Prince William’s Hairline is Fading Fast

01 Apr

Since when did this kind of issue end up in the headlines? I find this bit of news very absurd and tacky. I just don’t understand why we need to read something like this in major newspapers? Fine, if I see this in gossip magazines but on widely-circulated paper??? Tsk, tsk, tsk, I can’t believe it. Can’t the writers focus on issues regarding uprising in Libya, crisis in Japan or the unemployment and foreclosure problems here in the US?

Read here excerpts about this ridiculous piece of garbage that was published in the Daily News, a major publication in Los Angeles. After reading it, please give me your thoughts because I want to know whether my opinion is correct or I’m just over reacting.

Prince William looks like someone who has it all: royal status, a charming fiancee, good health, and an easy touch with his future subjects. But there is one thing he lacks: a full head of hair.

Casual observers who have not paid much attention to Britain’s future king in the years before his recent engagement to Kate Middleton have been surprised by the extent of the 28-year-old’s hair loss.

The British tabloids have been merciless in their coverage, constantly punning the “hair to the throne” theme, and comparing his hair loss to that of his father, Prince Charles.

William keeps his hair short, as befits a Royal Air Force helicopter rescue pilot, but the military look only emphasizes the way his hairline has changed.

William’s receding hairline has a genetic link. His father, Charles, and his grandfather, Prince Philip, also experienced it, although at a slower pace.

Dr. Bessam Farjo, a British hair restoration surgeon who has treated patients as young as 14, said William should take steps now to keep as much hair as possible. Farjo said it has become socially acceptable over the last decade for men to intervene to prevent hair loss.

There is a simpler solution: William could just follow in his grandmother’s footsteps and develop a fondness for hats.

    Hi, friendship! If you didn’t like this piece of “news”, so why posting it? It’s just like panning the flames for more fire, right?

      I know, I shouldn’t have but I just can’t contain my disgust over how people pick on someone without regard. Respect is the key word here.

    So, even a prince can’t escape from the media vultures.
