Seven prince charmings of the 21st century
We often speak about queens and princes as something outdated and odd for the modern world. However, the monarchy still exists in some countries, meaning that even modern girls can dream about marrying a prince. The Bright Side team proposes you get acquainted with some of them right now and find out how it feels to be the heir to the throne these days.
Prince of Wales
Prince Harry is perhaps one of the most famous heirs to the throne in the modern world. This red-haired bachelor makes millions of women around the world sigh and lick their lips. Prince Harry, who is a British Army Air Corps Captain, made a documentary about the plight of orphans in Africa and broke the world record for the largest foreign currency trade (all the money was donated to charity, of course). But even the rich and famous sometimes cry and make mistakes; he left school with a D in geography, was involved in several alcohol scandals and experienced unhappy love affairs. Chelsea Davy refused Harry's proposal saying "this life is not for me." Well, princes are also people like everyone else.
Prince of Brunei
Al-Muhtadee Billah Bolkiah is not a man of the world and does not like much attention. The only exception to that is his luxurious wedding to Sarah, an ordinary student. The photos of the ceremony have been viewed by millions of people throughout the world. Unlike many other princes of so-called royal blood, Al-Muhtadee holds high political office; after graduating from Oxford University he became a Senior Minister of the Prime Minister's Office of Brunei. His favorite hobbies are playing pool and collecting sports cars. And when Al-Muhtadee becomes Sultan of Brunei, this palace furnished in gold and marble will be his residence.
Prince of Sweden
His Royal Highness, Prince Carl Philip, lives a quiet, measured life with his wife Princess Sofia. Prince Carl Philip has a keen interest in motor sports and art photography. He participated in the creation of several films for National Geographic and ran the longest marathon track of 90 km. Sofia, before becoming a princess, worked as a model, yoga instructor and even a waitress. Now the couple is expecting their first baby.

Andrea Casiraghi, Prince of Monaco, is proud of the fact that he has read more than one thousand books and can't stand paparazzi — it even came to blows a few times. He married his Colombian bride Tatiana six months after the birth of their son. Andrea is a family man who loves his kid and his wife.
Prince of Jordan
Prince Hussein Bin Abdulllah leads a very active life. Despite being only 21 years old, he studies at the university, helps his royal father and finds time for his hobbies — playing football and riding bikes — as well. The prince of Jordan also pays much attention to charity.
Prince of Denmark
Danish Prince Frederik studied at Harvard University, participated in a polar expedition and served in Hussar regiment. He met his future wife, an Australian girl named Mary, during the Sydney Olympics. Now the couple has 4 children.
Prince of Dubai
Being often compared to Disney's Aladdin character, Sheikh of Dubai is called the most eligible bachelor of the planet. Apart from being very rich, Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum has also an excellent education and interesting hobbies; he writes poetry and loves extreme sports. With all this, he somehow manages to be an active Instagram user — his account has earned more than five million followers so far.
