Prince Harry is aware that he is losing hair and even joke about himself getting bald. The Duke of Sussex bonded with some athletes at the Invictus Games and they made fun of their receding hairlines.
Prince Harry Says He Is Doomed As He Is Already Getting Bald
A Dutch TV show filmed Prince Harry and some Invictus Games participants in the Netherlands. One athlete was having makeup applied on his forehead as he prepared to face the cameras. Prince Harry joked, "You've got a lot more to be done there," per Us Weekly.
The participant told the royal that it "won't take a long time" until he is going bald due to his receding hairline. Prince Harry shared his own hair loss struggles and joked while trying to comfort the participant, "But you’re slower than me. I’m already — I’m doomed."
Another man joined the conversation and jokingly told Prince Harry that "We have the same barber." Meghan Markle's husband laughed.
Prince Harry Could Be Bald When He Turns 50 Due To Rapid Hair Loss
Dr. Asim Shahmalak saw Prince Harry's photos during his royal tour to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga. According to the hair expert, the royal's hair loss is undeniable and he is seeing Meghan Markle's husband bald by 50.
"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," the hair transplant expert said (as quoted by Daily Star). "If he does not take action now, he faces suffering from advanced male pattern baldness like his brother in his forties and beyond."
Shahmalak suggested a hair loss transplant for the royal. According to him, it's the only "long-term solution." The duke could grow his beard to "compensate for the hair loss on his scalp."
"It is very common for men who are thinning on top to grow a beard," the expert said. "It does detract a little for the hair loss in the scalp."
Prince Harry and his pals are aware of his hair loss. His best friend Charlie van Straubenzee even poked fun at it and his scandals in his wedding speech. However, the joke about the royal's baldness and past scandals was all in good fun.
"He brought up Harry's tabloid antics and made fun of his hair loss," a source told Us Weekly about van Straubenzee's speech. "The entire room was cracking up."
