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

The beard makes him look much older. I don’t like it. On a random note: Is it just me or does it look like he’s started balding? I know balding is hereditary and his father has it, but maybe I’m just hallucinating.

Oh Prince William!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I would do him. Yesssssssss!
He has always been sexy.
Even if he wasn’t a Prince but poor lower class dude.
Love the look (he will always be a nice guy. Just like his mum!)

He looks like Barry Gibb!

he does not look like his dad at all!! He looks just like his mother! She was beautiul and he looks gorgeous with the new look!

I dont think it looks completely horrible but I do think it ages him too much. He looks way older than his 27 years. I think he could pull off a little scruffy or as Jenn suggested, a goatee.

jkay on

it makes him look older, and makes his teeth look more yellow.

To a couple of you ladies that wrote in and asked how in the world can he look like his Dad?! You’re right! I’m asking the same question!But anyway…he’s a very nice looking young man and he looks good either way.
