Hair expert studies Prince Harry’s ‘crown’ to answer James Hewitt dad rumours

Don’t miss a thing by getting the Daily Star’s biggest headlines straight to your inbox!

The bizarre claim that Princess Diana’s former lover James Hewitt is Prince Harry’s real dad is as persistent ever, but the myth has actually already been debunked.

The very locks that sparked the theory in the first place may actually prove they are not father and son, the Daily Star previously reported.

We enlisted an expert in hair loss to study Harry’s fading crown and compare it with that of James Hewitt, the cavalry officer who admitted to having an affair with the Princess of Wales while she was still married to Charles.

The rumour that he may be Harry's real father began recirculating after son Archie, his first child with wife Meghan Markle, was revealed to be ginger.

The gossip, which has dogged Harry ever since his childhood, had been endlessly fuelled by the single fact he and Hewitt share the same hair colour.

Yet the Daily Star previously revealed how Harry, who turns 37 on Wednesday, actually gets his locks from a member of Diana’s family.

We also revealed jaw-dropping pictures that proved Charles is definitely Harry’s dad – with the snaps looking set to finally silence conspiracy theorists.

And we repeatedly stated how Diana did not meet army captain Hewitt until after Harry was even born.

In 2019 Spencer Stevenson, founder of hair loss advisers Spex Hair, studied Harry and Hewitt’s fading crowns and came up with a conclusion.

He told Daily Star Online that Harry and Hewitt have completely different hair loss patterns – with Harry’s locks fading from the top, and Hewitt from the front.

Spencer told how Harry could already be bald within the next two years as his fading hair speeds up, while Hewitt – at 63 – still has a pretty much full head of hair.

He said: “Harry’s hair loss pattern and James Hewitt is a very different pattern of loss.

“Harry certainly follows his brother William and Prince Charles’s patterns, whereby a sign of early MPB (Male Pattern Baldness) commenced in the crown region and from there moved forward while an overall diffuse thinning has (also) occurred all at once.

“This is a classic and aggressive pattern of loss. It’s safe to say Harry has copied the immediate royals in his family and not James Hewitt’s minor loss.”

The finding that Harry’s hair loss follows Wills and Charles’ should finally put an end to the nonsense theory that Hewitt is his dad.

But with Archie sporting reddish hair, it’s likely this will only fuel the wild claim by conspiracy theorists for many more years to come.

It remains unknown if Harry's daughter Lilibet, who was born in June, is also a redhead as the couple have yet to share any photos of her with the public.
