Birmingham Mint has released a commemorative medal for William and Kate’s wedding, which apparently shows the Prince with a full head of hair.

However, it seems unlikely that the 28-year-old will sport the full head of hair that he does on this medal designed to commemorate his marriage.

Despite his relative youth, William has already inherited his father’s receding hairline and marked bald patch – something which his younger brother often teases him about, reports the Daily Mail.

According to the Independent Mint, an artist drew inspiration from several images to create a likeness they believe is “very accurate”.

The image was based on a picture approved by William and the Queen, but Kate looked older and plumper in the face than her true self.

The official Royal Mint coins to commemorate the union were met with bemusement in December, with critics arguing the couple were barely recognisable.

The mint hopes to sell more than 100,000. Shoppers can buy them for 5 pounds when they go on sale on Wednesday.
