Yesterday, the Duke of Cambridge debuted a whole new hairdo while performing royal duties at Evelina London Children’s Hospital.

And the 35-year-old’s buzzcut may not come as a surprise to some, after years of bald jokes from the royal who has never failed to crack a smile over his premature hair loss.

But the nation was shocked to learn the price of his latest trim.

According to reports, the 35-year-old was treated to the haircut by stylist Joey Wheeler after seeking advice on his thinning locks from the Duchess of Cambridge‘s hairdresser, Richard Ward.

The royal cut took place in the comfort of Kensington Palace and the new aesthetic set Prince William back a cool £180.

And Twitter users took to the social media platform to express their disbelief:

But Prince William has succumbed to endless jokes about his receding hairline over the years so it was only a matter of time until he would finally take the plunge and opt for a more clean-shaven look.

Let’s be honest, who can forget Kate Middleton’s joke on the 2014 royal tour of Australia?

When shown a bundle of alpaca wool (which just so happened to be a similar hue to her husband’s hair), she pointed to Prince William’s head and joked: “You need it more than me.”
