Seems like you can't beat genetics with the Windsor family's male pattern baldness now haunting Prince Harry. His hair has become considerably sparser over the years. Now, the prince seems to be taking steps to bring back his crowning glory -- his signature red locks. 

Sources said he underwent thickening treatment at the prestigious Philip Kingsley Trichological Clinic in London’s Mayfair. The 35-year-old, like his brother William and father Charles, has struggled with hair loss with his bald patch almost doubling since he married Meghan Markle. But his famous ginger hair appears to have thickened since his visit to the clinic towards the end of last year. Meghan, 38, also paid a visit to the clinic before her wedding to Harry in May 2018.

Unlike Prince William, who has embraced the family trait, opting for a buzz cut, Prince Harry seems to be determined to hang on to what he has. The source said: “Harry’s visit caused a real stir. This company is so prestigious. It’s one of the best places in the world. It’s got a whole range of different treatment plans. The richest, most famous and well-connected use it. The meeting with Harry went well. It would be very expensive. It’s the place to go in London and it’s right in the heart of Mayfair.” Philip Kingsley was called the 'Hair Doctor' during his 65-year career. He died in 2016 at the age of 86. The company website boasts of treating royalty, actors, models, and athletes.

Thankfully, Harry's hair tribulations will remain a private matter unlike Prince William's baldness, which caused a crisis for Royal Mint chiefs over the design of a commemorative coin. Even as William won praise for embracing the Windsor family tradition for male pattern baldness by refusing to cover up his thinning thatch, officials at the Royal Mint wanted to give him "more hair" on the coin to celebrate four generations of the Royals.

The Prince's "hair loss makeover" was the subject of discussion among members of the advisory committee on the Design of Coins, Medals and Decorations which oversees the production of commemorative coins on behalf of the Royal Mint. The minutes for a meeting held at Buckingham Palace on June 20, 2017, state: "It was suggested that in any revised design Prince William be given slightly more hair."
