Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Prince William's bald spot just cannot catch a break. Kate's picked on it before, now it's Vanity Fair that has a problem with the royal pate.

The royal family covered the magazine's August edition with a shot taken during their three-week Australian tour back in April. Getty had the original image of the family in their archives, and upon comparison it is undeniable that Vanity Fair has photoshopped a little more hair onto that head. Le scandal!

For closer inspection:

Yep, Vanity Fair is definitely guilty as charged.
