Buried amongst the revelations coming out of the leaks of Prince Harry's memoir, Spare, is Prince William's supposed thoughts on Prince Harry's beard—and Harry's feelings about William's hair loss.
When Prince Harry returned to the UK for their grandfather Prince Philip's funeral, King Charles tried to help his sons reconcile. When Harry saw William, he writes, "I looked at Willy, really looked at him, perhaps for the first time since we were little, taking in every detail: his familiar scowl, which had always been the norm in his dealings with me." He adds, his brother's baldness was "alarming" and more "advanced than mine," according to the Daily Mail.
"My dear brother, my archenemy, how did we come to this?" Harry supposedly wrote. "I felt overwhelming tiredness. I wanted to go home."
In another part of the memoir, Prince Harry discusses even more hair drama. Harry wanted to keep his beard for his wedding to Meghan Markle, and Prince William was against it. "At one point he actually ordered me, as the ‘heir’ speaking to the ‘spare,’ to shave," Harry reportedly wrote, per Page Six. "He hated the idea of me enjoying a perk he’d been denied."
However, Queen Elizabeth supported him, and there was nothing William could do. Harry reportedly adds, "Finally, I told him flatly and defiantly that his bearded brother was getting married soon, and he could either get on board or not. The choice was up to him."
