Prince Harry may have gone a step too far in his attempt to embrace the Los Angeles lifestyle, according to actor Rob Lowe, who claims the 36-year-old now wears a ponytail.
Rob, 56, made the wild claim during an interview with James Corden on The Late Late Show, in which he revealed he spotted a man he believed to be Harry driving around their Montecito neighborhood. with a long hairstyle.
