1. Edward Windsor, Lord Downpatrick
To quote Elle Woods, he’s not completely unfortunate looking. Lord Downpatrick is heir apparent to the Earl of St. Andrews, and heir to the Dukedom of Kent after his father. Unfortunately, he took himself out of line for the throne of England by becoming a member of the Roman Catholic Church, but he’s still a third cousin to Prince William and Prince Harry. Trust me, that’s more than enough reason to marry him. Not to mention he stands to inherit between $10-15 million from the dukedom. The only problem is you’ll have to wait until you’re both over-the-hill.
2. Prince Albert, 12th Prince of Thurn and Taxis
This eligible bachelor is a German aristocrat, race car driver, and businessman. Oh, and he’s one of the youngest billionaires in the world. He sports some horrendous muttonchops, is a prince without a country, and your potential mother-in-law looks like Cruella de Vil, but, hey, with that much money you can do a lot of retail therapy to deal with it. Plus, he races Lamborghinis, and that’s attractive no matter what you look like.
3. Prince Harry
Everyone’s favorite spare is quite the catch. If you marry Prince Harry you’re pretty much guaranteed to live the good life. You can enjoy all the fun of the British royal family without any real responsibilities. Currently, Prince Harry is worth about $16 million, but he also has several large inheritances coming from his mother’s estate (which he receives at 30), the Queen’s estate, and from his father, Prince Charles. We can all look past his red hair.
4. Prince Wenzeslaus
Yes, he kind of looks like a jerk, but he’s also kind of wealthy. Wenzeslaus is the nephew of the ruling Prince of Liechtenstein, and is known for dating the Victoria’s Secret Angel, Adriana Lima, thus making him one of the more public princes of Liechtenstein. While he’s not going to be inheriting any thrones, he is a part of the wealthiest royal family in the world and carries around the title of “Prince.” I think this is more than enough to satisfy our fairytale dreams.
5. Princess Tsuguko of Takamado
This princess stays out of the spotlight, but she does have several royal duties that she carries out. She is a cousin of the Emperor of Japan, and isn’t high up the line for the throne (because Japanese law prefers a male heir), but she will be financially provided for her entire life. There’s no report on her net worth currently - the Imperial Family of Japan keeps things hush-hush - but it is Japan. It’s safe to say there’s plenty of cash flow in this princess’s pocket.
6. Prince Philippos
This shy little prince of Denmark and Greece isn’t much of socialite, but he’s still worthy of a spot on our list. He’s rocking a baby face with those chubby cherub cheeks, and sadly isn’t going to be grabbing any thrones. His family was exiled from Greece in 1967, long before Prince Philippos was even born, and has no political power, although his brother is called the Crown Prince of Greece. Even so, Philippos is still a prince by blood and birth so that’s something. We don’t have an exact number on his net worth, but you can bet your bottom dollar it’s hefty since he comes from two royal families, plus he works for Arpad Busson, the king of hedge funds.
7. Princess Beatrice
Princess Beatrice is a cousin of Prince William and Prince Harry, and has become famous for her choice of hat for the royal wedding of William and Kate Middleton. She doesn’t carry out any royal duties and therefore doesn’t receive any royal money, but she’s worth around $5 million right now and stands to inherit some money from her parents and grandparents later in life. She’s not the most beautiful princess in the world, but she is known for being a hell of a good time.
8. Princess Sikhanyiso
Princess Sikhanyiso is the oldest child of His Majesty King Mswati III of Swaziland. This rebel princess has gained quite the international attention for her actions while studying abroad. She tends to ignore Swaziland traditions, likes to wear western style clothing, and has spoken out against the tradition of polygamy in her country’s culture. She is also known for being an accomplished actress and rapper. She currently has about 25 siblings, so the millions her father possesses will have to be spread out, but marrying her anyway is still a solid financial investment. Although, be prepared for some culture shock.
9. Tao Ruspoli
Known best as an Italian-American filmmaker, photographer, and musician, and as Olivia Wilde’s ex-husband, Tao is actually the son of a prince. His father, Prince Allessandro Ruspoli, the 9th Prince of Cerveteri. He’s worth about $4 million, which might seem like child’s play compared to these other royals, but hey, he’s also a whole lot more accessible. His family doesn’t own any thrones, but they have titles and more wealth than the rest of us.
10. Prince Sebastien of Luxembourg
Prince Sebastien is 5th in line to the throne of Luxembourg, but that’s bound to change after his older brothers and sister begin to have more children. No matter, because he’s still a prince and one of the heirs to the second largest royal fortune, reportedly around $4 billion. He’s quite the sporty guy so if you can fake some interest in that then you’re set.
