What’s hotter than a dashing young man playing polo? A prince charming fighting a good game on a mighty horse in a regional competition, of course. At the SEA Games 2017, Bruneian royal Prince Mateen – also known as “hot royal” and “handsome prince” by the media – more than just graced the games with his presence. The royal boasted his polo skills while partaking in a polo match, representing Brunei for equestrian polo events at this year’s prestigious Asian multi-sport championship.
The athletic 26-year-old prince with a strong social media reach of 509k on Instagram played alongside his 33-year-old sister, Princess Azema, against Malaysia. Despite putting up a good game, Brunei scored 4-12 against its contender at the game.
Just when everyone thought the spectacle was over, the prince surprised his ardent fans after the game. He emerged from the tents and crawled under the barriers to get close to his supporters. As the prince got closer and closer to the crowd, the girls from the pack got more and more stirred with excitement, letting out screams and wasted no time in whipping out their phones to snap a selfie with the prince who was more than glad to flash a smile for (and with) them.
When a prince with chiselled good looks takes time to shower some good loving to his followers, it’s hard not to get LOTS of love back, you know?
