At least once in our fashionable lives, we dreamed of being a princess—partly because of the stylish gowns and corsets we could be wearing, the castle or palace we would be living in, the classic literature and dance lessons we would be required to learn, and of course, the prince charming who’d be waiting at the end of the aisle during our splendid royal wedding.
This long-forgotten fantasy sparked hope in us once more when then-commoner Kate Middleton married Prince William in 2012 and when Swedish reality television star Sofia Hellqvist tied the knot with Prince Carl Philip just last year.
So here, we made a list to remind you that your childhood fairytale dreams could still come true. Meet five of the most eligible royal bachelors below.
1. Prince Harry, Wales
One of the well-known and currently visible monarchs internationally, His Royal Highness Henry would definitely be on the top of our list. Women all over the world fell in love with the fun-loving party prince during his brother’s wedding. And just recently, he had to adorably turn down a marriage proposal from a six-year-old girl named Lottie.
2. Prince Sébastien, Luxembourg
If you're into sports, then Prince Sebastian, fifth in line to the throne, is the one destined for you. Also known as the "Prince of Nassau," his hobbies include playing tennis, climbing, skiing, and various water sports. He also has an eye for art.
3. Prince Albert, Thurn und Taxis
Also sports-inclined, Germany’s very own Prince Albert is a race car driver in the European circuit.
