Between Harry and William, the former has always been the one blessed with abundant hair but that is fast becoming history. In fact, Harry is giving Will a run for his money!

We have to stop and ask what is happening to Harry's ginger locks, which we love so much.

Dr. Asim Shahmalak is a doctor at the Crown Clinic Manchester. He is of the opinion that Prince Harry has had an increase in hair loss, at double the rate within one year.

The reason? Shahmalak claims that it may be because of his wedding in May last year and the birth of his son just last week.

He explained:

"Stress is a factor in hair loss so the struggles of combining his royal duties with marriage and becoming a father for the first time may be a reason why his hair is thinning noticeably across the top of his scalp."

Obviously, the baldness gene is dominant in the Windsor family as we see it in Prince Philip, Prince Charles and of course,  Prince William.

However, the stress of the past year may be a major trigger for Harry's accelerated hair loss.

He was at the Invictus Games launch in Holland, on May 9, and the bald patch we spotted was quite sizable, much bigger than we remember it used to be. So, this doctor just may be right.

The doctor further added that there might be hope for Harry if he gets a hair transplant now.

He also said that it is not uncommon for men of Harry's age to experience hair loss, even though the Prince is only 34 years old.

Well, now we understand why Harry has taken to growing a beard, and we wonder if he will toe the same line as his older brother and get a skin cut.

It is rather ironic the way things have played out. Once upon a time, Harry used to tease his brother about his hair loss, which began in the latter's 20s. Now, look at how the tables have turned.

Anyway, if Archie's arrival is truly the reason for the speedy baldness, we have some news flash for Harry: He's got a long way to go because daddy duties have just begun!

We hope Meghan and Harry are able to relax soon, though!
