Princess Iman of Jordan


The Princess’ elder brother, Prince Hussein bin Abdullah, made our previous list of hot young royals but this Queen Rania lookalike deserves her own recognition. She goes to Georgetown University in Washington D.C. and in the past has displayed her athleticism and was awarded the top athlete in her class when she graduated from the International Academy in Amman.

Princess Alexandra of Luxembourg

The only daughter of the Grand Duchess and Grand Duke of Luxembourg is now fifth in line to the Luxembourg throne after her elder brother, Prince Louis, gave up his succession rights. The young princess is fluent in four languages and loves to explore different cultures.

The mechanical engineering graduate from Stanford is making a name for himself outside of his royal roots. He’s immersed himself in the tech industry and in 2009 even worked as head of user operations for Facebook Arab. Since then, he’s founded the NA3AM or the New Arab Media, and has committed himself to creating opportunities for education and employment.

Noor Pahlavi of Iran

Noor is still considered a member of the royal family even if Iran did away with the monarchy in 1979. Born in Washington D.C., the eldest child of Reza Pahlavi has established herself in New York as a director of fundraising and investor relations at a commercial real estate firm. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Georgetown University before settling in Manhattan. Today she is recognized as a fashion icon who stands for cruelty-free fashion.

Born after Princess Alexandra, 25-year-old Prince Sebastian takes his place as sixth in line to the Luxembourg throne. This athletic prince goes climbing, skiing, swimming, and plays rugby when he’s not undergoing training at the Sandhurst Academy in the United Kingdom—coincidentally where Jordan’s Crown Prince Hussein also goes to school.

Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis

Elisabeth hails from the former German princely House of Thurn und Taxis. As the editor-at-large of Vogue magazine, she’s come to be known as Elisabeth TNT. One could easily spot the stylish royal seated in the front row during Fashion Week.
