E! Royal Special

It appears like the channel E! (American channel) will have an upcoming program "Forbes 20 Royals" I saw the ad and it featured Carl Philip racing and Crown Princess Victoria. I think it will be on this upcoming Friday June 6th.


A photo countdown of hottest royals
In Pictures: The 20 Hottest Young Royals - Forbes.com

I think the numbers a quite off, Victoria and her siblings are much hotter than a few of them listed higher

What on earth is Prince Phillipos doing at #19? He should be tied for #1 with Harry (apologies, but Wills has gotten rather horsey in the last couple of years, as the upper crust tends to do in the UK..)

Technically, Zara is not a "royal"!

William was hot like whoa for many years. Unfortunately, he now resembles his grandmother's prized livestock. I'll agree with you on Beatrice, but Zara is smoking hot--made more so by the fact that she has her own achievements that didn't come with birth.

uh Harry is quite hunky, but I think this discussion should be under British royals. I think they didn't account for William's progression of looking more like his father just his amount of money and charm.

wow so I just saw this and I was blown away. The family is worth 6 or 7 billion dollars. So I guess people can't whine when the girls spend money. I wonder where forbes came up with how much money everything costs and they have.

I'm watching that right now. I knew a lot of the stuff but Some is really surprising. Some shouldn't be on that list and others should. Princess Beatrice at fourth and before Char is a bit of a joke, even though I kinda like her.

I think we have to consider the source in this countdown, America love British Royals, so it would make sense they would take all the top spots. I have been interested in royals for a good few years now and only once have I heard of someone other than a British royal mentioned in the news, and that was Mary and Fred of Denmark when Isabella was born. I think the list is very wrong, but still fun to watch, speaking of it is on in a few minutes:)

the top four being all brit royals I disagree with. I'll give them Wills as the top of the countdown, he is so popular. But I'd have liked to see Victoria and Guillaume at least in the top five!

And in looks, Carl Philip should have been tops....

I was really happy to see several non-European royals on the list, such as Sheik Hamdan.

E! and Forbes' 20 Hottest Young Royals - documentary

The 20 Hottest Young Royals - Forbes.com

Have you guys seen this? I caught it a couple times. Some of what the people say seems accurate, although it seems like most of them don't know much about the subjects, just what's been given to them to read from a script.

The main thing that bugs me about it is that it features Zara Phillips and Andrea and Charlotte Casiraghi. Their mothers may be princesses, but that doesn't make them so, and the show even says that Anne and Caroline refused princess titles for them to make them more normal. Which isn't true, since neither of them would be entitled to one, as female-line grandchildren. Peerage title, maybe, but not princesses.

What I did like was the fact that we learned more about lesser known royals, like Tsuguko of Japan and Sheikh Hamdan and Sheikha Maitha. What I didn't like was the fact that instead of lumping families together, the Casiraghis, Swedish trio and William, Harry, Zara and Beatrice took over almost half the countdown. I enjoyed learning more about the more private royals, despite mumbling about errors in the program.

I like when television shows devote shows to royals, but I am a little iffy about this, because the show was more about flaunting the wealth of the people on the countdown, saying how they throw parties and own things worth millions of dollars. Sometimes it's stuff like this that I think makes people wonder what royals are useful for, especially when you have cases like that Bruneian prince who spent millions to get celebrities to come to his parties. They really only mentioned Harry's charity work as far as I can remember, and they only mentioned it to compare it to Diana's.

I recommend it as long as you go in with an open mind and remember that royals aren't all about the cash

I agree. Something that really annoyed me was the money thing. Did you notice that they mentione the price of a Ferrari just because Prince Albert of Thurn und Taxis races for a team that is owned by the same company that ownes Ferrari? What sort of thought line is that? Does he ctually own one, becaus they never mentioned that! I can say honestly that it sort of burnt my craw (whatever that means). I made a mental list as I was watching, and this is what I came up with (mostly about the Casiraghi/British families, because they're what I know the most about):

1) Charlotte Casiraghi's boyfriend is not French, he's English (thank you very much!), and he's not a land "baron"!
2) They mostly used pictures of Andrea Casiraghi more than a year old
3)They mentioned Princess Caroline as "Caroline of Monaco" while she is actually "Princess of Hannover"
4)Andrea has been seeing Tatiana Santo Domingo since 2004, not 2006! That's two years difference!
5) They only used pictures of William that were older too, except for a picture with Kate Middleton
6) I doubt that Prince William bought Kate all of the things they mentioned, because she isn't poor.
7) Princess Beatrice's 18th Birthday gown was a gift, meaning they did not pay for it
8) They said that Princess Beatrice bought a house in Sloan Square, but that hasn't been confirmed, and the latest news is saying she's staying at St. James Palace...
9) The Ferrari thing about Prince Albert^^

And besides all the things that were wrong, they left out Pierre Casiraghi! The people who made this list and then wrote this script really need a little fact check, and IMO maybe a Google Images search to find out who the REAL hottest royal is, because they don't seem to realize that Will's looks are fading, and that "Top Royals" shouldn't mean "Most Known" royals...

I actually wouldn't recomnd it, and even though I enjoyed learning about the royals that were unknown to me, I still took everything they said with a grain of salt because they seemed to contradict someof the things they said, and because if they get the most pulicised royals wrong, then how much of a possiblity is there that they got the lessr-known ones wrong too?

just my opion though
