Here's the tsar without beard:

And here King George without beard:

I think both looked very handsome without beard, but I agree with you that beards can look more distinguished and I think it was just trendy back then to grow a beard or a mustache. William looks better without it indeed.

Thank you for the pictures. The scary thing is, these two look alike even without a beard. Talk about being a carbon copy.

Wills has a very soft face (expression-sise), so a beard makes him look harsher (and ages him in a rather unflattering manner).

You're more than welcome, Daria! It's true, they looked very much alike. I think it's because their mothers looked so much alike. Only that Alexandra's eyes were bigger, as were George's in comparison to Nicholas.

And I agree, William's face is fine as it is. He just doesn't need a beard.

I personally find Philippe much better looking with a beard than without but it might be just me

After one of his yachting trips, Prince Henry of Battenberg returned with a beard. Albert Victor of Wales did not like Henry's beard. Henry had it removed. However he regrew it. His beard became a fixture.
