The flame-haired prince grew facial hair during his 200-mile expedition in Antarctica for the Walking for the Wounded South Pole Allied Challenge 2013 which he is yet to shave.
Harry’s grandmother isn’t a fan of his new look and prefers him to be “clean-shaven” now that he’s returned home.
A source told the Sunday Express newspaper: “The Queen soon let her displeasure be known. She doesn’t mind royal men growing beards when they are away in the Armed Forces or out in the wilds like Harry was in the Antarctic, but she expects them to be clean-shaven when they get home.
“Royal staff are not supposed to grow beards or moustaches and she probably thinks it is difficult to enforce that rule when her own grandson has a beard.”
While Harry “will probably shave it off soon” he wants to show his girlfriend Cressida Bonas his new look first and see what the blonde beauty thinks of it.
The source added: “Harry doesn’t like to upset the Queen and will probably shave it off soon but he is still a bit of a rebel and he wasn’t going to remove it straight away.
“He wanted to show it off to Cressida first and see what she thought of it.”
