Prince William strikes noble pose on £5 coin to mark turning 40 – but has it been 'heirbrushed' to cover his bald patch?

May 23, 2022

PRINCE William strikes a noble pose on a  £5 coin marking his 40th birthday — but royal watchers say the design craftily covers his bald patch.

The “very flattering” image unveiled ahead of his June 21 milestone makes him look younger than he is, they claim.


Royal author Phil Dampier said: “William will be pleased with this as they’ve given him more hair.

“He looks younger than 40  so he won’t complain. He looks thoughtful but also like he’s looking for inspiration, which he will need in coming decades.”

Created by engraver Thomas T Docherty, the image features the Duke of Cambridge’s signature W and the number 40.

A portrait by Jody Clark of his grandmother the Queen is on the other side.
