Meet Prince Abdul Mateen, the handsome fourth son of the Sultan of Brunei who stole the hearts of many women. He is also an active social media user with more than 1.1 million followers on Instagram.
The 27-year-old is the 10th child and fourth son of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah of Brunei and his second wife Mariam Abdul Aziz. He was born in the tiny island nation off the coast of Borneo on August 10, 1991.
Of course, Prince Mateen is not just all about the good looks, he earned his Master’s Degree in Arts from the University of London’s School of Oriental and African Studies before enrolling at the Sandhurst Military Academy in 2010. He is also passionate about playing polo and served as a helicopter pilot in the Royal Brunei Armed Forces.
Prince Mateen inherited $25.8 billion dollar fortune from his father, Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah. He is also a bonafide animal-lover, who refers to himself as the ‘father of tigers,’ and love staying at the beach.
“[He is] a grounded man who doesn’t like to flaunt his family’s wealth,” “[He is] more interested in the simple life, his passions, time with family and friends, and his other noble pursuits,” a profile in GQ Thailand wrote.
Situated on the northern shore of the island of Borneo, Brunei is one of the smallest yet richest countries in the world. The Sultan of Brunei is one of the richest men in the world. The royal family owns some of the world’s most expensive, beautiful, rarest, fastest and unique collection of over 7,000 high-performance cars, including 604 Rolls Royce cars, 547 Brunswick, 452 Ferrari,382 Bentley, 209 BMW, 179 Jaguar, 134 Nisek, 21 Lamborghini 11 Aston Martin, and 1 SSC Silbe.
When asked about his ideal type of wife, he said.
“I hope my future wife will be a simple and pure person, if I choose her, I will be with her all of my life.”
But although there were thousands of women who express their love for the handsome and wealthy prince, he remained single up to this date. He is also cautious when it comes to this matter because his respect for women is very high. It’s no surprise why Tatler dubbed him as the
“sxiest of the single Princes.”
