Is Prince Harry following in Prince William's foot, erm, hairsteps?

In what appears to be a bit of royal irony, the 28-year-old was recently photographed with what looks like some hair loss on his ginger head. Is Prince Harry going bald??

    It's too bad the boys didn't get Diana's genes for big hair.

The naughty prince, who is known for getting into trouble, including a nude scandal in Las Vegas last year, must be a bit upset that his famously full head of hair is starting to fade, just like his brother's. So does this mean no more hair jokes between the royal twosome? (Harry famously teased Kate Middleton's husband that an official portrait of the king-to-be has more hair on his head than he does in real life.)

Jonny Harris, a hair-loss expert and managing director of the Belgravia Centre hair clinic, told the Daily Mail that Harry will likely have thin hair by the time he hits 50 while Prince William will be bald by the time he's 40. Somehow we doubt that these predictions turn off would-be royal princesses. If a balding prince is good enough for the Duchess of Cambridge, who are we to judge?

So who do we have to blame for the royal brothers' hair woes? Dad Prince Charles, who turns 65 in November, still has lots of his hair although it's hard to tell because of his comb-over. Even their grandfather Prince Philip is hanging on to some strands of hair, although he's mostly bald at the top, and he turns 92 in June.

So while it seems that hair loss is likely, it's more probable that both men will have significant hair thinning.
