Royal Insider: Prince Harry Will Get A Hair Transplant Before His Wedding
February 1, 2018 11:48 By Fabiosa
It is common knowledge that Prince Harry constantly pokes fun at his elder brother over his bald spot. But recent photos have shown that Prince Harry is also going bald. What seems to be the reason for this?
Hair loss is a common condition that affects men in general. In Britain, baldness is very common.
Hair loss runs in the royal family, so it is hardly surprising that Prince William and Prince Harry are going bald.
Prince Phillip, the Duke of Edinburgh and grandfather to Harry and William, has lost most of his top hair. Prince Charles, Prince of Wales and father to both princes, is also balding considerably.
Both princes are in their mid-thirties but have lost a considerable amount of their hair. Dr. Shahmalak notes that Prince Harry is likely to lose most of his hair in the next 10 years. However, he also mentions that the situation can be remedied.
He is getting a transplant
It is reported that Prince Harry will be getting a hair transplant before his wedding to Meghan Markle. The procedure is rumored to cost around $60,000.
Prince Harry last night attended the 100 Women in Finance gala dinner in aid of the WellChild charity at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. Prince Harry is patron of WellChild, a national charity offering support to seriously ill children and their families. During the event, Prince Harry met Jill Evans who has been supported by WellChild while caring for her son Noah, six, who has a rare lung condition. Prince Harry told guests their support was making a difference to the lives of hundreds of children and young people. ????PA.
And the palace insider who shared the information says Meghan Markle is in full support of the prince’s decision.
Prince Harry today guest edited BBC Radio 4's Today programme. The programme covered a wide range of topics HRH is passionate about, including technology, youth violence, the Armed Forces, mental health, the future of the Commonwealth, sport for social change, conservation and the environment. Today's guest edit also featured an interview with former US President @barackobama as well as a special conversation between Prince Harry and his father HRH The Prince of Wales @clarencehouse. You can listen to the full interviews with President Obama here http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p05s395q and The Prince of Wales here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p05s3lfy
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.
However, the insider says that Prince Harry will need a thumbs up from the palace before he can go ahead with treatment.
Kensington Palace refused to comment on the matter.
Next Prince Harry visited St Michael's on Wyre - a village which was affected by flooding in the winter of 2015/2016. HRH previously visited families last year and returned today to find out how work on their homes and in the community had progressed. After meeting people in the local community Prince Harry officially reopened the village hall which was damaged in the floods. #royalvisitlancashire
How the procedure works
The hair transplant requires several sessions as it is a delicate process. For starters, grafts are taken from other parts of the scalp that have hair. These first grafts are usually large patches.
Then the grafts are cut into smaller pieces. The smaller grafts are then placed in areas of the scalp that are thinning. The same process is done several times, with the grafts gradually becoming smaller until the entire scalp is covered.
For most people, the large grafts usually number about 50. But the mini and micrografts may be as many as 700 per session.
Also, the number of hairs per graft depends on the size. So, larger grafts have more hairs on them.
Several sessions are required to complete the process, and healing takes a couple of months. All ears are still on the ground to see if the information in circulation is true.
