Royals are known for a lot of things — their poise, their excellent fashion sense, their etiquette. But their air of nobility tends to hide something else about them — they can be total dreamy, of course. But as age takes it's toll and those royal portraits show it's wear, we tend to forget just how dashing those of noble breeding were when they were young. And sure, the whole ruling-a-country thing probably helped.
If you dig through the archives you can definitely see it. Though heavily wrinkled now, Queen Elizabeth II's beloved husband Prince Philip who gave up his naval career for her (so dreamy!) was quite the looker back in the day. And you definitely can see that in Elizabeth's youngest son Prince Edward, too. And hey, that's just the United Kingdom! So treat yourself to these flashback photos of princes and kings from various royal families that prove they were all quite handsome in their heyday.
