Harry’s facing the bald truth...
HE was showing off his fancy footwork with a ball, but all eyes were glued to Prince Harry’s head yesterday – and his growing bald spot.
The exertion of playing football in a South African township left the 31-year- old royal with his hair plastered to his head.
It became increasingly clear that he suffers the same baldness that plagues the men in his family, including his father Charles and older brother William.
Harry was visiting a football project in Khayelitsha, one of the most dangerous townships in South Africa where the body of murdered honeymooner Anni Dewani was discovered.
Earlier in the day he told a group of teenage boys at a correction centre in Cape Town that he had hated school and wanted to be ‘a bad boy’.
The prince, who went to Ludlow prep school and Eton College, said: ‘I didn’t enjoy school at all. I would like to have come to a place like this. When I was at school I wanted to be the bad boy.’
He did, however, urge the boys to stand up against peer pressure to be drawn into a life of crime.
