Prince Harry has been crowned 'Sexiest Royal' in a poll, beating off competition from his brother, Prince William.

The readers of People Magazine voted the Duke of Sussex the sexiest royal on the planet, one year after he was named the publication's winner of the Sexiest Dad Alive title.

The red-haired, 36-year-old military veteran and former wild child defeated a whole host of famous faces last year, such as celebrities like Ryan Reynolds, Ryan Lochte and  Steven Yeun.

And this year, he defeated runner-up Prince Carl Phillip of Sweden, 41, who is married to glamorous former model, Sofia Hellqvist, and is fourth in line to the Swedish throne.

Other notable runners up were Prince Felix of Luxembourg, 36, and Prince Mateen of Brunei, 29.

Prince Felix of Luxembourg speaks seven languages and is married to German scientist Claire Lademacher. He is second in line for the throne of Luxembourg.

Meanwhile Abdul Mateen of Brunei has been long known for being a 'sexy' royal, as he drives fans wild with shirtless snaps on the beach and selfies in the gym.

His dad is worth an estimated Sh2 trillion ($20 billion). The fortune of Hassanal Bolkiah, the Sultan of Brunei, makes him one of the world's richest men.

Abdul is a keen sportsman who plays football, polo and enjoys skiiing and scuba-diving. He is also a qualified martial artist.

He is said to have competed at national level in badminton.

While he likes to show off his toned physique, he has a brain and qualifications which prove he is not just a pretty face.

He studied in London, at the prestigious King’s College London where he graduated in International Politics.

He then achieved a masters in international diplomacy from the equally prestigious School of African and Oriental Studies in London.

But it is the flame-haired, bearded Brit with a cheeky smile who is married to a former Hollywood actress, that has stolen the hearts of royal fans across the world.

Meanwhile, Black Panther actress Michael B. Jordan has been named People magazine's 'sexiest man alive'

He is the third Black actor in a row to be given the annual pop culture honor, as 41-year-old singer John Legend won it in November 2019.

Jordan, 33, who is single, said the title gave him "a cool feeling."

He is also known for performances in Fruitvale Station and Creed, for which he was critically acclaimed.

He has featured on the front cover of People Magazine, wearing a sharp King & Tuckfield outfit.

He added: "You know, everybody always made that joke, like, 'Mike, this is the one thing you´re probably not going to get'.

"But it's a good club to be a part of."

Other winners of sexiest man alive in the magazine include Brits David Beckham and Idris Elba.

Actor and former The Rock wrestler Dwayne Johnson previously bagged the prize, as did Thor actor Chris Hemsworth, singer Adam Levine and Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds.
