Perceptive royals-watchers have noticed that the Windsors have a new addition to the family — Prince William‘s bushy facial hair. The heir to the throne has been sporting the sea-captain look in recent weeks, with photographers catching a clean-shaven Prince Harry and a noticeably shaggy Prince “Hairy” playing soccer on Christmas Eve. Wills even snagged runner-up in the Beard of the Year award, given out annually by the Beard Liberation Front to those who give the facially fuzzy a good name. Prince William joins other high-wattage names who’ve taken to letting their inner lumberjacks out, including Robert Pattinson, Jake Gyllenhaal and Hugh Jackman. Tell us: What do you think of Prince William’s new beard? Vote in our poll below! –Michael Y. Park

I think it looks good on him. He’s getting older and the clean look just makes him look like a kid, so i think he looks good. If he wants to keep his beard i think he should at least try to keep it nice and clean and tidy. But come on, who ever said that he looks like his dad is seriously blind. Prince Charles has nothing on Prince William. I think the beard makes him look Handsome.

YUCK! He looks like his father another YUCK!

Will on

The beard makes him look handsome and distinguished. A face befitting the crown he will one day wear.

He looks great with the beard, more handsome. But I really don’t care. Btw he doesn’t look like his dad at all, he is the same image of Diana. Harry looks like his dad a lot.

The men of the Royal family have always worn beards. It’s only recently that they have gone clean shaven. The beard makes William look like The Queens Father George VI. I like it. It deffinatley brings out the resemblance to his Royal ancestors.
