The Queen’s Order to Prince Harry: Off With the Beard! (VIDEOS)

The Queen of England wants the men in her life to be clean shaven; thus, she required her hirsute grandson - a looker whether bearded or not - to shave his facial hair, British dailies reported on Tuesday.
Quoting a royal source, the Express said that Queen Elizabeth actually does not mind if the male members of her family sport mustaches or beards while they are in the Armed Forces or away from the castle. However, once home, they have to comply with the reigning monarch's standard lest they hear the command: "Off with his beard!"
Prince Harry, who had previously displeased his blue-blooded grandmum when tabloids splashed his photos butt naked while playing strip poker with Las Vegas women, grew his beard while on an expedition to the South Pole in December.
The royal leak said the prince kept his facial hair after he returned from South Pole to show his new look and get the reaction of his girlfriend, Cressida Bonas.
However, the Queen saw the beard ahead of her future granddaughter-in-law and gave a royal thumbs down.
Prince Harry was seen walking to church on Christmas Day with his ginger scruff and even told well-wishers growing a beard at some point is a tradition in the royal family. He said his granddad Prince Philip, dad Prince Charles, uncle Prince Andrew and older brother Prince William did it too.
But woman power is stronger in the British royal family for now since the ruler is still the Queen, so no royal tradition could withstand her highness's aversion to facial hair.
