T&C says its Top 40 Bachelors list is "a highly subjective, thoroughly opinionated survey of the princes, politicians, scions, DJs, and billionaires-to-be we consider the most eligible men in the universe."
Third-in-line-to-the-British-throne Harry beat the likes of Andrew Lauren (Ralph's oldest), NFL quarterback Tim Tebow, Prince Carl Philip of Sweden, Prince Amedeo of Belgium, Prince Philippos of Greece & Denmark, actor George Clooney, and the Winklevoss twins (of Facebook fame/notoriety).
T&C says Harry is the "least buttoned-up royal" and that "he's the wild-card royal, the naughty one, the one who goes out with rah women, hangs out with a fast crowd, downs too many drinks, and goes home at the wrong moment. That's why we like him best." (Translation note: "rah women" refers to wealthy, private-school types.) The magazine also explained, "Harry might not possess a towering intellect--he was a lackadaisical student at Eton, and he skipped university to go to Sandhurst, the English equivalent of West Point--but he is cooler and more appealing than his older brother, sweet as William undoubtedly is."
Town & Country, America's oldest, continually published, general-interest magazine is a monthly publication. It caters to young socialites, cafe society denizens, and middle-class professionals by featuring ads for luxury goods and articles that appeal to the moneyed class, such as art, fashion, travel, parties, gala events, and interior design.
The Top 40 Bachelors list appears in the February issue of Town & Country, now on newsstands. The list is online too.
