10 Reasons Why Prince William Is Still One Of The Most Popular Royals
February 19, 2018 11:23 By Fabiosa
Prince William is a heartthrob. The second in line to the British Throne began to steal hearts as a little boy and continued to make the headlines as a ruddy teenage with his good looks. But, he did grow up.
Are Prince William's fun days over?
He managed to do this without losing any of his charms. Quite possibly, he gained more admirers as he transitioned gracefully from his youth into adulthood and fatherhood.
The Duke of Cambridge has much more responsibilities these days. He is a husband and father of two children, with the third expected in April. And, his royal duties have increased.
He is still a favorite.
He may not be as fresh-faced or seem as fun as he used to, but, he is still one of our favorite royals and we’ll tell you why.
1. Good looks
Prince William does not look as chiseled as he used to but he is still good looking. The only casualty from aging appears to be his hair. He has lost a chunk of his locks. This has not robbed him of all his shine, though.
2. Prince with a heart of gold
Like his mom, Prince William is known for his charity work. He continues to raise awareness for causes that his mother cared about, and he also recently teamed up with his wife, Kate Middleton, and his brother, Harry, to raise awareness about mental health.
3. Down to earth
Prince William is generally considered to be humble. A little-known fact about Prince William's immediate family is that they mostly attend to their own needs without the aid of the royal staff.
4. He is averse to selfies but takes them anyway.
He is not a fan of selfies, but he obliges when he is asked for one.

5. He respects the memory of his mother.
After she told her son about his father’s affair, Princess Diana reportedly said this to him:
If you are lucky enough to find someone who loves you, then you must protect it.
If his relationship with his wife is any indication, then Prince William is certainly honoring the memory of his mother.
6. Great family man
He is often photographed with his family.
7. He trusts Kate Middleton
Prince William reportedly did not make Kate Middleton sign any prenuptial agreements before they got married.
8. His bond with Harry
This is perhaps one of the most endearing things about him. He and his brother are good friends. They don’t have to keep up appearances or try to get along. It is obvious that they have a strong bond.
9. He got a Penguin as a gift because he loves animals.
Everybody else gets a dog or cat. If you can afford it, you could get a horse. But Prince William got a penguin as a gift from the Chester Zoo as a wedding present. How do we recover from that?
10. Man of the people
You might say, it is expected that Prince William takes on the issues that affect people. But, what is clear about the Duke of Cambridge is that he does not do this with a sense of responsibility alone. He genuinely seems to care. In recent times, he has spoken about cyberbullying and unrealistic beauty standards.
The Queen's favorite?
Prince William may be one of our top favorite British royals, but his brother seems to top the list when it comes to the Queen of England's heart.
Proof of this? People are still a little stunned by the Queen's quick acceptance of Prince Harry's bride-to-be. In the video for the Queen's annual Christmas speech in December, watchers of the royal family were quick to spot the pictures of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's engagement placed around the room.
