All the buff young British royals you need to know about

So many of them are at uni


At Harry and Megs’ wedding, it wasn’t the design of Meghan Markle’s dress, Princess Charlotte’s sass wave or what Amal Clooney was wearing that stole the show. No, it was two relatively unknown royals, two brothers who were essentially nobodies to the general public: Arthur and Sam Chatto.

And how wrong we were to call them nobodies – they’re Princess Margaret’s grandchildren!! And if everyone had a Tatler subscription, we’d know about them and all the other young British royals out there living quite literally amongst us like normal people.

Many of the young flock are at uni, and if they’ve already graduated they’re most likely modelling or marrying equally rich people.

These are the hot young British royals you need to know about:
