Prince Harry may have an unexpected new hairstyle, according to Rob Lowe.
The actor revealed it during a performance The Late Late Show With James Corden that he thought he was getting a glimpse of his new royal neighbor driving in their Montecito neighborhood.
“I just ran into your countryman, the English treasure, Prince Harry, at the stoplight 10 minutes ago,” Lowe told the host. “He lives about a mile from me. He’s been very backward. Seeing him in the neighborhood is like seeing the Loch Ness monster, and I finally saw him. I finally saw him drive his car.”
Lowe continued that he “might have a scoop” on the Duke of Sussex.
“It was very, very fast – do not quote me completely – but it looked like he had a ponytail on,” said the actor. “I’m just saying. It seemed to me like a casual observer that his hair had grown very long and was pulled back very close by what I can only assume was a ponytail.”

Corden seemed skeptical of the gossip about style. “I’m sure that’s not true,” said the host. “Do you know what I think happened? I do not think you saw Prince Harry.”
“Oh no, it was him because I have to say – I followed him to the house to see if the car went in,” Lowe admitted with a laugh.

If Prince Harry, 36, is actually experimenting with longer locks, he already knows how to control such a style. In fact, Harry Meghan, 39, helped fix her ponytail when she put on a necklace during their visit to Morocco in February 2019.

Meghan was born and raised in Los Angeles, and she and Prince Harry moved with their 1-year-old son Archie to California in March to start their new life after leaving their roles as senior members of the royal family.
In the summer, they bought their new home in Montecito, about 100 miles north of LA. The nine-bedroom mansion, purchased for a reported $ 14 million, is the family home of three “permanent homes,” a source has previously told PEOPLE.
“They both love California, and Santa Barbara has a magic to it – the mountains, the oceans, the vineyards, the flowers, the garden,” said a source close to the couple. “It’s so beautiful.”
