Prince Harry is undoubtedly known as the studliest male member of the British royal family, but is he already losing his looks? Not quite -- just his hair.

According to hair transplant surgeon Dr. Asim Shahmalak, Harry's hairline was looking a little sparse during his recent trip to Africa (New York Magazine and The Daily Beast also noticed this). "It is clear that Harry is thinning around the crown area," Dr. Shahmalak told The Daily Express. "It is the first signs of the male pattern baldness which has affected both his brother and his father ... this is hardly a big surprise especially when it runs in the family as it does for the Windsors."

Poor Harry! Hopefully this won't affect his long-standing top slot on international eligible bachelors lists. Dr. Shahmalak explained that Harry should have "a significant bald patch" by the time he's 40 (which is better than Prince William's prospects). The hair loss expert also told the UK newspaper that the 28-year-old's only treatment options are hair transplant, medication or a mousse applied to thinning areas.

Our suggestion, Harry? Just leave it. With your budding romance with Cressida Bonas and your upcoming tour through America, you're probably too busy to fuss over your hair. Plus, you're in good company -- your dad and brother have had pretty good luck with the ladies.

So what do you think: Do the photos of Harry on his African tour show that he's balding?
