Princes Louis and George will probably go bald like their Dad, says hair expert

Royal Princes George and Louis are likely to inherit their father Prince William’s receding hairline, despite their grandfather Michael Middleton still sporting a full head of hair, an expert has claimed.
Hair restoration expert Spencer Stevenson from Spex Hair said the gene for MPB (male pattern baldness) was so strong in William’s family that the young princes were very likely to inherit it.

He said: “The combination of gene pools is always a lottery so it’s impossible to say for sure if the princes will inherit the MPB gene – but one of the most common myths is that a man inherits the genetic propensity for MPB from his mother.
“The reason for this is the primary baldness gene is on the X, or female chromosome, which men do inherit from their mothers. However, the gene for MPB is actually passed down from both sides of the family. It’s certainly present in William and his immediate family.

“Furthermore baldness genes may skip generations, and skip people within the same generation, although this doesn’t seem to be the case with the royal family. It is perfectly possible to have an older brother with enviable full, thick hair, while you are stuck with a Norwood 4 at age 25. This is clearly not the case with William and Harry who both have MPB.

“If most of the men on your mother’s AND your father’s side are bald, then you, your sons and brothers all have an increased propensity to experience MPB.

“The gene is very strong in the royal family and why William and Harry never intervened is a surprise as proven treatments can easily help. Unfortunately, I think its likely the royal princes will inherit the gene as it’s so very strong in the gene pool.

“I hope they are fortunate enough that by the time they are about to show signs of losing their hair, there might be a cure that’s much more readily available.”
