PRINCE Harry is following in the footsteps of his older brother Prince William in losing his hair and is looking remarkably thinner on top of his head.
The 34-year-old has developed a sizable bald patch since marrying Meghan Markle in May, and an expert has said he could consider getting a “hair transplant.”
The balding area has expanded since he tied the knot Windsor Castle, and extends right down the back of his scalp.
Dr Asim Shahmalak from Manchester’s Crown Clinic said: “There has been a significant acceleration of his baldness in the last year and Harry is now losing his hair as rapidly as his brother William.
“If he does not take action now, he faces suffering from advanced male pattern baldness like his brother in his forties and beyond.
“It is to Harry’s credit that he has not resorted to using hair thickeners or dying his hair darker. He clearly has a wife in Meghan who loves him no matter what the state of his hair.
“However, the only long-term solution to the hair loss that Prince Harry is suffering from is a hair transplant.”
Another hair loss expert has even claimed that Prince Harry may even have “rushed into a marriage” with Meghan Markle due to “niggling insecurities” over his developing “hair loss”.
Hair loss guru Spencer Stevenson, of SpexHair told the Sun Online: “I think young men may rush into marriages because they feel as though no one will be interested in them once their receding hairline worsens.”
He said of Prince Harry: “He may be sixth in line to the British throne, but Prince Harry’s own receding crown of hair could very well have played into these same anxieties. He’s only human after all.
“To many, he was one of the most desirable bachelors in the world, but if he’d had a niggling insecurity like that which comes with hair loss, it could very well have influenced him to make a snap decision on marriage.
“When you consider his apparent Jack-the-Lad nature, and the fact that he’s constantly in the public eye, it’s probably safe to assume that he too could have been paranoid that his own thinning crown would make him less attractive – despite his wealth and status.”
Prince Harry announced he was engaged to Suits actress Meghan Markle in November 2017, just a year after it emerged they were dating in late 2016.
Harry always loved mocking his brother for his hair loss, once quipping: “I think he definitely is brainier than I am, but we established that at school, along with his baldness.”
It’s not just Wills who lost his hair, the princes’ dad Charles and grandfather Philip were also blighted by baldness – and Harry has clearly inherited the gene too.
Dr Shahmalak, whose celeb clients include Calum Best and TV’s Dr Christian Jessen, added that Harry may have grown his beard to compensate for his thinning hair.
He said: “It is very common for men who are thinning on top to grow a beard. It does detract a little for the hair loss in the scalp.
“Beards are also a sign of virility and men are often reassured by the fact that while they may be losing hair on top, it still grows well in other parts of their body.”
