I’m going to risk coming across as extremely shallow and petty. Why? Because the question must be asked: what happened to Prince William’s looks?
I’m not a fan, nor do I follow his antics, but when I saw a recent photo of Wills and his newly betrothed, I thought… sheesh.
I can remember at one time finding the lad somewhat cute and physically appealing. I remember when he looked like the next photo. He still had his mother good looks. Tall, thin….coltish. His forehead still looked normal and much less elongated and encelphalitic.
I don’t know when this photo was taken, but it was obviously during a time that was physically kinder to the man whose second in line to the British throne.
But something happened. He’s now first in line for a little Rogaine.
As you can see, the Prince is losing his hair.
Not just one or two jumpers. From the looks of it, it’s exiting his scalp en mass.
Now, spare me the insults. I know I’m not perfect and far be it from me to imply that male pattern baldness isn’t attractive. I’m not saying that. In fact, I know some roguishly handsome cue ball heads. It’s just that I doubt Prince William could or would ever be one of them.
Not now, anyway.
And really, it goes beyond the sparse elephant hair with a two-inch span between each single strand. What I’m really talking about is his face and body. He’s face is gaunt, he looks thin and lanky…kind of dweebish, actually. I guess he hasn’t aged well. He’s what? Twenty-eight now? Sometimes that happens. Great looking kids become beastly looking adults. And while he’s not Steve Buscemi homely, or even anywhere near that level, he’s hardly the fetching young man he used to be.
Still a Prince yes, but also a current member of “The Heir Club”.
And before I put this bad boy to bed, let’s discuss younger brother, Harry. The red-head is apparently a piece of work. All that red hair…freckles, the impish grin.
Let’s take a look at the Brothers Windsor side by side, shall we?
Yep, both have similar eyes and they share that pronounced British proboscis. I can see a definite family resemblance……but as half brothers????
This has been discussed many times before and tongues have wagged over this rumor for as long as Harry has been alive. As the story goes, Harry is Charles’ son. He’s James Hewitt’s.
Hewitt is a former British Army officer, who had an affair with Princess Diana for five years which ultimately ended in 1992.
As mentioned, it’s been a popular speculation for decades that Hewitt is the biological father of Prince Harry, something Hewitt has denied. He once told The Sunday Mirror that when he met Diana, Harry was already a toddler.
But the resemblance between them is uncanny. Hewitt is a red-head and so his Harry….but so are many members of the Spencer family. There was a story that perhaps even Diana had her doubts and or wanted to quell the rumors and she had a blood test performed on Harry to end speculation, but results were never published. There has even been a plot to steal some of Harry’s hair for the same purpose.
And Harry is something of a wild child. Quite the player. If you remember, he got in trouble for dressing like Hitler or a Nazi SS officer for Halloween (I can’t remember which…not that it really mattered when it comes to being offensive….especially coming from “a Royal”). He’s also shot off his mouth for various things and opened it wide enough to place his foot in, too.
Does the apple fall far from the tree? Shortly after Diana’s death, Hewitt tried to sell his sixty personal letters from Diana for £10 million. I don’t think there were very many takers.
Then again, there is a resemblance between Harry and Charles….kind of.
There’s also a resemblance between Harry and his grandfather, Prince Phillip when he was much younger.
If he is a Hewitt, that makes him a bastard and historically speaking, the entire British monarchy has always been filthy with bastard children; kids born to royal mistresses, horny courtesans and the relationship by-products of chevalier servants like Hewitt was to Diana.
But after all these years, what does it matter if Harry is a true Windsor or a Hewitt? He’s the third in line to the succession of the thrones of 16 sovereign states; behind his father and older brother. He’s the proverbial spare to the heir. Harry’s paternity is of no consequence to me. I would imagine very few would care one way or the other. Besides…and I saw this not as a conspiracy freak; just someone who has a grasp on how the world works. Test results can be altered, as can backstories. Dates can be changed or eliminated with a keystroke with little to no chance of tracing who struck the key. Records are just as easily destroyed.
Lies are the stuff of life for the agenda driven.
