Did Vanity Fair Photoshop Prince William's Bald Spot?

Prince William and his family are on the cover of the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair, but if you look close, you'll notice that Prince William's bald spot seems to have vanished, leaving many questioning whether or not the magazine did a little photoshopping. 

I can't say for sure, but if you compare his cover portrait to other photos, you will notice his hair does appear a little thicker. 

I've discussed Prince William's hair loss in the past on this site, at 32, he has advanced male pattern hair loss for his age - in fact, he's a Norwood Class III-vertex, progressing quickly toward IV and beyond. In my opinion, it would be best to start a multi-therapy approach immediately that combines finasteride (Propecia), minoxidil (Rogaine) and Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT). Non-invasive FDA-approved therapies can start reversing the miniaturization of the hair follicles immediately. Because hair growth rates are slow, the results will take 3-9 months to become appreciated. A microsurgical FUE hair transplant with NeoGraft (the "Cadillac of hair transplants") would also do wonders for him. 

The good news is, if Prince William decides he likes the look of a fuller head of hair, there are many options available today to restore his lost follicles.
