Prince William stepped out sporting a newly buzzed head at a royal engagement on Thursday and people have a whole lot of thoughts.
The Duke of Cambridge revealed his new haircut during a visit to Evelina’s Children’s Hospital in London on behalf of a new program that will help veterans.
But a lot of people were focused on William’s new ’do:

For reference, this is what William’s haircut looked like in October:
Some Twitter users really liked the new crop:
He looks a lot like Prince Edward. The new look suits him.

It looks good. He's a nice looking man, with or without hair. It's just not something that a person can control. It's rare not to lose hair as we age.

A more contemporary look. I like it. His smile has been his best feature. Engaging like his mother.

It suits him ️

While others weren’t totally sold on the shorn look:
He shaved too much on top

A closer shave might be more appealing.

Some took issue that media outlets were using the term “shaved” to describe the look:

Closely cropped, not ‘shaved’.

And some just couldn’t care less:
Is it really such a big deal for god sake!!!

Luckily, Prince William is a good sport about his hair and has joked about it on numerous occasions.
During a quick chat with a hairdresser in September, the Duke of Cambridge quipped, “I don’t have much hair. I can’t give you much business.” And when his son Prince George was born, William joked that he already had “way more hair than me, thank God!”
