Europe’s royal families might all follow different national rules and traditions, but seven of the continent’s ruling dynasties all share an unlikely common ancestor: King George II, the 18th century monarch of Great Britain and Ireland. So it’s not so surprising that there are today royals who resemble other members of their shared family tree, however distantly related, even those in a different sovereign state. And here at STYLE we reckon one obvious example might be found in Belgium’s Prince Joachim, who shares certain uncanny similarities with Britain’s Prince Harry. So aside from their apparent facial features, how else are these two young princes alike? How do Queen Elizabeth and the British royal family make their millions? Both have a military background Prince Joachim took a military course at the Centre for Basic Training at Arlon. He also took an officer’s course at the Belgian Navy’s Nautical School in Bruges (West Flanders), according to VRT NWS. On July 29, 2011, he became a full-fledged officer in the Belgian Navy and has served there ever since.

In 2017, Prince Harry was appointed Captain General of the Royal Marines, succeeding his grandfather, Prince Philip. He was also the Commodore-in-Chief of the Royal Navy and Honorary Air Commandant of Royal Air Force Honnington.

From telling “eye-wateringly” rude jokes to drinking champagne out of a prosthetic leg, getting naked in Vegas to reportedly partying until 3am the night before brother Prince William’s wedding, Prince Harry lived and breathed rebelliousness.

Besides his officer’s training, he also studied economics at Bocconi University in Milan, Italy. Prince Harry, on the other hand, was educated at Eton College, an international boarding school in Britain. However, he did not attend university, entering the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in 2005 to train as an Officer Cadet instead. 3 hunky European princes that are breaking the mould According to royal etiquette, both men can now be touched According to their website, the protocol when meeting a member of the Belgian royal family is to shake hands. For the British royal family, touching is a no-no. But Prince Harry resigned from the family, stepping back from his duties. As he is no longer required to abide by their strict protocols, he can now shake hands, or even kiss and hug fans.
