Runners up for the title include Prince Mateen of Brunei, Prince Carl Phillip of Sweden, Prince Felix of Luxembourg, and Prince William.
It has only been a year since Prince Harry won the title of "World’s Sexiest Dad"—also given to him by PEOPLE magazine. For this title, he beat off a number of celebrities, including swimmer Ryan Lochte, and actors Steven Yeun and Ryan Reynolds. That's quite a lineup to beat! But who is Prince Harry? And how did he become the world's sexiest dad — not to mention the world's sexiest royal?
Prince Harry, 36, younger brother to Prince William, 38, was born in September 1984 in London, England. He had a colorful youth, gaining himself the reputation of being a bit of a wild child, which actually ended up getting him a huge fanbase as people were enamored by the relatable and normal aspects of the youngster. Over the years he matured into a diligent royal. He married actress Meghan Markle, 39, in a ceremony at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle. The power couple captured the heart of the nation, though they've recently moved on to live in the U.S. outside of the royal spotlight.
Other contenders Prince Harry beat are Prince Carl Philip and Abdul Mateen of Brunei. Prince Carl Philip is fourth in line to the Swedish throne and married to former glamour model Sofia Hellqvist. Their wedding took place in the Royal Chapel at the Royal Palace of Stockholm in June 2015. Together they have two children, Prince Alexander, born in April 2016, and Prince Gabriel, born in August 2017. Prince Carl Philip is the second oldest child of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia.
