This is how real modern princesses live
They are not fairytale characters — they are simple modern girls who live, love, and laugh. Their only differences from everyone else are their heritage and the number of invitations they receive to go to balls.
Bright Side would like you to meet the true princesses — those who retain this title even in their everyday lives.
Princess Alexandra of Luxembourg
The 24-year-old beauty and the only daughter of Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, Alexandra adores sports, speaks five languages freely, and even participated in the Wimbledon tournament. She has the longest full name of all European princesses: Alexandra Josephine Teresa Charlotte Marie Wilhelmine. However, despite her truly royal name, she is just fifth in line to the throne.
Lady Amelia Windsor, UK
Lady Amelia is only 20, yet she is already the first beauty of England. She is a great-great-granddaughter of King George V and the younger daughter of George Windsor, Earl of St. Andrews. In the future, the young lady is planning to become a journalist, and she is deeply into her studies. This, however, doesn’t prevent her from frequently attending balls and social events. Lady Windsor has become the first person of royal blood to appear on the cover of Tatler. Her real passion is fashion, and she even had an internship at Maison de Chanel.
Princess Luisa Maria of Belgium
The daughter of Princess Astrid of Belgium and Lorenz, Arch-Duke of Austria-Este, is 21 years old. The beautiful lady is now receiving her education in the UK. She is only ninth in the line of inheritance, but her gorgeous looks and the fortune of her parents make her one of the most sought-after brides in the world.
Princess Iman of Jordan
Princess Iman bint Abdullah is the eldest daughter of King Abdullah II and Queen Rania of Jordan. She is 20 years old, and she’s currently studying at the University of Georgetown, Washington, USA. Her strict upbringing doesn’t allow the lady to appear in public often, but she sometimes accompanies her royal mother during charity events.
Princess Charlotte of Monaco
The 29-year-old Charlotte Casiraghi is a granddaughter of Hollywood star Grace Kelly, from whom she inherited her stunning looks. The princess graduated from Sorbonne and has even worked in Above, a well-known London magazine. She has a son, but the heart of this beautiful lady is free at the moment. She is fourth in line to the throne of Monaco.
Princess Mako, Japan
Princess Mako of Akishino is the eldest granddaughter of the current Emperor of Japan, Akihito. She is 24 years old, has successfully graduated from the International Christian University in Tokyo, and studied in Austria. While still a schoolgirl, she became an Internet star and one of the anime culture symbols thanks to her pictures in her striped school uniform.
Princess Maria-Olympia of Greece and Denmark
The monarchy in Greece has been officially abolished, but grandchildren and great-grandchildren of the last king still hold their titles. The family of the princess lives in England, where Maria-Olympia leads an active social life. The 20-year-old beauty studies graphic design and art history in New York and has an internship in Dior Fashion House. The royal lady regularly updates her Instagram where she has more than 80,000 followers.
Princess Gabriella of Austria
Gabriella Maria Pilar Yolande Joséphine Charlotte is the youngest child in the large family of Archduke Carl Christian and Archduchess Marie-Astrid of Austria. The princess is 22 years old, and she is a great-granddaughter of the last emperor of her country, Charles I. Today there’s no monarchy in Austria, but all the royal family titles have been retained.
Princess Pauline of Monaco
Pauline Grace Maguy Ducruet is a daughter of Princess Stephanie of Monaco and her former bodyguard Daniel Ducruet. She is 22 years old, and she is a professional rhythmic gymnast and diver. The princess is a circus fan and actively participates in the annual International Circus Festival. She’s only fourteenth in the line of inheritance, but that doesn’t seem to bother her much.
Infanta Leonor, Princess of Asturias, Spain
The parents of the little princess are the Spanish monarchs. Infanta Leonor, Princess of Asturias, is the young daughter of King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain. Leonor is 12 years old, and she, like any other girl of her age, goes to school and accompanies her parents during official events as a possible heir to the throne. Even now it is clear that in the future this little lady will break many a man’s heart.
