You too could have a Meghan Markle fairytale

Prince Harry's royal wedding is officially over and there won't be another British royal wedding for quite some time now, as Prince George is way too young to start thinking about that. Fortunately, there are plenty of other countries with plenty of other princes that are still eligible bachelors at the moment. Lucky for you, I did my research and compiled a list of all the eligible princes you need to know about know that Prince Harry has tied the knot with Meghan Markle.

1. Prince Louis of Luxembourg (31)

Prince Louis is the third son of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg. He has recently become a bachelor again after his separation with his wife of 10 years, Princess Tessy.

Fun Fact: He graduated from Richmond, The American International University of London with a BA in Communications. He can also speak Luxembourgish (the fact that's even a language is fun fact by itself), French, German, and English fluently.

2. Prince Sebastien of Luxembourg (26)

Prince Sebastien is the youngest child of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg, so if you marry him, you'll probably never actually be queen because he's pretty far removed from the throne. However, he's relatively young and single, so best of luck.

Fun Fact: For some bizarre reason, this prince actually went to college in Ohio. He played rugby and graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville in 2015. Now, he is back in his home country and is an officer in the Luxembourg Army.

3. Prince Phillipos of Greece and Denmark (34)

You read that correctly, Prince Phillipos is the prince of not one, but two countries. He is the youngest son of King Constantine and Queen Anne Marie of Greece and Denmark. Unfortunately, Greece abolished their monarchy, so he's a prince in name only there.

Fun Fact: Like Prince Sebastien, Prince Phillipos also went to college in the United States. He earned his B.A. in foreign relations from Georgetown University in 2008. Fortunately, for us American girls, he is actually still living in the US and he works in New York City as an analyst at Ortelius Capital.

4. Prince Albert of Thurn and Taxis (34)

Ever heard of Thurn and Taxis? No? Me neither. Anyways, Prince Albert is from the House of Thurn and Taxis, which is essentially a very old German aristocratic family. He is the son of Prince Johannes XI of Thurn and Taxis and Countess Gloria of Schonburg Glauchau. His family is well known for their breweries and castles, so unless you're gluten-free, you can't really complain.

Fun Fact: He's not just a prince. He's also a racecar driver and 10 years ago he was ranked 11th on Forbes Magazine's List of The 20 Hottest Young Royals.

5. Prince Mateen of Brunei (26)

Prince Mateen is basically like all the guys you already know, except he's royalty. He's the prince of Brunei, which is a small country on the island of Borneo, south of Vietnam. He is one of the five sons of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, and he also has seven sisters. Maybe that's a little different than the guys you know, but one thing he takes very seriously, just like most frat guys, is his Instagram.

Fun Fact: Mateen enjoys playing polo, flying in his private plane, cuddling cute wild animals, and keeping up his Insta game with 890k followers. You can follow him @tmski.

6. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum of Dubai (35)

Sheikh Hamdan also has a killer Instagram with 6.3 million followers. Anyways, Sheikh Hamdan is the billionaire crown prince of Dubai and the second son of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who is the prime minister of the United Arab Emirates and essentially the king of Dubai (Emir). He's actually next in line for the throne because his older brother died in 2015.

Fun Fact: Hamdan's hobbies include skydiving, zip lining, and diving, just to name a few, so if you're an adrenaline junkie, Sheikh Hamdan is the prince for you.

7. Prince Hussein of Jordan (23)

Prince Hussain is the son of the extremely beautiful, Queen Rania and Abdullah II of Jordan and next in line for the Jordanian throne. At 23, he's already a second lieutenant in the Jordanian Armed Forces and he was the youngest person ever to chair a UN Security Council Meeting


Fun Fact: Like Prince Phillippos, Prince Hussain also graduated from Georgetown University in Washington D.C.. Also, like Prince Mateen and Prince Hamdan, he's Insta famous with 1.3 million followers and you can follow him @alhusseinjo.

8. Prince Constantine-Alexios of Greece and Denmark (19)

Like Prince Phillipos, Prince Constantine-Alexios also has two countries. Lucky for us though, he is also living in the US right now attending Georgetown University in Washington D.C. (like pretty much every other prince, amirite?) He is the oldest son of Crown Princess Marie-Chantal and Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece.

Fun Fact: He's Prince William's godson, so that's pretty neat. However, if that wasn't cool enough, you might like to know that this Greek/Danish prince was actually born in New York. Oh yeah, you can also follow him on Instagram @alexiosgreece where he has 88.7k followers.

9. Prince Joachim of Belgium (26)

Prince Joachim of Belgium, Archduke of Austria-Este is the third child of Lorenz, Archduke of Austria-Este and Princess Astrid of Belgium. Although he bears the title, "Prince of Belgium," he is also Archduke of Austria-Este, Prince Royal of Hungary and Bohemia, and Prince of Modena. Unfortunately, he'll probably never actually be king in any of these countries as he is ninth in line to the Belgian throne.

Fun Fact: Prince Joachim has degrees in economics, management, and finance, but he decided to join the Nautical School in Brugge after completing college and is currently an officer in the Belgian Navy.

Hope is not lost for all you girls dreaming of finding a Prince Charming that's literally a prince. After reviewing the data, my best advice is to transfer to Georgetown where princes are basically around every corner.

6 Things You'll Hear If You're Moving From California To The East Coast

Moving from California to Pennsylvania comes with many not-so helpful opinions.
16
views

A couple of months ago I announced my decision to attend Villanova University. It has been my dream school since my Freshman year. All my friends and family were ecstatic for me, and I am so grateful for their support. That being said, being born in small, southern California town, everybody and their mother seems to have comments about what my new living situation will entail. With graduation being last weekend, the main topic of conversation between myself and an adult is my move to the east coast to attend Villanova. While most of what is said are well-meaning, there are some comments that lose their charm after the 10,00th time you hear them.

1. "You don't understand cold yet."

I am aware that being from California, I have not experienced an East Coast winter, however, the only way I'll understand is when I actually experience it next winter. So for now, please stop reminding me to buy a jacket- I know.

2. “Won't you miss the beach?"

California is infamous for many reasons, one of the reasons being our sunny, beautiful beaches. Again, I know that there are no beaches in Pennsylvania but remember, I chose to trade the beach for snow, so that I could attend my dream school.

3. All that air travel will be a hassle."

Honestly, I'm sure it will. However, the most annoying part about flying is arriving to and navigating the airports. A flight is a flight whether I am flying one state over or across the country. I know it will be tiring. That's what Starbucks is for.

4. “The time zones are different."

The East Coast is 3 hours ahead of my time zone. While this may be a bit tricky to navigate at first, I don't anticipate too much trouble beyond the first few weeks. Also, as a college student, I don't think I will be up too early to call back home most times. Plus nowadays, with texting and social media, I can always message first to see if it is a good time to call.

5. “You're not used to the snow"

Similarly to #1, most everyone I talk to always points out the fact that there will be snow. In my opinion, the best way to learn how to survive in the snow is to live in it! I won't be bringing my car and with on-campus housing, in addition to uber and licensed friends, getting around in the snow will be okay. I'm sure my excitement over the snow will melt away within the first week or so of it snowing, but as for now, I am so excited to be able to experience a different climate. Also, the chance to see NYC in the snow, decorated for Christmas Time? Yes, Please!

6. “You'll miss California/You'll get Homesick."

I agree. I'm sure I will miss California and there will be days where I'm alone and all I want to do is come home. I would like to hope, however, that most of my time will be spent making friends, making memories, and making good marks. Missing home is a natural, healthy part of maturation and would likely happen whether I was across the country or even living just four hours away. I am very close with my family and as much as we'll miss each other, our bond will never break as they give me the freedom and courage in myself I need to succeed.

You mean well and you're worried about me. I understand that and I appreciate it, honestly, I do. When you say that I don't know what I'm getting myself into, you are right. That is all the more reason for me to do it! Just know that the best, and sometimes the only way to learn and grow is through experiences, and these are experiences that while intimidating, I could not be more excited or grateful to have. I'm sure there will be many great days and a few hard ones, but I'll learn, I'll grow, and I'll be better for it.
