We love Prince William and Kate Middleton, worship Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and bow down to the crown: Queen Elizabeth II. But there’s a new royal in town that’s caught our eye. We’re talking about Prince Nikolai of Denmark. As Cosmopolitan so kindly pointed out, he looks quite a bit like Timothée Chalamet. We also get Benedict Cumberbatch vibes with a hint of Adam Driver, too. Oh, how we love it when real royalty resembles Hollywood royalty.
Prince Nikolai is the oldest grandchild of Queen Margrethe II of Denmark and Prince Henrik. He turned 20 on August 28th and is officially our new royal obsession. The prince is seventh in line for the Danish throne and has quite a regal official name: His Highness Prince Nikolai of Denmark, Count of Monpezat.
Oh, and did we mention that Prince Nikolai is a model?
He made his catwalk debut at 2018 London Fashion Week during the Burberry Prorsum fall-winter 2018 fashion show. He’s also modeled for fashion houses like Dior. But the royal doesn’t plan on making a career out of modeling. Instead, he has his sights set on business and plans to attend Copenhagen Business School.
“I do not want a career as a model. I’d rather look at it as a job, which can help me along the way while educating me,” Prince Nikolai told Danish magazine Tæt på, Hola reports.
Yep, Prince Nikolai has the beauty and the brains. If you’re going to fall for a royal, we’d put him at the top of the list.
