Hot, Young, and Royal

Growing up in the US, I have always been fascinated by royalty. The concept of it seems magical to me. I always tend to associate kings and queens with fairy tales, rather than real life.

My generation seems to be obsessed with the two most famous royals, Will & Harry. While I enjoy Will’s boyish good looks and Harry’s bad boy charm, I must admit I’m rather bored with them. So, I decided to research the other royals. Some I already knew about, others were complete unknowns to me. I had no idea there were so many around my age!

Here are some of the most intriguing young royals I came across:

Prince Carl Philip





You may remember this Swedish dreamboat from my last post. Truly a Disney prince come to life, Carl embodies every aspect a girl is looking for in a man. Not only is he rich and handsome, the 32-year-old prince enjoys racing cars and is quite the talented photographer. Oh, and rumor has it he’s shy. Awwwwww…


Andrea Casiraghi





Another royal hunk is the eldest son of Princess Caroline of Monaco and grandson of Hollywood legend Grace Kelly. Quite the playboy, this devilishly handsome royal enjoys sunbathing in the tropics and partying all over Europe. But don’t take this 26-year-old for just another pretty face. He’s fluent in French, English, and Italian. He is also involved in numerous charities.


Charlotte Casiraghi





Andrea’s 24-year-old sister was also blessed with her grandmother’s iconic beauty, plus her brilliant fashion sense. A friend of designer Stella McCartney and muse to Karl Lagerfeld, the journalist is no stranger to the fashion world. Charlotte is, in fact, using her power to do some good for the fashion community. She is currently the editor-at-large for Above Magazine, which uses fashion as a way of raising awareness of the endangered environment. She also created Ever Manifesto, a free publication on the fashion industry's harmful impact on the global environment.


Sheikh Hamdan





This 28-year-old is the Crown Prince of Dubai and worth an estimated $18 billion. But this stud doesn’t need money to attract the ladies. When he’s not performing his royal duties, the prince enjoys writing romantic poetry and being a competitive equestrian. His other passions include camels, cars, and skydiving.


Princess Madeleine





While her older brother, Carl, tries to shy away from the public eye, this 27-year-old blonde bombshell seems to thrive in it. The King of Sweden’s youngest daughter always manages to make headlines with her glamorous romances and tragic heartbreaks. The bubbly blonde currently resides in New York City. Despite her wild partying, the princess can be noted for her dedication and hard work towards her mother, Queen Silvia’s charitable organization, the World Childhood Foundation.


Sirivannavari Nariratana





Twenty-four-year-old Princess Sirivannavari is the daughter of Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn of Thailand. This beauty has been making international waves recently as an accomplished fashion designer. After showing two seasons during Bangkok's fashion week, she showed a collection during Paris' fashion week in the fall of 2007. She has also been an international badminton competitor, taking home a gold medal in the 2006 Southeast Asian games.


...so, who is your favorite royal?

This is so true Jennifer. The British Royalty seems to eclipse everybody else which is a shame as they are so dysfunctional....

Those two princes from England don't do it for me. Never have. I can't share the rest of the world's fascination.

But those other dudes?

Now THAT is a hot prince.

Kavery said...

Let's put them all on an island and make them fight to the death. We'll call the movie, 'battle royale'.

wow, that joke was so bad, I should be banned from the internet.

I like to think of myself as royalty. hahaha. Kidding. I am a new follower! I look forward to getting to know you through blogging! Feel free to stop by my blog!

Christopher said...

I have to admit I was just skimming this post and rolling my eyes until I saw Charlotte. What a fox. I would love to do unspeakable things to her on a pile of diamonds.

Actually, a pile of diamonds probably wouldn't be too practical, it'd be like sand but more painful.

So, you know, something valuable but softer.

Mimi said...

this is such an interesting post! i think almost every girl dreams of finding her own prince, haha. i think my favorite out of this list is prince carl philip. :)

Dahl said...

This is so funny because right after you wrote about Prince Carl in the last post, I looked up other young royals! Gah none of them seem to be around my age though :( From this pick I definitely like Prince Carl the best, he's so hot and it's really sweet that he's shy! Princess Charlotte seems very cool too. http://thearcenciel.blogspot.com/

Sausage Fingers said...

That bunch makes the two pale brothers seem a bit too - well British.
My favorite royal is still
Crown in a wee glass with ice.
cheers, Sausage...

CessOviedo said...

I'm fascinated by royals too, I must admit that ever since I was a little girl I dreamt of marrying a royal, ok I know not happening, but what's a girl to do, just dream about them, and talking about dreams, Andrea is mine! He's gorge and way cuter than the Windsor bros!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'll follow =)
