Prince William Basically Shaved His Head: Investigating His New Haircut

01/10/2016 at 05:15 PM ET

If you thought Princess Kate’s bangs were a royal hair shocker, you might want to sit down. Because Prince William just got his first major haircut in years.

The royal stepped out with this family at Queen Elizabeth II’s Sandringham estate Sunday, and not even Princess Kate’s outfit rewear could distract us from Will’s new closely-cropped cut. (If you’re still stuck on the rewear, Kate wore the same $2,990 Michael Kors Collection tweed suit Sunday that she did for a church service at Sandringham two weeks ago.)

Back to the mane matter at hand. William’s hair is not only much shorter on the sides, but it also appears to be shaved on top. And the Twitterverse is baffled by his new look.

Our thoughts? It’s 2016, and we’re happy Will is deciding to switch up his look and tackle his thinning hair head on.

Good cut on

The man is balding…. What’s he supposed to do? Wrap what little hair he has remaining on top and wrap it around the bald spots? He’s not in denial of it and I think it looks better then having flying little whispy hairs all over.

Is this seriously news???

He didn’t shave the top of his head, he’s just heavily balding, and it’s been very visible for a few years now!

laura on

Thank goodness he’s not going for the Donald Trump look!

It’s Mr. Potatoe Head. Fugly like his father.

Guess I’m superficial, but if my husband was balding that young I’d encourage him to look into some kind of (at least) partial hair replacement.

Katie on

Haircut??? Bah ha ha ha all he did was comb down whatever hair was left. Pity- he was so handsome at age 15 when he had that thick blonde hair.

Gale Thompson on

Prince William has been “balding” for awhile now and I’ve wondered why, since there are solutions to that problem nowadays, and I don’t mean a toupee!

Kat on

Men look much better when they just accept they are going bald. The other options (fake looking wigs, those disgusting hair plugs or some kind of ridiculous Trump comb over) look so much worse.

I think it looks better than trying to kid on he has hair when he does not. There is nothing worse than a comb over. Having plugs is no better. Are we supposed to kid on that we did not notice someone had no hair last week and this week POOF instant hair? Men should cut it like this when it is balding. Anyone considering plugs should save money and get a chia pet!
