Prince William Embraces The Bald And Shaves Off Remaining Hair

Fans of the British Royal Family love watching them grow from wee babies into future kings or queens of the UK and the Commonwealth. But it was hard to miss the fact that as Prince William progressed through his 20s, his hair was fading.

There are plenty of websites dedicated to commentating on the Duke of Cambridge's mop, but it looks as though he's finally embraced the bald.

Arriving at the Evelina London Children's Hospital, London, the 35-year-old showed off the new do as it seems as though he's received a buzzcut on his remaining hair.

Regardless, the Royal was greeted with the regular throng of people desperate to get a look at him as he launched an initiative designed to help ex-servicemen and woman use the skills they already have to make a foray into the National Health Service.

Tiffany Hemming, who served for 20 years and has benefitted from the project told BBC Breakfast: "Military personal have lots of skills that are directly transferable to the NHS. You have to be very good at assessing a situation and making a decision quite quickly which enables us to get things done."

But Wills shouldn't lament the further loss of his hair as a study claims that baldness is sexy.

The research, taken at the University of Pennsylvania, has discovered that when it comes to hair, these days less is more. Better yet, none is best.

Participants in the study (male and female) were asked to assess (or rate) pictures of men according to their attractiveness, confidence and dominance, sort of like a retro version of Tinder if you will, without the swiping left or right element, or disappointing Boost results every month.

In each category, bald men came out victorious, with shaven-headedness being viewed as appealing because the chaps had gone against the grain when it came to traditional norms associated with attractiveness and hair.

That's exactly what Prince William appears to have done.

But it's not as if he doesn't get enough stick at home about his ever-receding hair.

The Daily Mail says younger brother Harry regularly teases him about it but his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, upped the ante during a Royal trip to Sydney in 2014.

While at the Royal Easter Show, Kate Middleton was shown a tuft of alpaca wool. But instead of smiling and saying 'oh that's delightful', she pointed to Wills head and said: "You need it more than me."
