Although it seems like all talk surrounding the royal wedding has been about Meghan Markle’s look — from what she would wear, to how her hair and veil would be styled — Prince Harry has also been at the center of some grooming questions.
Mainly about his facial hair.
And now we have two big questions. Will PrinceHarry still have his beard ? And which designer will have designed Megan Markel wedding gown? #answersplease

THE question: beard or no beard for Prince Harry on his wedding day? #RoyalWedding

While the groom has been rocking a beard for quite some time, people had speculated he would be clean-shaven for the nuptials, especially considering his military past.
According to rules of the British army, for which Harry served for a decade, active military members must be clean-shaven. However, having received special permission from the queen to wear his uniform, although he is no longer active, Harry was able to break some rules and rock his beard.
An announcement from the royal family said, “Both Prince Harry and The Duke of Cambridge will wear the frockcoat uniform of the Blues and Royals,” which was seen when the brothers appeared side-by-side at the chapel.
But even more than his dapper looks, onlookers were ecstatic to see that Harry’s beard remains.

Ekkk!! Prince Harry and His Brother arrive in military uniform to lots of cheers! Both looking very handsome. And Harry is still rocking his beard. Some royal experts thought he would cut it. #royalwedding pic.twitter.com/zCPAQ02IFF

It’s no surprise that Harry would be less traditional in his choice to keep his facial hair, as he has decided to wear a wedding ring — something not all British royals do.
