I really don't like the new looks in Belgium and Spain. It really makes Prince Philippe look old (although maybe that's what he wanted), and the Bourbons just look scruffy. The only recent royal besides Michael of Kent that looked good in the beard is Prince Harry.

Growing beards

What's happening in the royal world? A lot of royal beards are growing!
All we know the beards of Prince Michael of Kent, Prince Haakon of Norway, Prince Amedeo of Savoy; but in the last two months I've seen growing the beards of Prince Philippe of Belgium, yesterday of King Juan Carlos of Spain and today of Lord Frederick Windsor!
What's happening?

I asked myself the same question as I saw Lord Frederick today. It can not only be lost bets or accidents. Maybe its trendy again to grow a beard, but it surely doesn't suit every man.

Oh, and Prince Felipe of Spain also has a beard at the moment.

When I was looking at the photos of CP Felipe of Spain from National Day this week, I decided that I really dont like his beard. Its graying, and makes him look so much older that he is. I prefer him clean shaven.

Classic vs. Modern beards & Royalty

In my opinion, if a royal is to wear a beard, it should be done with grandeur, not with short, wimpy trimmers.

Case in point: George V (and his cousin, Czar Nicholas)

Prince Haakon looks handsome with a beard.

The Royal Prince's beard

I was looking through the photos of the Royal Princes adsome of them look really good and some well don't.

I think Prince Philippe of Belgium and Prince Haakon of Norway do were as Prince Frederick of Denmark and Prince Filipe don't.

What's your opinon?

How did this beard thing get started anyway, did haakon ring up Fred and say lets all grow beards to she how good we look..

They must have a "beard pact" that they grow one altogether...

I actually prefer Prince William & Crown Prince Haakon with beards. They look more handsome

Here are 2 pictures of Crown Prince Frederik with a beard.

I would say Prince frederik suits a beard, Felipe also. But the best beard is Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume of Luxembourg. He looks much better bearded.

There are no words to describe how much hotter Haakon is with that beard. Frederick of Denmark also looked good with his.

I also like Haakon much more with the beard. Frederik not so much and William definitely not

I'm not a fan of beards/any sort of facial hair on men. I will say though, that some can come off looking more distinguished with a beard, but those are few and far between. I've never seen George V or Nikolai II without their beards, so I'm used to those images, however, Prince William should leave the bearded look to his predecessors, because he looks rather unkempt when sporting one.

I might be in the minority, but I think Haakon looked as good without a beard as he does now, maybe even better. He has a beautiful face, without a beard rather boyish or even feminine and I think he grew a beard to appear more manly. The only royal man who looks far better with beard is Prince Michael, IMO. But I don't care much for beards anyway.
