Prince Harry left his face unshaven for the Christmas festivities -- and his ginger beard has become the talk of town.
One might think that such an unkempt appearance would be forbidden for the royal family but it turns out, his brother also sported a beard in 2008.
According to an article in celebuzz.com, Prince William grew a beard during a 2008 Naval training exercise in Barbados, and opted to leave his new look alone for the holidays.
In 1975, Prince Charles did the same after his Naval training took him to Alaska.
What do you think of Prince Harry's new look?
