Now that Prince Harry's off the market, here are the world's 8 most eligible royal bachelors
Wedding bells have been tolling across the globe since Monday, when it was confirmed that Prince Harry had finally proposed to US actress Meghan Markle. And as anyone who lived through the joyous union of Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011 will attest to, not only will the frenzy refuse to die down anytime soon, it won't be limited to just England either.
Certainly, such effluvia has kept the prince and the Suits star in the headlines for the past few months, and this is only set to increase as we get more and more snippets of information. Yes, prepare yourself for an onslaught of news stories regarding what particular shade of white Meghan's dress will be, and what their future children will look like.
But whilst this is a decidedly happy time, the women (and men) of the world also have a loss to mourn: that of England's most eligible royal bachelor. Despite being overjoyed for the couple, many of us experienced feelings of heartbreak when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle became official in the highest sense of the world.
However, there's no need for too much concern as there are still a number of eligible royals out there. Let's take a gander, shall we?
1. Crown Prince Hussein of Jordan
The 23-year-old royal is certainly impressive. Not only did he become the youngest person to ever chair a UN security council session, at the age of 20 in 2015, but he also graduated from Georgetown University the following year, with a degree in International History. And you could also say that he's pretty easy on the eye...
2. Crown Prince Hamdan of Dubai
The 35-year-old is a published poet and is into anything adventurous, such as hiking, diving, cycling, and zip lining.
3. Prince Philippos of Greece and Denmark
The 31-year-old prince also graduated from Georgetown University, and he now spends his days managing hedge funds in New York.
4. Prince Constantine-Alexios of Greece and Denmark
While he may be the youngest on the list at 19, "Tino" sure has a lot of potential. He's just started at Georgetown University and his godfather is none other than Prince William. Here's hoping he follows in those footsteps...
5. King Kgosi Leruo Molotlegi, Royal Bafokeng Nation, South Africa
The 46-year-old King, who was appointed in 2000, is a fixed wing and rotorcraft pilot. However, he's also got bigger plans at work, he recently set a goal to make the Royal Bafokeng Nation self-sufficient within the next 30 years. And he purportedly works 18 hours a day trying to realise his vision, which may explain why he hasn't been able to pin down a royal bride as of yet.
6. Prince Albert of Thurn and Taxis
Now, this one sure is a catch. The 34-year-old lives in a castle, loves beer, racing cars, and oh yeah, he's been on the annual Forbes billionaire list not once, but twice.
7. Prince Joachim of Belgium
Despite keeping a very low profile, we do know a few things about the 25-year-old. He has studied in both Milan and England, where he received degrees in international economics, management and finance. And he is currently an officer in the Belgian Navy.
8. Prince Mateen of Brunei
The 26-year-old is sixth in line to the throne, and his family is estimated to be worth $20 billion (sounds nice, right?). He studied in London where he graduated with a Master of Arts in International Studies and Diplomacy. And according to his social media platforms, he is a talented equestrian and quite the foodie.
Well, there you have it. Now, if you're single, you better get yourself to some fancy schmoozing events, stat. You never know, you may end up running into Prince Joachim or one of his other well-connected friends.
