Don't get me wrong, we're super excited that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle officially tied the knot. But it does rather quash my tiny but powerful daydreams about, you know, running into Harry at a polo match, making him fall in love with me, and before you know it, I'm the Queen of England! Sorry, what was I saying?

Honestly, I'm so happy for the blissed-out couple. But for all the rest of us hoping for a royally romantic end to the daily grind, Harry's engagement means that the pool of eligible royal men has dwindled somewhat. Plus, it was never very big to begin with. Prince Amedeo of Belgium? Taken. Prince Carl Philip, Duke of Värmland? Off the market. Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark? Long wedded. What about Adriana Lima's ex, Prince Wenzeslaus of Liechtenstein? Unavailable, I'm afraid.

Who's left? Here are five princes who'll fit nicely into your personal rom-com.

1. Crown Prince Hussein bin Abdullah of Jordan


The 23-year-old son of King Abdullah (also pictured here) and Queen Rania isn't just royalty—he's also an Instagram star with no fewer than 1.1 million followers. Prince Hussein posts snaps of himself with pals like Angela Merkel or indulging in football. You know, casual. As his father's heir apparent, he's likely to be king one day.

2. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum of Dubai

Stay tuned for the second part of our cave diving experience!

A post shared by Fazza (@faz3) on

I spoke too soon about Instagram stars—Dubai's Crown Prince, also known as Fazza, has a cool 5.9 million followers monitor his every move on the social media platform. He may be an accomplished horseman with several competition titles to his name, but the 35-year-old is also into falconry, cave diving, cycling, and poetry. It's an eclectic combination that appeals to many, judging from the plethora of fan sites out there.

3. Prince Sébastien of Luxembourg

Or should I say His Royal Highness Prince Sébastien Henri Marie Guillaume, Prince of Luxembourg, Prince of Nassau and of Bourbon-Parma? But I'm sure he'll let you use just one or two names once you get to know him. Here he is with his sister, Princess Alexandra. The 25-year-old is an officer of the Luxembourg Army and, as the youngest of five siblings, probably won't ever be the king. Which is great! Leaves plenty more time for his rather active hobbies of climbing, skiing, swimming, and rugby. 

4. Prince Jean Christophe Napoléon Bonaparte

Yes, Napoléon Bonaparte. Or, at least, a descendant thereof: The 31-year-old, pictured here with his father Prince Charles Bonaparte, is the great-great-great-great-nephew of his famous namesake. Those among you who paid attention in high-school history might know that the French monarchy was abolished in the late 18th century, but some in the French nation recognize Jean as a member of what's called the Imperial House based on his lineage. Also, not something Napoléon himself probably envisioned for his scions, but Jean has a LinkedIn page—as does every self-respecting private equity professional.

5. Prince Joachim of Belgium

This prince isn't likely to sit on his country's throne either; his cousin, Princess Elisabeth, is the eldest daughter of Belgium's King Philippe and is first in the line of succession. Rather, this seafaring royal has taken his place in the Belgian Navy—which makes sense, since he's a wandering Sagittarian. (He was educated in England and Italy, naturally.)
