Are you a little sad that Prince Harry is off the market and you now have to give up those fantasies of becoming a princess. Well Elle Australia wrote an article that details 5 princes that are still eligible, so dry those tears, take notes and move over Princess Mary, as you could be the next Aussie princess.
Crown Prince Hussein Bin Abdullah of Jordan
The 23-year-old son of King Abdullah (also pictured here) and Queen Rania isn’t just royalty—he’s also an Instagram star with no fewer than 1.2 million followers. Prince Hussein posts snaps of himself with pals like Angela Merkel or indulging in “football”—a.k.a soccer. You know, casual. As his father’s heir apparent, he’s likely to be king one day—not that that’s a reason to find someone interesting. At all.
Wait a minute, wait a minute. I spoke too soon about Instagram stars—Dubai’s Crown Prince, also known as Fazza, has a cool5.9 million followers peeping his every move on the social media platform. He may be an accomplished horseman with several competition titles to his name, but the 35-year-old is also into falconry, cave diving, cycling, and—OMG—poetry. It’s an eclectic combination that appeals to many, judging from the plethora of fan sites out there.
Or should I say His Royal Highness Prince Sébastien Henri Marie Guillaume, Prince of Luxembourg, Prince of Nassau and of Bourbon-Parma (delicious!)? But I’m sure he’ll let you use just one or two names once you get to know him. Here he is with his sister, Princess Alexandra.
The 25-year-old is an officer of the Luxembourg Army and, as the youngest of five siblings, probably won’t ever be the king. Which is great! Leaves plenty more time for his rather active hobbies of climbing, skiing, swimming, and rugby. If you’re worried about not being able to locate his home country—one of the world’s smallest—on a map, don’t worry too much: Sébastien “enjoys discovering new cultures,” and I’m sure he’ll cut you some slack if you just show you’re making an effort, you know?
Yes, literally Napoléon Bonaparte! Or, at least, a descendant thereof: The 31-year-old, pictured here with his father Prince Charles Bonaparte, is the great-great-great-great-nephew of his famous namesake. Those among you who paid attention in high-school history might know that the French monarchy was abolished in the late 18th century, but some in the French nation recognise Jean as a member of what’s called the Imperial House based on his lineage.
So he’s basically, like, an emperor. Also, not something Napoléon himself probably envisioned for his scions, but Jean has a LinkedIn page—as does every self-respecting private equity professional! Do you have any mutual connections? Why not send His Imperial Highness an InMail?
This prince isn’t likely to sit on his country’s throne either; his cousin, Princess Elisabeth, is the eldest daughter of Belgium’s King Philippe and is first in the line of succession. Rather, this seafaring royal has taken his place in the Belgian Navy—which makes sense, since he’s a wandering Sagittarian. (He was educated in England and Italy, naturally.) So if you end up next to him at a state dinner some enchanted evening, keep it nautical! Aren’t Octopi just fascinating?
