Prince Mateen’s marriage will come as no surprise to those who have been following his news closely.

What could be a more official sign of couplehood than appearing at weddings together?

Since the Bruneian Royal Family appears to favour staging weddings in January, the Prince’s wedding next year will make it a hat-trick of January weddings in consecutive years.

Royal heartthrob has many fans

Prince Mateen, whose Instagram account has more than 2.4 million followers, has many fans across the region thanks to his good looks and rippling muscles.

It also helps that he’s a legit national hero, being a trained helicopter pilot and major in the Royal Brunei Air Force.

To top it off, the avid polo player has represented his country at the Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games), winning two bronze medals to boot.

The Prince has also been seen at numerous state engagements next to his father the Sultan, so he’s used to meeting world leaders.

He has carried out engagements on his own too. Just last month, he was in Singapore and was hosted to lunch by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

Sadly, the Prince’s older brother won’t be around to witness his wedding — he passed away in 2020 from multiple organ failure brought on by auto immune disease.

Congrats to Prince Mateen on his upcoming milestone. Hopefully his fans won’t be too heartbroken and will be happy that he’s found love.
