Harry’s fac­ing the bald truth...

Daily Mail - - Front Page - From Re­becca English Royal Cor­re­spon­dent in Cape Town

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.

Con­fes­sion: Harry said he ‘didn’t en­joy’ school

Thin­ning crowns: Wil­liam, left, and Charles
