Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding was a feast for the eyes, from the bride’s elegant Givenchy dress to the couple’s official wedding portraits by Alexi Lubomirski. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were the stars of the show, of course, but there were also several celebrities and VIPs in attendance. One guest in particular captured the internet’s attention (and affection) — Harry’s cousin Louis Spencer.
Spencer is the son of Victoria Aitken and Charles, Earl Spencer, who is the late Princess Diana’s younger brother. The 24-year-old is next in line to the earldom, which isn’t technically a royal title, but is a fancy-schmancy societal ranking nonetheless. He attended the royal wedding with his mother, who was once a model, and sisters Lady Eliza and Lady Kitty Spencer, who is also a successful model and even a current face of Dolce & Gabbana.
In the days since the wedding, Spencer has been making waves for his Hollywood good looks. On Monday, People reported that the dashing royal relative is in fact single, and the internet exploded with heart-eye emojis and people looking for an in.
Markle, an American actress, began her romance with Prince Harry when a mutual friend set them up on a blind date, and many of Spencer’s admirers are hoping for their own meet cute in the same vein. “If any of my friends know Louis Spencer, now would be a good time to set me up on a blind date,” a radio host from Boston tweeted. By the looks of it, she’s going to have a lot of competition.
