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 :wub:
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

I don't think Frederik and Jaime make it on the list....:rofl: :lol:

Little_star 08-24-2006 08:57 AM

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.

crisscross1 08-24-2006 11:05 AM

I think IñakiUrdangarínlooks really nice in both casual wear and a suit.

Avalon 08-24-2006 03:35 PM

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

You have read your Anne of Greengables novels then? :lol: 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.

Eliza 08-25-2006 02:03 AM

My votes goes to:-
1. CP Felipe
2. CP Hakkon
3. GD Henri
4. CP Pavlos

All very elegant, handsome and most distinguished!

Anita 08-25-2006 09:51 AM

I would say King Juan Carlos of Spain .:smile:

Her_Majesty 08-25-2006 10:38 AM

I think there are quite a lot "elegant" royal men..
but the first who comes to my mind is Henri of Luxembourg! :flowers:
He always looks hadsome.:wub:

Furthermore I vote for Prince Haakon and Prince Felipe.

LadyS 08-25-2006 10:41 AM

I think Prince Felipe, Prince Pavlos, Prince Emanuele Filiberto.

saphills 08-25-2006 10:44 AM

Prince Haakon and Iñaki Urdangarin are my choice.

1) Prince Mauritz van Vollenhoven
2) Prince Joachim of Denmark
3) Grand Duke Henri of Luxemburg

HRH Mims 08-25-2006 11:59 AM

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

*SofiaM* 08-27-2006 02:31 PM

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!

shrifia 08-27-2006 03:33 PM

1- cp hakkon
2-GD henri
i agree with little_star prince was a very elegant man

STEVEN 08-28-2006 12:54 PM

Maurits van Vollenhoven
Frederik of Denmark

Rebafan81 08-28-2006 01:27 PM

CP Haakon
GD Henri
CP Frederick
CP Jaochim
Prince Carl Philip

sesa 08-28-2006 02:29 PM

For me both GD Henri and Pr. Hans-Adam of Liechtenstein are both very handsome and distinguished.
For some reason, Pr. Felipe, Pr. Frederick, and all the other men of this generation are just average to me. Nothing really stands out about them to me. Felipe's forhead and ears are too big for me, but he has very nice eyes and a great smile. Frederick is just "little boy cute" to me. I like men that look like men. Joachim (sp) is o.k., but he is too tall and skinny. reminds me of a pencil. Don't get me wrong,all of them are not bad too look at, very easy on the eyes, but to me, they are not in the same class as GD Henri and Pr. Hans-Adam.

TamaraKhan 08-28-2006 03:07 PM

Natural elegance "which means for me being a gentelman" King Juan Carlos of Spain,elegance related to clothes Jaime Marichalar Infanta's Elena husband.

Prince Charles: he's the quintessence of elegance... :wub:

PadThaiPrincess 01-02-2008 08:20 PM

Felipe, the Prince of Asturias always looks wonderful, neat and elegant with beautifully tailored clothing.

Drottning 01-02-2008 09:13 PM

The Prince of Asturias followed by the Prince of Wales.

GlitteringTiaras 01-02-2008 09:49 PM

I believe HRH Crown Prince Haakon is very elegant. There's something about him that sets him apart from the rest... I cannot put my finger on it.

I also think Crown Prince Naruhito is elegant along with Grand Duke Henri and Prince Hans-Adam.

ZUBIAUR 05-22-2009 07:03 PM

I think the duke of Edimburg and Prince Charles of England are the most elegant ones:flowers:

Princess Mia 05-22-2009 08:34 PM

Grand Duke Henri, is very elegant for a man. And King Carl Gustaf.

MAfan 05-23-2009 08:02 AM

Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg and his son Prince Felix, the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Jaime of Bourbon-Parma.

Prince William & Prince Paul of Greece:I love their unique style.

Dierna23 10-15-2009 06:13 PM

For me Prince Michael of Kent - sorry, but I simply love his old fashioned style. :smile:

For dead royal men I would say: the Duke of Windsor, Prince George of Kent & Lord Louis Mountbatten.

MelinaB. 10-15-2009 06:16 PM

Mmm, I agree; only I don't like completely his too big necktie knots; but on the other side I can't imagine him without them...
