Prince Harry’s hair loss has accelerated since Megxit.
A leading cosmetic surgeon in the UK has claimed that the Duke of Sussex will be virtually bald by age 50.
Despite the obvious hair loss, Dr Asim Shahmalak of Crown Clinic in Manchester says that Harry is balding at a slower pace than William.
Dr Shahmalak said that at the age of 36, Harry is at the same stage of hair loss as William was when he was 26.
“The baldness gene is not as strong in Harry but he is still losing his hair quickly,” he said. “At present most of Harry’s hair loss is around the crown area.”
“He has a growing bald patch right across his crown and you can also see that his hair is also thinning out towards the front,” he explained. “Without treatment, the acceleration we have seen over the last 15 months will only increase over the next year.”
“Harry may never be as bald as his brother William,” he added. “William has been more affected than any of the royal men.”
“He inherited the powerful baldness gene from his father Prince Charles who got it from his father Prince Philip,” Dr Shahmalak said. “With each generation, the hair loss appears to be getting worse which can happen in some families.”
“An added factor is that there is also a hair loss gene on Harry and William’s mother Diana’s side,” Dr Shahmalak explained. “Her father, Earl Spencer, was also bald.”
“The baldness gene can be passed down on both sides of the family.”
Over the last 12 years, William has lost nearly all the hair on the top of his scalp while Harry’s hair loss has been slower.
But, there has been a noticeable hair loss acceleration over the last two years in the younger prince, the doctor claimed.
Dr Shahmalak showed an image to Mail Online to show how Prince Harry’s hair will look at 50.
“No two brothers are the same, but both William and Harry have inherited the same baldness gene,” the doctor explained. “It is too late for Prince William and there is nothing that can be done to reverse his hair loss. Harry still has time if he wants to take action.”
“Harry will be almost as bald as his older brother at 50 if he does nothing, though he will probably have a little more hair at the front of his scalp.”
