James Middleton's Beard

What is the general consensus on James Middleton's beard? Whenever I see a picture of him, I feel like he looks like King George V, the great-great grandfather of his brother-in-law Prince William. Actually, he looks not only like King George V, but King George's first cousin Czar Nicholas II of Russia! Look below:

I don't know about the beard but he looks really out of it in both of those pics.

I don't know who he is, but those images really cry out for some Monty Pythonesque animation.

That's the brother of Kate Middleton (a.k.a. the wife of Prince William and future Queen of England).

Never heard of him. I'm familiar with Charles Middleton's beard, though.

I don't know and I don't care. Why would anyone care about some guy's beard?

Re: James Middleton's Beard

I'm currently in a "beards are hot" phase however that is fail. Not because of the beard but because of the thick and creepy mustache, need to trim that thing. BUT I am LOL over the comparisons with the Czar and George! Really the guy would fit quite well into any historical movie, he has the face.

Is that some sort of snide comment alluding to how so many members of the royal family look like a bunch of inbred hillbillies from West Virginia?

No it's a comment on how unamerican the dude looks.

Americans evolved into square headed wide faced people who clearly don't belong in historical dramas.

That's why we had to get Daniel Day-Lewis to Abe Lincoln.

Yeah, he would look better if the mustache weren't so big. But, tbh I prefer the clean shave look on most guys!

Re: James Middleton's Beard

My "beards are hot" phase was triggered by crushing on a singer who sports a very excellent beard and then seeing Ryan Robbins looking older and bearded in Continuum, he kind of blew me away with his hotness. I think though when you notice the mustache in a beard mustache combo something must be wrong.
