Rob Lowe is poking fun at
‘Can we talk about William? The future king of your country let himself lose his hair!’ the 55-year-old actor joked.
‘Honestly, one of the great traumatic experiences of my life was watching Prince William lose his hair. He’s going to be the f***ing king of England!’ he exclaimed in an interview with the Daily Telegraph.
Rob Lowe, 55, believes that British men have a ‘low bar’ for vanity, and Prince William’s hair loss is his prime example. The Duke of Cambridge pictured right in May 2019
Glory days: ‘Honestly, one of the great traumatic experiences of my life was watching Prince William lose his hair. He’s going to be the f***ing king of England!’ Lowe said. The smiling Prince pictured above in 2005 with a full head of hair
When asked if he considered himself less or more vain than British men Loew said, ‘British men set a low bar’, while reflecting on his latest role in the ITV drama Wild Bill, where he plays an American cop policing the English town of Lincolnshire.
Then he went in on the Duke of Cambridge.
‘And there’s a pill! The first glimmer that a single hair of mine was going to fall out, I was having that stuff mainlined into my veins. And that’s what I did for the next 30 years,’ Loew said, citing his personal effort to keep his healthy mane.

In his younger days, William was known for his lush hair and charming good looks.
But with age, his long locks have gone and his hairline has receded. His hair started to wisp around 2009 and 2010, around the same time he and Kate Middleton got engaged.
By 2016 the top of his hair was gone and in 2018 he rocked a bold shaved head look.
Despite Lowe’s critiques, the Prince has always appeared unfazed his baldness and hasn’t seemed to pursue a hair regrowth solution.
