Prince Harry who?

Now that Prince Harry is officially off the market, it's time to find a new royal to swoon over. Meet Prince Harry's and Prince William's very handsome (and single!) cousin Louis Spencer of Viscount Althorp.

He is the nephew of the late Princess Diana, and although he's not a "prince," he sure has the qualities and looks of one! The 24-year-old is the son of Princess Diana’s brother Earl Spencer and stands to inherit his father’s title one day.

Since his appearance at the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, people have swarmed social media with questions about Louis — most importantly, his love life. His name was mentioned in hundreds of comments on Twitter and Instagram. According to Daily Mail, one woman tweeted, "If Meghan Markle's circle of friends can hook her up with Prince Harry, I'm going to need to find a circle of friends who can hook me up with Louis Spencer."

Louis's latest appearance was at Prince Harry's and Meghan Markle's wedding alongside his mother Victoria Aitken, and two of his sisters, Lady Eliza Spencer and Lady Kitty Spencer. Clearly, good looks run in this family as his mom is a former model and his older sister Kitty also took up modeling. 

Louis is much more than a handsome face, though. He reportedly studied at the University of Edinburgh, according to the Daily Mail

Here's 5 other facts about the world's most eligible bachelor!

1. Louis grew up in Cape Town, South Africa.

Louis grew up with his six siblings in Cape Town, the capital of South Africa. According to Hello Magazine, Louis studied at the Diocesan College but decided to move back to the UK to continue his studies at the University of Edinburgh. 

2. Louis once hung out with Nicki Minaj.

Louis met rapper Nicki Minaj backstage at her concert in 2015, and Nicki was not shy and made it clear she found Spencer very charming. Nicki shared the photo above on her Instagram account with the caption, "Check out our wedding photo. No honestly it was such an honor to have you guys."

3. Louis will inherit his family's title and inheritance.

While Louis is not the oldest of his siblings, he is the eldest son which by British law means that he is meant to inherit his father's earl title. According to Heavy, his father Charles Spencer’s net worth is estimated around $149 million dollars, and on top of that, he will also inherit the family estate, Althorp. Score.

4. Louis' parents are divorced.

Louis is the youngest child of Earl (Charles) Spencer and Victoria Aitken, who divorced in 1997 shortly after the death of Princess Diana. Reports claim their marriage was tumultuous due to Victoria discovering Charles's affair with a journalist, according to Heavy. After the divorce, Victoria was denied any of the Spencer's fortune due to Charles's claim that the fortune was tied up in property and trusts. Charles then moved his children from England to Cape Town to live a quieter life outside the paparazzi's glare.

5. Louis is not on social media.

Sadly, the extremely handsome redhead is nowhere to be found on social media. That means we can't properly stalk him and like all his photos like every other celebrity, but fret not, he's definitely worth fighting for. As mentioned earlier although he keeps a very private life, Louis appears to be very single, so some lucky girl still has the chance to win his heart!
