Fact: There's something going on with Prince Harry's facial hair. Namely, it's been getting increasingly scruffy. This weekend, the aspiring lumberjack Prince showed up to the World Rugby Cup to make an announcement, that had absolutely nothing to do with his rapidly growing beard. But we're going to assume that Kate Middleton's facial expressions had everything to do with it.
In a series of pictures, the Princess is caught looking confused, terrified, and overwhelmed by the sight of something. Yes, it could very well be the game of Rugby. But it also could be that as a woman who rarely has a bang out of place, she's really concerned about her brother in law's questionable grooming habits. Kate, we get it. And we're confused too. Has the Prince decided to embrace his name in a more literal sense? Could a man bun be next? The world waits for answers. Until then, we are with you Kate.
The 'what is that on his face?' face.
The 'his scruff is out of control' face. The 'we need to do something about this' face.
