Heir to the British throne, Prince William has denied rumours that he has started wearing a hairpiece after being spotted making a covert visit to the house of Start Trek legend William Shatner last week. Shatner assumed the mantle of the US's most prominent expert on hairpieces following the death of actor Charlton Heston earlier this year.
In recent years, Prince William has begun to show signs of hereditary hair-loss, and until recently did little to cover it up. However, eyebrows were raised when he was spotted making a secret visit to the Los Angeles home of actor William Shatner in mid-May. A spokesperson for the Prince suggested the visit was merely to discuss Shatner's views on leadership in light of his famous role as Captain James T. Kirk of the starsip Enterprise. However, since that visit, Prince William's hair has noticeably changed, with many wondering whether Mr Shatner has personally given the future king of England the hairpiece he wore in the 1960s during the run of the original Star Trek series. Photographic experts have suggested a stunning similarity between the hairstyles of the two men - something both Buckingham Palace and Shatner have refused to comment on.
