Prince Harry Debuts a Full-On Beard in Africa, Induces Swooning Around the World

STOP EVERYTHING: Prince Harry has a beard!

Yep, the sizzling spare to the heir—who's been busy touring Africa, meeting with charities that are determined to save the earth—visited the crew at the African Conservation Experience's Khulula Care for Wild, based in Nelspruit, on Wednesday, Aug. 12. And he did so sporting some seriously sexy scruff.

Making a surprise visit, Prince Harry, 30, dropped into the specialist care facility—the largest center dedicated to caring for orphaned rhinos in South Africa—to meet the endangered animals and their caretakers. He spent several hours speaking and touring with volunteers (while accompanied by baby rhino, Warren!); plus, he participated in a feeding round, all while modeling his ginger whiskers.

Surely, the royal has rocked a bit of stubble in the past (to great effect, we might add). But typically, the uncle to Prince George and Princess Charlotte sports a clean-shaven face—as he did at June's Royal Ascot—so this look is a bit of a treat, especially for the facial hair lovers out there.
