Prince Harry’s lookalike cousin named one of the world’s most eligible bachelors

Prince Harry’s first cousin has just been named one of the world’s most eligible bachelors – and he looks a lot like the Duke of Sussex.

Louis Spencer, who carries the title Viscount Althorp, has been included in the list by Tatler magazine – along with a number of other unmarried men from royal families across Europe – as one of the world’s most suitable bachelors.

The list also includes Denmark’s Prince Nikolai, Prince Mateen from Brunei and Prince Constantine Alexios of Greece.

Viscount Althorp is 24 years old and the fourth child and eldest son of Princess Diana's brother Charles Spencer.

Charles' first wife, Victoria Lockwood, is the mother of the aristocrat.

He is Princess Diana’s first nephew and is the first cousin to Prince William and Prince Harry.

The Viscount has kept a relatively low profile over the years but was seen attending the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at Windsor Castle in May last year.

Clearly, good looks run in the family as the older sister of the young aristocrat, Kitty Spencer, is a model for Dolce & Gabbana and Bulgari. 

Louis' aunt, the Princess of Wales, was considered one of the most beautiful women in the world – and was a main source of news for tabloids before and after her death in 1997.

The aristocrat will one day inherit his father’s estate and title – due to British primogeniture law his older sisters, Kitty, Eliza and Amelia will miss out.

He will also inherit the famous Althorp estate where Diana lived from seven years old until she was married to Prince Charles.

It is also the location where Princess Diana is buried.
