On strictly last night, Prince Harry appeared on a video link to his army pal JJ Chalmers,
Harry,s hair and beard definitely looked darker , has he been to the drug store to buy Nice n Easy Dk Brown I wonder !,,

I noticed Harry's hair appeared to be a different colour and there seemed to be more growth too.

Good grief, on Strictly

I wouldn't be surprised, according to a red headed friend who married an American, the Americans generally look down on people with red hair.
This seems weird to me, if its true.

Lilypops Sun 15-Nov-20 08:48:32

Anniebach. It was to wish JJ good luck in his dancing ( I think). !,

Can’t anyone leave Harry alone ?

Ellianne Sun 15-Nov-20 08:51:02

Nevermind his hair, I thought he looked and sounded really happy and upbeat talking to his old army mate. Like in the good days.

Lilypops Sun 15-Nov-20 08:57:36

Bluebells. Just an observation. , not a criticism about Harry,
He did sound and look happy , He must be missing his old army pals,

Lilypops Sun 15-Nov-20 08:58:29

Sorry BlueBelle , typo.

maybe something to do with NTSC?

Lilypops Sun 15-Nov-20 09:02:47

Infoman what,s NTSC please , ?

NotSpaghetti Sun 15-Nov-20 09:22:42

Infoman, do you mean a technical TV colour issue?
I don't get it.... please explain.

Ellianne, yes, I thought so too. Looked quite chirpy. Was nice to hear (but what was he doing on strictly?). And yes, Lilypops he did look more brown-haired, I noticed it too.

Ellianne Sun 15-Nov-20 09:28:42

I think it is common on Strictly for every contestant to get messages from home or from celebrity friends Notspaghetti. The Eastenders girl got half the cast supporting her last night!
Harry's friend is at the bottom of the leader board this week after the judging. Depending on the public vote he could be in the dance of tonight.

From Wiki

"NTSC, named after the National Television System Committee, is the analog television color system that was introduced in North America in 1954 and stayed in use until digital conversion. It was one of three major analog color television standards, the others being PAL and SECAM.. All the countries using NTSC are currently in the process of conversion, or have already converted to the ATSC"

If that means anything to you, not sure it does to me! grin

It's not the first time I've noticed Harry's hair colour changing. He definitely looked more auburn when he and M flew back from Canada to go to the Canadian Embassy at the beginning of the year.

He is also losing his hair so I suspect he's using something to cover it up - spray-on fibres or something.

I thought he looked fuller in the face last night too, but maybe that was because he was actually smiling and not walking on eggshells, afraid to say the wrong thing and upset madam.

The army was the making of him in my opinion, and I'm sure he must be missing the camaraderie.

I have noticed that most zooms/podcasts (or similar) pictures coming from Harry and Meghan look a bit fuzzy which might account for the change, although ginger hair does tend to fade normally as one gets older. However it was nice to see him laughing and so animated.

Or perhaps he is happier now he has left the royal family, who can say.

Ellianne Sun 15-Nov-20 09:52:27

Yes, maybe Galaxy.

merlotgran Sun 15-Nov-20 09:54:39

He looked more like his old self.

Ellianne Sun 15-Nov-20 09:58:22

On reflection aren't we missing a point here? He spoke enthusiastically and reasonably articulately because he was on his own and talking about his passion for Invictus Games. It is only when he is with Meghan that he stumbles with his words and looks dejected or uninterested.
Interesting body language, but I'm no expert.

Mapleleaf Sun 15-Nov-20 10:00:34

So, he might be dying his hair? So what - plenty do 😁.
He's growing his beard? It's the fashion at the moment for many. Let him be.

EllanVannin Sun 15-Nov-20 10:19:49

I had to look twice, then thought I wonder if he's missing old ground as homesickness is horrible, if you're that way inclined.

NotSpaghetti Sun 15-Nov-20 10:25:29

Well Ellianne I suppose you are right. He's a celebrity now like all the others.
I have to admit I don't like the celebrity messages stuff on Strictly at all normally...

Was still nice to find him more chirpy.

Ellianne Sun 15-Nov-20 10:25:36

Do you think America is a particularly difficult country for Harry to feel at home in? Maybe they should have gone somewhere where both of them were on an equal footing and finding their way together. Like Africa?

merlotgran Sun 15-Nov-20 10:26:46

What's more concerning is the fact that he and Meghan signed a mega deal with Netflix who have done a hatchet job on his mother.

The Crown is back tonight. It is bound to upset the RF.

Harry won't be able to protest intrusion this time.
