Every little girl dreams of being swept off her feet by a prince just like Kate Middleton was. And even though Prince William has dreamy good looks and enough charm to fill a castle, he might not be the best catch England has to offer. Yep, that's right: It's quite possible that Meghan Markle has actually snagged herself the ultimate royal man. 

Oh, sure, Prince Harry is probably never going to be king. But that means he gets the perks of the palace without the responsibilities of running the monarchy! At the same time, he's as devoted to philanthrophy and charitable causes as anyone in the royal family, taking after his mother Princess Diana in an incredibly big-hearted way. 

And as if that wasn't enough, Princess Di herself once described Prince Harry as "very artistic and sporty." That certainly seems to be the case to this day, as he continues to enjoy creative endeavors (he recently made headlines for buying Meghan a painting), as well as athletic ones, like playing tennis, cricket, and soccer with British schoolchildren to support the Fit and Fed campaign, an initiative that provides U.K. school children with activity, companionship and nutrition during school holidays.

Bottom-line: If Meghan Markle, a sexy, humanitarian, and successful Hollywood star, fell for Harry, it's obvious he has quite a bit to offer. Here, 20 reasons it's not hard to argue that Prince Charles and Princess Diana's youngest is actually the hottest Windsor.
