He returned to attend Sandhurst in the United Kingdom, where he graduated in 2017.

Prince Philippos (31) is the youngest son of Greece’s last monarch, Constantine II. Following in the footsteps of his older brother, Crown Prince Pavlos, Philippos set out to forge a career in finance and works at a hedge fund in New York as an analyst. In an interview, he stated that he sees no difference between himself and his hedge fund peers. “I work for a living,” he says. “Everyone has to work, and in that sense I’m like everyone else.” You have to respect a man who works hard for the money!

Prince Wenzeslaus (43) is a lot further down the line of succession than Prince Joseph, but who cares – he’s still a prince. Nicknamed ‘Prince Vince’ by the society pages, he became something of a target for the paparazzi in the mid-2000s after he started dating Victoria's Secret model Adriana Lima.
