Harry Who? Denmark's Prince Nikolai Is a Professional Model
Sure, everyone around the globe may be busy fawning over Meghan Markle and Prince Harry this spring thanks to their upcoming nuptials, but it’s key to remember that there are more than a few awesome royals worth your time and attention. Take, as a prime example, Nikolai William Alexander Frederik, the prince of Denmark.
The 18-year-old royal recently signed on with Scoop Models, an agency out of his home country, and appeared in his very first fashion show during London Fashion Week. There, he walked in the Burberry show alongside supermodel Cara Delevingne.
According to the Independent, the young prince, who is sixth in line for the throne and is the eldest son of Prince Joachim and Alexandra, Countess of Frederiksborg, has his parents' blessing to pursue his new career. His father, Prince Joachim, told Danish news site Billedbladet that Nikolai “should not be forced into something. Nikolai’s future shall be conducted entirely by his own plan.”
And really, just taking one look at Nikolai’s photos proves that this kid has what it takes to make it in the world of high fashion.
The prince may want to go all in on his new career, as according to Billedbladet, he will likely never receive “any land, money, or title from Margrethe and Henrik, though his parents will support him through his education.”
If he’s looking for advice on how to maximize his royal fashion exposure perhaps he can ask Lady Amelia Windsor for advice. The 22-year-old, who is a distant cousin of Prince William and Prince Harry, has long been a fashion darling and a regular on the catwalks around the globe. Just days ago, she too hit fashion week, this time as a guest at Valentino’s Paris Fashion Week show.
