One is not amused by Prince Harry's bushy ginger beard.

Queen Elizabeth has given her grandson a royal command to shave off the beard he grew while on an expedition to the South Pole last month, telling him she "intensely dislikes" facial hair, the Express reported.

A royal insider told the Express the Queen does not mind royal men growing facial hair when they are away in the Armed Forces or out in the wild like Harry was, but she expects them to be clean-shaven when they get home.

Prince Harry still had his Antarctic whiskers at the Christmas service at Sandringham, when he claimed he was keeping it as a new royal tradition.

But it was unlikely the Prince will defy his grandmother who expects him to remove the beard "sooner rather than later", the royal insider said.

"Harry doesn't like to upset the Queen and will probably shave it off soon but he is still a bit of a rebel and he wasn't going to remove it straight away.

"He wanted to show it off to [girlfriend] Cressida first and see what she thought of it."
