London - Queen Elizabeth's hairdresser thinks Britain's Prince William should undergo a hair transplant.
Ian Carmichael believes the 29-year-old royal's thinning locks would benefit from the same treatment as Manchester United and England soccer ace Wayne Rooney, who recently opted for the cosmetic procedure in order to rectify his bald patch.
He told the Daily Express newspaper
: "I think William should have a hair transplant. I know he doesn't want to because he thinks people would mock him for it but there's really no shame in it. It's not just Wayne Rooney, so many men are having them.
"William had braces on his teeth when he was younger and it's the same principle. It's all cosmetic, isn't it? Hair and teeth are the key to looking young."
Prince William's bald patch was the subject of ridicule from his father Prince Charles during a speech he made at the young royal's wedding
to Duchess Catherine.
One guest recalled: "He joked about his own bald patch and his son's thinning hair, saying it must be hereditary.
"Everyone found it funny, even William and Catherine."
