Others claim that 25-year-old Prince Mateen, with his dark hair and preference for suits that flaunt his muscular physique, is a resurrection of Cary Grant.

His following on Instagram increased by 166 percent after his public visit to Thailand, according to a magazine that interviewed him.

All around the Internet, Prince Mateen has been getting a lot of attention.

And so has his action-packed lifestyle.

Just like Prince Harry, he attends military functions in uniform and other state activities in a sharp suit.

Prince Mateen is a lieutenant in the Brunei military, having studied at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in the U.K. at age 18.

He has his own military uniform, and presumably, a heap of bespoke suits for dinners and other state functions.

He plays polo daily.

For Prince Mateen, four in the afternoon is polo time. Sometimes, he plays with his sister, Princess Azemah.


He has even been featured on the cover of a magazine holding a mallet.

If polo seems to be a staple activity among the wealthy, it’s because of the required exclusivity.

This sport is usually played in clubs that have high membership fees.

To play polo, one needs a horse.

To properly groom a horse, one needs a stable and a trainer. It is an activity that requires expensive upkeep.

Prince Mateen has been seen on horseback treading the beach. That must have been a well-trained horse.
