Meet the UK’s 50 most eligible bachelors of 2019, according to Tatler
Guess I’ll be marrying into money then
The British upper classes have a lot to answer for. But this collection of incredibly eligible men could be the start of those reparations.
Posho mag Tatler have compiled a bumper list of the UK’s 50 most eligible bachelors, full of minor royals, dukes, earls, and sons of musicians
Half of them sound like pubs, but all are a vibe in one way or another.
The full list is in Tatler’s December 2019 issue. Check them out:
50. Aristide Faggionato
Instagram: @aristidefaggionato (private)
A made up name you would give if you were on the run and reserving a posh hotel, but nonetheless, a vibe. Aristide works in private equity but still loves to play polo.
49. Charlie Green
“Widely considered to be one of the best-looking men of his generation”” is what Tatler say and we’ll leave it at that.
48. Lando Norris
He’s a Formula One driver, his dad is worth £200 million, and to top it all off Lando Norris has an absolute baby face. Do you need any more reason?”
47. Arthur Donald
Paul McCartney’s grandson goes to Yale and was rumoured to be dating Reese Witherspoon’s daughter.
46. Josh O’Connor
Josh is playing Prince Charles in the new series of the Crown, and is frankly too arty for his own good.
45. Jamie Redknapp
Ex-footballer Jamie has actually managed to finesse his way into high society. Not just a TV star nowadays, he hangs out with the poshest of the posh at Ascot and at Chelsea clubs.
44. Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne
Sam Bowes-Lyon owns shitloads of land in Scotland and is a descendant of the Queen Mother.
43. Lord Porchester
Not Porchie from The Crown who the Queen definitely doesn’t have an affair with. His family home is literally Downton Abbey.
42. Prince Constantine Alexios of Greece
With a name that’s hard to say without ending “at your service”, this member of the Greek royal family looks a bit like a young Prince Philip, only with floppier hair.
41. Rocco Ritchie
Parents: Madonna and Guy Ritchie. Vibe: Somewhere almost exactly between the two.
40. Lord Fred Wellesley
Tatler say he has a “rippling physique” and you’ll have to take their word for that.
39. Ovie Soko
Oh he is so so eligible and it’s all India’s loss. Just a reminder that he’s six foot seven.
38. Caspar von Bismarck
Yes, von Bismarck as in Bismarck the old German dude, who famously said “politics is the art of the possible”. Is it possible you’ll be linking up with posho documentary maker Caspar?
37. Sam Guinness
Instagram: @sam_guinness (private)
Mop-haired cheese maker with a chiseled jaw. And blessed are the cheese makers.
36. Matthew Freud
Instagram: @matthewfreud (private)
Tatler call him “London’s undisputed king of parties”. He’s 56, but he runs a PR firm and is the great-grandson of Sigmund Freud.
35. Orson Fry
Instagram: @orsonfry (private)
Sings in a band and has perfectly floppy hair.
34. Marquess of Granby
Instagram: @charlesgranby (private)
Newcastle grad Charles Manners, aka the Marquess of Granby, is often seen looking exceptionally posh with sisters Alice and Eliza.
33. The Hon Perry Pearson
An incredibly polo man who looks like a cross between Robert Pattinson and Jack Whitehall. Take our word for it.
32. Tommy Fury
Why’s he on an eligible bachelor list?
31. James Brown
He’s an editor at Tatler, yet couldn’t convince them to put him higher than 31 in the list. Mates with Kate Moss though.
30. Lennon Gallagher
Instagram: @lennongallagher (133k followers, no posts)
Obviously Beatles obsessive Liam Gallagher called his son Lennon.
29. Milo Astaire
Instagram: @miloastaire (private)
Sting was the best man at his Dad’s wedding and young Milo is very Into Art.
28. Cassie Bilton
Cassian’s an Oxford grad AND a Shakespearean actor. It’s a good combo.
27. Lord Downpatrick
To start our trio of not-made-up names, we have Lord Downpatrick and his designer beard.
26. Earl of March and Kinrara
The Earl of March and Kinrarararara loves going to Burning Man and having a ponytail. Charles Henry Gordon-Lennox could be your vibe.
25. Viscount Althorp
Instagram: @louis_spencer94 – not sure if this is real as it literally has “Viscount of Althorp” in the bio, which is obscenely extra
I could have made this up as a generic posh name, but no, he’s real. Spotted at Harry and Meghan’s wedding, Louis Spencer is the Edinburgh grad you really want to snap up.
24. John Boyega
John Boyega, of Star Wars fame, doesn’t drink. There’s a fun fact.
23. Lord Stanley
Apparently this dude is really into horse racing. Like, really. Could pass for a pub, though.
22. The Duke of Westminster
Instagram: @Now now
There is nobody else on the planet under 30 who is richer than Hugh, the Duke of Westminster.
21. Prince Kyril of Bulgaria
Instagram: @Come on
What a name. He’s a 55-year-old divorcee with strong supervillain vibes.
20. Tom Holland
Yes, it’s Spiderman. He is going to age very well.
19. Charles Cooney
One of the best polo players around, with a name to match.
18. Gabriel Jagger
Gabriel is Mick Jagger’s son. Tatler say he’s an “ex-model”, but I’m glad to confirm he’s still fit.
17. Oli Green
Oli Green is a Burberry model who could ruin your life, but you’ll take the chance.
16. Archie Keswick
Tatler describe 39-year-old Archie as “a demon on the tennis court and loves house music”.
15. Alexander Ogilvy
Instagram: @brogilvy (private)
His Instagram is private but his LinkedIn is not, which really tells you all you need to know about the 23-year-old minor royal and his jawline.
14. Rafferty Law
Looks like his dad, Jude Law, but if Jude Law was 23 again and a bit edgy. I repeat, we have a sad boy Jude Law on our hands.
13. The Hon Charlie Cadogan
His dad’s a billionaire, and Charlie got done for speeding to his family’s estate last year.
12. Evgeny Lebedev
Do you like minted Russians who own newspapers? Evgeny’s your guy.
11. Jimmy Fox
Model and great grandson of Sigmund Freud, if you fancy marrying into one of the weirder dynasties.
10. The Duke of Roxburgh
Real name Charles Innes-Ker, he’s got a castle and a £100m fortune. But if you want him to seem relatable, as a Newcastle student he was once caught riding the Metro without a £1 ticket.
9. Matt Healy
Sure, he makes music for people who cry after sex, but Matt Healy is a dreamboat.
8. Umar Kamani
Umar is the CEO and founder of PrettyLittleThing. He’ll probably sort you out with your own discount code.
7. Jofra Archer
Jofra Archer had a big summer – getting called up to the England team and walking out as a world champion after bowling a tense super over. With nerves like that, I’m sure he can handle your bullshit.
6. Paul Henkel
Art dealer Paul graduated from NYU this summer, and his Dad’s a billionaire. He says his favourite ring is “” two crab claws clasping a moonstone”” but don’t let that put you off.
5. Maro Itoje
The 25-year-old SOAS grad didn’t win the Rugby World Cup with England, but he could win your heart.
4. Harry Styles
It’s Harry Styles. Please name a box he doesn’t tick.
3. The Hon Vere Harmsworth
Instagram: @vharmsworth (private)
24 year old Oxford grad and captain of the Eton polo team. I imagine you won’t catch him in a Spoons.
2. Viscount Emlyn
Instagram: Not that we know of
The 21-year-old future Earl of Cawdor, real name James Chester Campbell, models for Holland & Holland. They’re the kind of brand where people comment “I hope that’s real fur” under their pictures on Instagram.
1. Brooklyn Beckham
I mean, he’s David Beckham’s son. He’s currently busy being linked to every single person imaginable, so maybe wait a bit. You know he’ll get better with age.
