Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been pictured on day two of their royal tour of South Africa — and eagle-eyed fans have honed in on Harry’s hair.
During a visit to Auwal Mosque in Cape Town, Harry was pictured sporting an impressive bald spot amidst his ginger locks.
The mosque was built 225 years ago, making it South Africa’s oldest mosque, and the royal couple’s visit coincided with Heritage Day – a public holiday celebrating national culture.
Meghan's own hair was partly covered in an elegant white head scarf, while Harry opted for a pale blue shirt and cream-coloured suit.
In pictures taken from the back, Harry’s ever-growing bald spot was conspicuous.

Balding genes apparently run in the family, with a younger thicker-haired Harry previously teasing his older brother Prince William about his receding hair line.
While the brothers refuse to be self-conscious about a normal part of growing older, royal fans have questioned why Harry doesn’t get treatment or shave it off.
Posting on Twitter, a female fan asked: “Can someone explain to me why Prince Harry and Prince William refuse to do anything about their bald spots??
“They've got literally all the possible resources at their fingertips, I don't get it.”
Stepping into the prince’s defence, a bloke replied: “Even bald men need representation.”
“I think William should do a Dwayne Johnson/VinDiesel hairdo. Just buzz it,” added another.

They have even been known to joke about it themselves.
Prince William quipped shortly after Prince George’s birth that his baby son had “got way more hair than me, thank God”.
Prince Harry noted his hair loss as far back as 2015, when he said he was starting to lose his hair like his dad Prince Charles.
This comes as a poll revealed that men with male pattern baldness rate themselves as better in bed than their hairy counterparts.
