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

it looks like he’s doing what he want’s to do and that’s great!

I agree with Jenn. In fact, he would look great with a goatee because he has a recessed chin and the goatee would give balance to the length of his face.

I think he’s absolutely gorgeous – beard or no beard, inside and out. Beard makes him look older though. Diana would have been so proud… *sigh*

Canadian on

I don’t know how many of the responses have come from Canada but, I as one thinks he looks more mature with it. However, I do prefer him without it. I don’t know why you would think he looks like that father of his, he is so much like his mother. Yes, she would be proud of him and Harry. They are exactly what she wanted them to be. However, being a Royal, I doubt the Queen will be very happy with his new look, and may have something to say about it. Only in private is he her grandson, in public he is a representative of the Royal family and she makes the decisions about this. I like his strong attitude towards all of his issues. He is just amazing.

I think he looks hot either way. I prefer him without though. And I think Harry has gotten to be hotter than Wills anyday, which I never thought I would say!

Linda on

This guy is too pretty to be masculin. Harry is the HOTTIE of the two…and is he HOT!

Lori on

I like him with or without the beard, but what about the hair on top? It looks like he’s thinning out a bit! OMG!

Nikki on

I like his beard, but clean shaven is better. :)

kristie on

I really don’t like this. I thought he was passable before, but this is, just ugh. give me Harry any day!

unintendedchoice on

I like a man with a beard! He looks older and “dashing” :)
