Who's left? World's most eligible royals
A look at the world's hottest royal bachelors and bachelorettes, now that Prince William is off the market
The royal wedding may be over, and the most eligible royal for the past decade may be off the market, but those dreaming of marrying royalty need not despair. There are still a few left to fight over.
From Bhutan to Monaco, deposed royalty to reigning kings, here are the world’s hottest, most eligible royals.

Casiraghi is currently dating British gallery owner Alex Dellal.

We also don't know if she's married, but if there's a glimmer of a chance she isn't, we'll take it.
