Queen Elizabeth asks Prince Harry to shave

09 January 2014, 16:08

London - Britain's Queen Elizabeth reportedly asked Prince Harry to shave off his beard.

The flame-haired prince grew facial hair during his 208-mile expedition in Antarctica for the Walking for the Wounded South Pole Allied Challenge 2013, but his grandmother isn't said to be a fan of his new look and prefers him to be "clean-shaven".

A source told the Sunday Express newspaper: "The Queen soon let her displeasure be known. She doesn't mind royal men growing beards when they are away in the Armed Forces or out in the wilds like Harry was in the Antarctic, but she expects them to be clean-shaven when they get home.

"Royal staff are not supposed to grow beards or moustaches and she probably thinks it is difficult to enforce that rule when her own grandson has a beard."
