Prince Willam joked about his receding hairline Tuesday morning as he kicked off a visit to a charity café in Shoreditch.
“I don’t have much hair,” he said to hairdresser Taz Kabria. “I can’t give you much business.”
Prince William was greeting the hairdressers who work next door to the café when he made the quip about his hair.
Jokes about the Prince’s hair aren’t new fodder for the Royal Family. While on their first overseas tour to the United States in 2011, the Duchess of Cambridge joked that they were late to the BAFTA Brits to Watch event because “William had to do his hair.”
The Duke of Cambridge was visiting the Spitalfields Crypt Trust, which is a charity that provides “holistic recovery service to those dealing with complex drug and alcohol addictions, and often homelessness,” per the Royal Family’s website.
The Duke visited two of Spitalfields Crypt Trust’s social enterprises: Paper & Cup, a café and bookshop; and Restoration Station, a vintage furniture and refurbishment shop.
Spitalfields Crypt Trust was founded in 1965. The Trust offers a range of services for support for recovering addicts in areas including mental health, physical health, employment, housing, careers and personal relationships.
The Duke was given three wooden owls – one for Prince George, one for Princess Charlotte, and one for the new baby – when he visited the Restoration Station.
Rhys Pritchard, the manager of Restoration Station, joked that there were three toys so no arguments would ensue. Prince William replied, “Thank you very much, yes we don’t want arguments.”
Prince William also chatted with a midwife during his visit, wishing her all the best and then joking, “I may see you sooner than you think.”
The Duchess of Cambridge recently announced that she was pregnant with her third child and is suffering from severe morning sickness – hyperemesis gravidarum – the same as she had when she was pregnant with both Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
