Harry and Meghan, Time 100: Sunrise host Natalie Barr jokes about prince’s hairline

Sunrise host Natalie Barr says what we’re all thinking about Prince Harry’s hairline… after he sported very thick locks on the cover of Time 100


Sunrise host Natalie Barr couldn’t resist joking about Prince Harry’s ‘airbrushed’ appearance on the cover of Time’s Most Influential People issue on Tuesday.

The TV presenter, 53, mentioned the cover after the Cash Cow drew attention to a similarly airbrushed promo photo in Seven’s Martin Place headquarters.

Natalie quipped that the same person who enhanced Harry’s receding hairline for his Time 100 cover had given her fill-in co-anchor Matt Doran a thicker head of hair.

The moment happened when the Cash Cow was taking selfies in front of a poster of Matt and his Weekend Sunrise co-host Monique Wright.

Matt’s hair appeared slightly thicker than usual and was parted on the wrong side, prompting Natalie to suggest it had been flipped using Photoshop.

‘I demand airbrushing like that,’ she said. ‘It takes at least half a year off you!’

She then noticed something odd about the image, saying: ‘Hang on, does the hair sweep the other way? It does!’

‘Have they flipped it like a wig?’ asked a stunned Matt.

Natalie then said: ‘I think you used the same airbrusher as Prince Harry on the front cover of Time [magazine].’

She even speculated the Seven graphics team had superimposed Weekend Sunrise weatherman James Tobin’s hair onto Matt’s head.

Not impressed: The Time 100 cover featuring Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has been ruthlessly mocked on social media for its excessive use of Photoshop and awkward positioning

The Time 100 cover featuring Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has been ruthlessly mocked on social media for its excessive use of Photoshop. 

Many fans also ridiculed the awkward positioning of the photo as the Duke of Sussex appeared to be hiding behind his wife as he clutched her shoulders.

Others joked that he looked like the Duchess’ hairdresser as he proudly stood behind her and she presented her voluminous hair.

But much of the commentary focused on Harry’s locks, which appeared thicker than usual – perhaps due to some generous Photoshopping.

Harry, 37, comes from a family of balding men, including his brother, Prince William, and father, Prince Charles, and has shown signs of male-pattern baldness himself.

But unlike his relatives, the LA-based royal has reportedly taken steps to reverse the issue by visiting a London hair-loss clinic in late 2019.

He is said to have undergone hair-thickening treatment at the prestigious Philip Kingsley Trichological Clinic, according to The Sun on Sunday.

The treatment has seen an improvement in the length and thickness of his hair.
