Queen Orders Prince Harry to Shave His Beard: VIDEO


Prince Harry has been ordered by the Queen to (“sooner rather than later”) shave the bushy polar beard he grew while on his charity trek in Antarctica, the Express reports:

He returned to Britain just in time for the festive celebrations at Sandringham but although his brother William and sister-in-law Kate said they loved his “Windsor whiskers” his grandmother was apparently not amused.

Harry has said beards are a royal tradition and told a well-wisher watching his family walk to church on Christmas morning that he intended to keep his. “The rest of the family liked it and were taking the mickey, especially his cousin Zara who dubbed him ‘Prince Hairy’,” said a royal insider.

“But the Queen soon let her displeasure be known. She doesn’t mind royal men growing beards when they are away in the Armed Forces or out in the wilds like Harry was in the Antarctic, but she expects them to be clean-shaven when they get home.

Watch a cute video shot during the lead-up to the trek, in which his beard is just a babe, AFTER THE JUMP...

  2. A trek to the South Pole with Prince Harry and Alexander Skarsgard? Sign me up! (Skarsgard was a U.S. delegation invitee.)

  3. What business is it of that stupid, unelected whore whether 'Prince' Harry has a beard or not.

    When will Britain become a democracy?

  4. @MaryM

    Britain already is a democracy. The Queen has been in power for over 60 years, I doubt she's stupid, and she's not a whore. But thank you anyways for your articulate argument. I'm sure you made your point to everyone. Are you even a citizen of The Commonwealth?

    Long Live The Queen, and Long Live the Monarchy.

  5. LOL @ Woody!

    I wonder if she'd feel the same way if she had to rake a blade across her face every morning.

    Beards on princes are pretty much part of England's history. Not sure what her problem is other than being an old C.

  6. @Chris - Britain has an unelected head of state and and unelected Upper House of Parliament. It is only the Lower House of Parliament which is democratically elected in Britain (and the voting system for that house is as primitive as the US system).

    Plus Britain does not have separation of church and state - the 'queen' is also head of the Cult of England.

    It is a gross exaggeration to claim that Britain is a democracy.

  7. Isn't the queen telling the Wrong Prince to lose his beard? just saying

  8. @MaryM: she's his grandmother. That's what business it is of hers. It's not exactly unusual to have an overbearing grandparent with opinions about your life.

  9. So how does she explain the facial hair of her grandfather, and his father, and his father...

  10. Well AJ - young Mr Harry Windsor needs to tell his interfering old grandmother - Lizzie Windsor - to f*** right off.

    The British monarchy makes an utter joke out of Britain.

  11. I bet most Queens want him to keep it!

  12. Tell ma'am to stuff it. Grow a pair,Harry.

    And what Mary said is accurate regarding democracy in the UK.

  14. I'd like the queen to shave her legs.

  15. Well, now we know one queen who doesn't have a Scuff membership.

  16. The Queen said:
    "Now know ye that we, me annoy thy beard."

  18. The horrors of being a UK Royal!

  19. The Queen pays the piper, so she can call the tune. They both know it.

  20. But...but..your Majesty...he looks so HOT in it!!

  21. She's probably just concerned about the PR. He's starting to look and act too much like that other "Harry", the one with the six wives, who was also a famously handsome redhead in his youth.

    Maybe Harry can donate his beard to be made into a hairpiece for his brother.

  22. The decision people decide to argue over when they have no real power.

  23. To the tower with her!!!

  24. She sounds like a typical feminist...hating men...

  25. @ MARYM & others:

    Many of the EU heads of State are Monarchs;

    I doubt very much that the Queen gave any such order. Her grandfather and great grandfather had beards.

    And of course so does Uncle Edward....!!!!
