Prince William debuted a new haircut this week, and a new report claims that his future sister-in-law, Meghan Markle, is behind it. William’s hip, newly shaved head is supposedly the stylish result of the Hollywood actress joining the somewhat stuffy royal family.
The Duke of Cambridge’s wife, Kate Middleton, is loving her husband’s new buzz cut and she is thankful that Markle helped push for the modern look.
Middleton completely supports the hair makeover. She has been teasing William for years, but the jokes are always in good fun. However, she has wanted him to make a change for a while, and she is happy he finally agreed. And, she does credit Markle for giving him an extra push.
Prince William has always had a sense of humor about his thinning locks. The 35-year-old started losing his hair in his mid-twenties, and the topic has come up during past public appearances.
At a shearing demonstration at Sydney Olympic Park in Australia back in 2014, Middleton took a jab at her husband’s disappearing hair. When South Wales farmer Lyn Crejan showed the royal couple a tuft of wool similar to William’s shade, the Duchess of Cambridge couldn’t help herself.
“The Prince was interested in the alpaca, and as I showed it to them, the princess said he should put it on his head,” revealed Crejan. “She said, ‘You need it more than me,’ and pointed to his head and he laughed.”
Prince Harry has also gotten in on the action of making jokes at his brother’s expense. During his 2011 wedding toast, Harry shared that he has to make sure to embarrass William and “make him lose some hair.”
William’s new haircut is reportedly just step one for Middleton. She wants a total style overhaul – like a new cut for his suits and some more casual clothes, too – and she is enlisting Markle to help.
The Duchess of Cambridge is a big fan of Markle’s style, and she is excited to have her help with giving William a makeover. It is something the two are bonding over.
After a week of attending separate events, William and Kate recently teamed up for a working day of royal duties in the English city of Coventry, located about 110 miles northwest of London.
The royal couple visited the ruins of the city’s 15th-century cathedral that German bombers destroyed during World War II, and then a trip to the modern cathedral they rebuilt in 1962.
It was there that they participated in a prayer service aimed at “healing the wounds of history and building a culture of peace.”
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are getting ready to wed on May 19, 2018.
