If the rumours of Prince Harry’s impending engagement to Meghan Markle have you feeling like your dreams of being a royal spouse won’t pan out, don’t fret. There are plenty of single (and very attractive) royals still left to be wooed and wed. Here are our picks of the most eligible royal bachelors and bachelorettes around the world.
13Prince Philippos of Greece and Denmark
Born to King Constantine II of Greece and Queen Anne-Marie of Denmark, Prince Philippos is a prince twice over. Although, as the monarchy in Greece was abolished, Philippos is a prince is name only. The 30-year-old Prince is very private and shuns the spotlight, preferring to live an ordinary life. He works as a hedge fund analyst in New York and has been spotted a few times on the streets.
12Lady Amelia Windsor
Last year, Lady Amelia Windsor attracted international attention when Tatler named her the most beautiful royal in the English monarch. The 21-year-old is certainly gorgeous and cherishes a love for fashion that we can emphasise with. As the youngest daughter of the Queen’s cousin, The Duke of Kent, Lady Amelia is 36th in line for the throne.
11Prince Wenzeslaus of Liechtenstein
Also known as ‘Vince the Prince’, this royal has quite a playboy reputation, which was probably earned during his years of dating Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima. The 42-year-old is second in line for the throne of Liechtenstein, one of the wealthiest monarchies in Europe.
9Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana of Thailand
More commonly known as the Royal Granddaughter of Thailand, Sirivannavari is both very fashionable and sporty. The 30-year-old won a gold medal for Thailand in badminton at the 23rd South Eastern Asian Games. She is also a famous face in fashion circles, having presented a show for Pierre Balmain.

In 2015, Prince Hussein was the youngest person ever to chair a UN Security Council meeting and was praised by UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon.
7Princess Theodora of Greece and Denmark
Prince Philippos’ sister is much less low-key than he is and instead loves the spotlight. The 33-year-old Princess is an actress who has appeared in shows like The Bold and the Beautiful. She studied at Brown University, so she’s got beauty and brains!
