Because he’s like, so rugged and handsome now.
But in a bold act of defiance that has surely broken all of the Palace/armed forces’ facial-hair rules, Prince Harry has gone and grown himself a beard.
And it looks good.
Before this, his baby-faced, red-haired look was endearing at best.
But now he has a beard and it’s like… what are you even thinking, Harry?
He has successfully transitioned into “rugged and maybe a bit hipster” and I am not even mad.
It also places him in a category that I have helpfully made up that is just bound to take off as a global phenomenon shortly:
Explorer chic is a type of man (or woman, #feminism) who is a bit rough around the edges, but wears the shit out of a suit.
Think Bear Grylls at the Logies.
Or, just think Prince Harry and his glorious, glorious beard.
