Beard or no beard? Do these royal men look better with OR without facial hair?

It's a tough call

Alice Howarth

It's a question as old as time - are men more attractive with facial hair or without? Some will argue it depends on the individual, their cheekbones, their style etc and others swear hands down that beards are good on any male. Well, one group of men, who just happen to make up some of the most famous men in the world, have experimented with both looks and when it comes to yay or nay for facial hair - it's hard to decide.  

Now during Movember, a month when men grow their beards for charity in order to raise awareness of men's health issues, of course it's universally acknowledge that all hair growth is good but what about the rest of the year? Should it stay or should it go? It's time to play beard or no beard, the royal edition…
