The royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has come and gone, but if you’re continuing to dream of the chance of having your own English wedding filled with members of the monarchy, there’s still hope. He may not be a prince, but it turns out that Harry has a super hot cousin who is also super single. Hello Louis Spencer!
Louis, or Louis Frederick John Spencer, Viscount Althorp as he’s known on his driver’s license (maybe not his drivers license, but that’s his official title), is the son of Charles Spencer, brother to the late Princess Diana. Louis’ father is the 9th Earl of Spencer, so as far as monarchies go, Louis isn’t actually a royal, but he is first cousins with Prince William and Prince Harry. What does that mean for us commoners? If you do eventually marry Louis there’s a huge chance that your wedding and family events will include some royal cameos.
As an added bonus, which we may have mentioned earlier, he’s also hot. Louis made an appearance at the royal wedding on Saturday, escorting his mother Victoria Aitken, as well as his sisters, Lady Eliza Spencer and Lady Kitty Spencer. Often staying out of the spotlight, Louis tends to only pop up at social events every few years.
Here he is in 2017 at a Michael Kors event.
And here he is in 2011 at his cousin Prince William’s wedding.
At 24-years-old, Louis is the youngest of his siblings, but as the only male in a society of outdated rules, Louis is set to inherit his father’s title and estates. You’re in it for love, of course, but just in case you were wondering what that estate includes, how about Althorp, the 90-room ancestral home of the Spencer clan, plus a family fortune somewhere in the $196 million range. It’s good to go into a relationship with all the facts, right?
Louis is reportedly single, making the British aristocrat one of England’s most eligible bachelors we didn’t even know we should be drooling over. Marrying Louis doesn’t mean you’ll get to be a Princess, but you will become a Countess, which let’s be real, still sounds hella impressive.
The heir to the Spencer estate doesn’t have any social media, which we kinda dig about him, but that didn’t stop us from creeping on his sister Lady Kitty’s Instagram feed to find a few more pics. Here’s Louis looking handsome on the right.
And on the left. No bad angles on this aristocrat!
