Prince Harry may be off the market, but the royal family isn't out of attractive bachelors just yet. Princess Margaret's grandson made headlines earlier this year, for posting shirtless photos on Instagram, and now, Princess Alexandra's grandson, a blonde Brown University student is turning heads.

Here's what you need to know about Alexander Ogilvy:

HE'S IN LINE TO THE THRONE, BUT HE'S WAY DOWN THE LIST.

Alexander is the son of James and Julia Ogilvy, and the grandson of Queen Elizabeth's cousin, Princess Alexandra of Kent, making Alex and the Queen first cousins twice-removed. While he is not a working royal, and is not often seen at royal events, he does appear on the Buckingham Palace balcony most every year at Trooping the Colour, a military parade which serves the British monarch's official birthday celebration. In a photo from this year's Trooping, he can be seen on the far right side, near the Earl of Andrews and the Duke of Gloucester. (For a photo outlining everyone who was on the balcony, click here.)

HIS INSTAGRAM HANDLE IS "@BROGILVY." YES, REALLY.

Sadly, the account is private. But you can still see his description, which currently features a British flag emoji, and a delightful link to photos of corgis wearing rain jackets. It's worth a click.

His sister Flora's account, on the other hand, is currently public, and on occasion she shares photos of her brother, like this one taken earlier this month:

HE CURRENTLY ATTENDS BROWN UNIVERSITY.

According to his LinkedIn page, Ogilvy is currently a Computer Science and Economics major. In addition to his studies, he's also the captain of the rugby team. Royal connections aside, he seems like a real catch.
