Prince William's Balding Hasten Engagement - Thinning hair? It's been suggested that Prince William's balding led to a hasten engagement. He could always wear a hat and still be a heartthrob.
Rumor has it that even a young Kate Middleton had a poster of him on her wall. But when Wills starting balding, the appropriately named Harry took over the role of royal hottie. So leave it to the New York Times to suggest a connection between William's hair thinning and his recent engagement.
"You Can Leave Your Hat On" and "No Hair to the Throne" are among the many headlines that have appeared in the British tabloids. Which poses a question: Is it possible that the 28-year-old prince felt an urge to lock up a commitment from Ms. Middleton because his heart-throb status might be beginning to disappear with the hair? If so, what must the rest of the not-so-princely men in the world feel when youthful looks begin to fade?
Because of the blow to their self-esteem, some balding men simply settle when it comes to spouses, Mr. [Spencer] Kobren [host of thebaldtruth.com] said. "Guys believe they don't have much time left as they continue to lose their hair. They kind of grab the person closest to them who they find relatively attractive at the time. Emotionally, it's too difficult for them to go out there and try to court the girl of their dreams if they are feeling emotionally insecure about themselves."
