Wink Most naturally elegant royal man...?

Let's try something different: after hundreds of posts of stylish royal women, it's time to bring in the guys. So, who do you find the most elegant royal man?

My vote:
1) GD Henri of Luxembourg - rather very easy on the eye
2) King Juan Carlos - old-school style
3) Andrea Casiraghi - new-school - if there ever was such - and very effortless

you nailed it--also, Joachim of Denmark deserves a vote

Hmm, I don't think I'd ever describe a man as "elegant", I prefer distinguished.

1-King Juan-Carlos
2-Prince Haakon
3-Prince Felipe
4-Although he's deceased, an honourary mention for Prince Rainier.

My vote goes to Prince Ernst-August of Hanover. He made the men’s top 10 list 'Best dressed' of Vanity Fair this year.

I think Prince Charles and Prince Felipe are definitely among the most elegant Royal men.

You have read your Anne of Greengables novels then? I went to a pub tonight, and came to the conclusion that perhaps the best words are stylish and cool; the very young guys there, in their velvet jackets, messy hair and self-rolled ciggies were just that. And not giving a d*mn, which constitutes more often than not for style. Hence why I don't like for example Jaime much - way too much effort.

The same goes with the ladies as; Marie-Astrid of Luxembourg got many votes in the most elegant princess thread, and she is always very subdued. M-T is not, and looses in my eyes points for being always sort of over the top.

Absolutely one is GD Henri. He can do everything, he still looks like in his 20. And then prince Haakon of Norway, he has strong charisma and 3rd place for me has prince Frederick. He's such so cute

When I think of 'elegant' for the royal men, GD Henri and King Juan Carlos come to my mind. They are, as previously said both very handsome and distinguished!
