Prince William has long battled against baldness, and began losing his hair in his twenties.
The royal famously shaved his head in January last year in order to hide the worst impact of the hair loss.
Prince Harry always loved mocking his brother for his hair loss, once quipping: ‘I think he definitely is brainier than I am, but we established that at school, along with his baldness.’
And it seems The Duke of Sussex isn’t the only one to comment on the royal’s balding hair.

‘This was *not* at all what I was expecting to see!!! The best tweet I’ve seen in response to this, was someone saying Seb has been “Prince William’d.”
A further joked: ‘I literally said to my husband, “why the f*** does Vettle suddenly look like Prince William?’
