Prince William, who met Middleton while in college, is only 28-years-old, which is why it surprised many people considering that he was losing his hair at such a young age. However, it seems that the trait runs in his family. William’s father, Prince Charles, and his grandfather, Prince Philip, were known for having receding hairlines and bald spots. His brother, Prince Harry, two-years-younger, however still appears to have a full head of hair.
