Poor Prince Harry! Or should we say, Prince not-so-hairy? After years of poking fun at his older brother, Prince William, for balding, Harry is finally reaping the effects of karma. The Duke of Sussex, “was terrified of going bald and even considered getting a hair transplant,” a royal insider dished to Life & Style. Luckily for the ginger-headed hunk, Meghan Markle still “thinks Harry’s hot — hair or no hair.”
Harry, 34, recently showed off his bald patch while on tour in Sydney, Australia. William, 36, who apparently finds this hysterical (do we blame him?), “Will tease him with comments like, ‘Guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the family tree.'” While Harry is still not fond of losing his golden-red locks, the thought of balding allegedly terrified him even more when he was a bachelor.
That all changed, though, when Harry met the love of his life, Meghan. According to the insider, Meghan, 37, “changed his mind” about feeling self-conscious about his dreaded fate, and even turned him off of the hair transplant idea.
Funnily enough, Harry isn’t the only one whose teased William for balding around the crown — and not his royal crown, the area affected on the top of the head. Believe it or not, William’s wife, Kate Middleton, is guilty of taunting her husband’s thinning hair. In 2014, the royal duo was walking around Sydney Olympic Park in Australia when they came across a farmer named Lyn Crejan.
The farmer showed William and Kate, 36, some alpaca wool at the Duke’s request, and it just so happens that the wool ended up being the same shade of brown as his hair. “The Prince was interested in the alpaca, and as I showed it to them, the Princess said he should put it on his head,” Lyn dished according to Us Weekly. “She said, ‘You need it more than me,’ and pointed to his head and he laughed.” William laughing at his wife’s jokes say that he either is a really good sport, or he’s just used to all the teasing.
Unfortunately for Harry, he is now going to get a taste of his own medicine by being the butt of the jokes alongside William. “It could only be a matter of time before Harry goes completely bald like his brother,” the insider revealed. Don’t worry, Harry, you’re still going to be as handsome as ever!
