Prince Harry Allegedly Sports New Hairstyle After Meghan Markle Criticized His Baldness
Prince Harry has, allegedly, changed his hairstyle months after rumors swirled that Meghan Markle doesn’t like his bald spot.
During a recent video call, it seemed as though Prince Harry has thicker but shorter hair. According to Woman’s Day, his new hairstyle also made him look a few years younger than his real age.
“Harry kept his hair longer and somewhat unruly in a bid to mask the bald spot at the top of his head. But rumor has it Meghan was badgering him to get it done,” the source said.
The insider also said that getting hair treatments is the norm in Hollywood. And Markle, allegedly, wants her husband to look the part because he’s now residing in the United States.
“I can’t see him getting such a short haircut without them – he’s pretty self-conscious about that bare patch. His British mates will tease him but you have to admit he looks amazing. The haircut has taken years off him,” the source said.
While it is true that Prince Harry has shorter hair now, it’s unlikely because Markle encouraged him to do something about his unruly hair. And if Prince Harry wants to do something about his baldness, that’s also entirely up to him.
When the Duke and Duchess of Sussex met four years ago, Prince Harry’s hair was already thinning. As such, Markle must have already seen the condition of his hair, and she’s not that superficial to want to force Prince Harry to do something about it.
Male-pattern baldness is something that the other members of the royal family are also experiencing. For instance, Prince William’s hair has been thinning for years. Prince Philip also has a receding hairline, and Prince Charles has also started to lose some of his hair. Prince Edward has also been partially bald for years.
Meanwhile, there have been claims that Prince Harry’s bald patch doubled in size after he married Markle and became a dad to Archie.
Dr. Asim Shahmalak said that this is may partially be due to Prince Harry experiencing a different level of stress since he became a husband and a father.
“You can see a definite acceleration in his male pattern baldness in the last few months. Stress is a factor in hair loss so the struggles of combining his royal duties with marriage and becoming a father for the first time may be a reason why his hair is thinning noticeably across the top of his scalp. A much more significant factor, though, is the strong baldness gene running through the whole Windsor family. It started with Prince Philip and has now been passed down to Prince Charles and on to his sons Prince William and Prince Harry,” he said.
