Prince William visited a children's hospital in London Thursday, where the royal's new look caught some attention.
William, 35, showed up with an almost-shaved head, a move many proclaimed was a sign he's embracing going bald.
Will appeared without wife Kate, who is currently pregnant with their third child. Due in April, Prince George and Princess Charlotte are just a few short months from welcoming a new sibling to the family.
Of course, royals watchers being an attentive and opinionated bunch took to social media to comment on Will's new look.
Some fans are shook...

Looking at the pictures of Prince William today I have to say that it’s really shocking to realize how bald he has become. I wonder if he’s going to be the first ever bald King in history....— Simone (@sisuperstar) January 18, 2018

Of course, everyone has suggestions...
Message to Prince William please you need to shave your hair off completely and grow a goatee beard it will look much better— MARCELLO MARINO (@MARCELLOMARINO) January 18, 2018
Prince William should just shave his head... then try out for the next Bond villain. Shit play himself as the next Bond villain. That would be interest to say the least.— Mr. Shifty Eyes (@KingPajamas) January 18, 2018
But in the end, it's important to keep things in perspective...

Unlike Prince William, I have all my hair. But he still has all the rest of all the things going for him. So, advantage Prince William. https://t.co/IeDESJCpLN— Mark Wright (@jmarkwrite) January 18, 2018
