Wearing just board shorts at a Jamaican beach on March 6 during a loved-up getaway with girlfriend Meghan Markle, Prince Harry’s chest was as super smooth as his swimming skills.
The new-look rig is reportedly the result of waxing, which The Sun newspaper in London says is a recent development since the once-ruggedly hairy Harry, 32, started dating Suits star Meghan, 35.
Friends are said to be teasing him that he’s gone “all LA” now that he has a TV star love.
“Harry’s been seen as a ‘man’s man’ all his adult life, so this has come as shock to his close friends,” said a source. “They all think his new grooming methods are to down to his desire to look his shiny best for Meghan.”
Added the friend, “His chest is now like something you’d see from guys in ‘Baywatch’—but without the tan.”
Harry and Meghan bunkered down last week in a luxe private villa in Montego Bay, where she was his plus-one at the wedding of an old school friend.
The pair held hands outside the church and Meghan was openly affectionate, draping her arms around Harry’s neck in front of guests at the reception. His gift to her was an attempt to moonwalk to Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean but he reportedly crashed into a waitress during the dance.
“Harry and Meghan seem very much in love,” a source told WHO.
Pastor Conrad Thomas, who presided at the wedding, said the prince “was so protective of her and he was by her side at all times. I will never forget their radiant smiles, and they looked so happy together.”
Happy enough to make it official? Buzz is the pair will be engaged soon, with British bookies having marriage news for Harry at shorter odds than a British Eurovision Song Contest win.
