Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the handsomest Prince Charming of them all? According to a poll conducted by Crown Clinic, the most handsome royal in the world is Kate Middleton’s brother-in-law, Prince Harry of Great Britain. So, where is Prince William on this elite list of princely men? And which other reigning royals round out this princely top ten?
Crown Clinic, a hair transplant center in Manchester England recently polled 1,000 women asking who they thought was the most handsome nobleman in the world. While there are some members of the British royalty, to be expected as this poll takes place in Great Britain, most of the list includes royals from all over Europe and even from the Middle East!
The number one on the list is Prince Harry. Prince’s Diana’s youngest son has become the most eligible bachelor and now the hottest male royal. The prince, who just turned 32 a few days ago, just spent the summer in Africa on an elephant conservation project. Considered “jobless” by the Daily Beast, he recently paid a visit to an HIV hospital that his mother, the late Princess Diana had visited many times before. Always thinking of her, People reported that he always strives to “make my mother incredibly proud.” Having lost his mother at the tender age of 12, there is no doubt that this painful loss is with him at all times.
“I know I’ve got a lot of my mother in me. All I want to do is make my mother incredibly proud…. I will have to, in a good way, spend the rest of my life trying to fill that void as much as possible. And so will William.”
This revelation may have endeared all women to Princess to Harry.
The second name on the list is Prince Carl Philip of Sweden, fourth in line to the Swedish throne. His wife, Princess Sofia, was a former reality star and model. The match was quite controversial for quite some time until Sofia toned down her wild image and eventually won the Swedish press and people.
The third name on the list is Andrea Casiraghi from Monaco. Grandson of the late American movie star and Princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly, and son of Princess Caroline, Casiraghi is fourth in line to the throne and married to the heiress Tatiana Santo Domingo.
The fourth name on the list is Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum, the first in line in Dubai. Still single, the prince also writes poetry under the name Fazza. How charming is that?
The fifth name on the list is Prince Felix of Luxembourg. Married to German scientist Claire Lademacher, this prince speaks seven different languages.
The sixth name on the list is Prince Wenzeslaus of Liechtenstein. He is known well to anyone reading the gossip columns as formerly dating Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima.
The seventh name on the list is King Felipe VI of Spain. He is the world’s third youngest reigning monarch.
The eighth name on the list is Prince Amedeo of Belgium, sixth in line to the throne.
The ninth name on the list is Prince William. Perhaps he is lower on this list because of his lack of eligibility? The Inquisir recently reported that Prince William and his wife Princess Catherine are reported to want a third child soon. For now, a formal family trip to Canada is planned for later this month. This will be the first time both children accompany their parents on an international trip.
The tenth name on the list is Peter Philips, Queen Elizabeth’s oldest grandchild, brother to Olympian Zara and the first cousin of William and Harry. Son of the hardest working royal, Princess Anne, also known as the “Princess Royale,” Peter is 13th in line for the monarchy. Because his mother was female royalty, neither Peter nor Zara holds a royal title. Their father, Mark Philips was entitled to a title, but declined. Like his sister and mother, Peter is an avid sportsman and has worked in the business of sports.
This is a varied list of hot male royals. But what propels Harry to the top? One observation made by Crown Clinic hair transplant surgeon Asim Shahmalak suggests it is about Prince Harry’s hair color.
“The other fun finding from the poll is that it was won by a ginger-haired man. You don’t find many Hollywood leading men who are redheads but Harry shows that it is a very attractive hair color.”
Perhaps his red hair propelled him way ahead of older brother William? Or could it also be, as Shahmalak suggests, his recent beard?
“I think Harry’s whole look has been enhanced by his recent beard which really suits him.”
Who do you think is the hottest male royal in all of the lands?
