Perceptive royals-watchers have noticed that the Windsors have a new addition to the family — Prince William‘s bushy facial hair. The heir to the throne has been sporting the sea-captain look in recent weeks, with photographers catching a clean-shaven Prince Harry and a noticeably shaggy Prince “Hairy” playing soccer on Christmas Eve. Wills even snagged runner-up in the Beard of the Year award, given out annually by the Beard Liberation Front to those who give the facially fuzzy a good name. Prince William joins other high-wattage names who’ve taken to letting their inner lumberjacks out, including Robert Pattinson, Jake Gyllenhaal and Hugh Jackman. Tell us: What do you think of Prince William’s new beard? Vote in our poll below! –Michael Y. Park

He looks good but i think a clean cut shave makes him more presentable, and being the prince of england he might want to look more clean and serious. the beard makes him look like he went out partying and didn’t have time to shave. SHAVE SHAVE SHAVE

It emphasizes his thinning hair and something about it gives me the creeps…

I’ve always thought Harry was the hotter/cuter/more handsome prince anyways, never understood the appeal of William. Oh well, I don’t like it, but my opinion doesn’t matter really, and I just don’t like beards in general.

Look, Its another one of those Gibb brothers.

King William? on

Kings usually have beards, what do you expect.

He looks fine either way, but the beard makes him look more grown up and responsible. Personally, I don’t think he looks hot in either picture but the beard is better.

AliLou on

He was definitely cuter without the beard but with the beard he looks so king-like!
Before I could never picture him as the king of England or Wales or whatever he would be king of, but now I totally can.

He looks nothing like his father. He looks just like his mother! I like the beard. Give him a break. What choices do men have like women to change their appearance and not look strange if they do. So, he grew a beard. If he likes it, that’s all that matters. He could shave his head, or dye his hair red, or let it grow to his shoulders. I think the beard is something fun for him to try without going overboard. I say “go Wills”.

Sem barba e com leve clareamento nos dentes.
