Prince Harry's Single Cousin Is Your Best Shot at Becoming the Next Meghan Markle (Video)
Now that Prince Harry is off the market, it’s time to start thinking about your other future royal husband options. If you’re looking for a prince, or future king, there are plenty of eligible bachelors around the world. But if you’re still hoping to land a British royal, don’t worry, there’s at least one guy left.
On Saturday morning, all eyes were on Meghan Markle, the beautiful bride walking down the aisle to marry Prince Harry, but by Saturday afternoon all anyone could talk about was Harry’s extremely handsome cousin, Louis Spencer. Let’s break down everything you need to know about everyone’s new dream royal, so, you know, you're prepared just in case you get set up on a blind date.
What’s his royal title?
Louis Frederick John Spencer, Viscount Althorp.
How old is he?
The Viscount is 24 years old.
Who is he related to?
Louis is the nephew of Princess Diana and first cousin to Prince William and Prince Harry. His father is Diana’s brother, Charles Spencer, the ninth Earl Spencer. As PopSugar noted, that likely means Louis will eventually inherit the title of earl as well.
Is he single?
Nobody is sure. However, he's definitely not married, and we do know that he came to the wedding with his mother and sisters — and no date.
But is there heavy competition?
There could be. In fact, you may have to compete with Nicki Minaj for his attention. In 2015 the singer posted an Instagram snap alongside Louis that said, “check out our wedding photo.”
Will he ever become king?
No, that would be extraordinarily unlikely, however he will likely inherit his father's title one day, along with the family’s castle, which comes with 90 rooms and was built in 1508. Not bad.
So what would my royal title be if I married him?
You’d become a countess, which sounds pretty cool to us.
Is there anyone else I can daydream about as a backup?
Yes, of course! May we suggest James Middleton, Kate and Pippa’s brother? While he may not be a royal, the 31-year-old is still super cute, super single, and worthy of everyone’s attention.
