LONDON (AP) — The hair on the heir is no longer quite so apparent.

Prince William, whose hairline has been receding for years, has opted for a dramatic close-shaved new hairstyle.

The buzz cut was captured by photographers as 35-year-old William, who is second in line to the British throne behind his father Prince Charles, visited a London children's hospital on Thursday.

British bookmakers are looking to profit from William's hair loss. They are now taking bets on what style he will sport at younger brother Prince Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle on May 19 at Windsor Castle.

Harry has teased William for years about his thinning hair.

Bookie William Hill is offering 1-2 odds on the current closely cropped style, 6-4 on a totally shaved head and 6-1 on a hair transplant.
