James Middleton Debuts Facial Hair (PHOTOS)

Holy goatee, James Middleton has facial hair!

Last time we spied James, he was supporting older sis Pippa at her book launch with a clean-shaven face. But in the past month James has let it grow and is now sporting a rather substantial beard and mustache.

Is the royal sib getting into the Movember spirit (you know, the moustache-growing initiative that raises money for testicular cancer research)? Or is he just looking to change up his clean-cut, Carole Middleton-approved style?

We don't know for sure. What we do know is that if James is aiming for a more rugged look, he might want to rethink the jaunty purple scarf.

Check out Kate and Pippa's little brother. Are you a fan of of the scruff?
