CROWN PRINCE: Thinning hair on top of Harry’s head
The prince is planning a Wayne Rooney-style op to cover a bald patch on the top of his head.
His closest friends have been sworn to secrecy over his plans. But fiancée Meghan Markle is said to be ‘massively behind’ his decision to go under the knife.
Harry will ask the royal household for special permission to undergo the procedure.
But he has been warned to wait until after his wedding to Meghan in Windsor in May so that his new hairdo doesn’t steal the headlines on their big day.
A source close to the prince, 33, revealed: “Harry knows that with his family genes he’s going to be losing a lot of hair in the coming few years.

“His brother William is already shedding loads of hair.
“He’s noticed on a lot of his appearances with Meghan that a bald patch at the top back of his scalp is getting much bigger.
“He’s a modern prince and he wants to stay looking as young as possible for as long as possible.”
They added: “Meghan helped to talk him into it because she’s seen dozens of her male friends in Hollywood going for these treatments and thinks they are amazing.

She has put him directly in touch with a top expert in this field who loads of the big stars in America use, so it’s definitely going to happen.
“Harry is looking at splashing out on the expensive procedure later in the year when all the commotion around the wedding calms down.”
Big brother Wills caused a stir two weeks ago when he sported a buzz cut. But Harry wants to go to the other extreme – and may have to undergo as many as four procedures to get the perfect natural look.
The source said: “Harry knows everyone will make a massive deal out of it, but he feels he’s young enough at 33 that he shouldn’t feel bad about wanting to reverse his hair loss.”
