencing thinning hair on top for many years now – a classic tell-tale sign of Male Pattern Baldness. Shortly after the birth of his son George, the prince joked about the newborn’s hair, saying: “He’s already got way more than me, thank God!”
The importance of appearance
Looking good is very important to members of the royal family, as royal biographer Andrew Morton has previously said that they are all defined by their appearances. Prince William and Kate are credited with playing an important role in uplifting the monarchy’s image in recent years: Morton commented that they “added Madison Avenue glamour to the royal family.”
The National Enquirer’s source agreed that this glamour needs to be maintained, adding, “As the future king, [William] has no option but to grow old gracefully.” With this in mind, the Duchess may also be in favour of her husband updating his wardrobe as well. According to the source, Kate is said to have told the prince “that he needs a complete style makeover”.
A third option for the prince
Shaving his head or getting a transplant are not the only options available to the future monarch – or to anyone with male pattern hair loss. There are medically-proven hair loss treatments also available, which don’t cost a royal budget!
