It seems to be one of the great injustices of our time that children who are blessed by being born into royalty can also be so devastatingly good looking that they can model. Prince Nikolai of Denmark is one such person. The 18-year-old son of Prince Joachim and Alexandra, Countess of Frederiksborg, just signed his first modeling contract with Scoop Models, the company announced with a series of headshots on Instagram last week.
Make sure you scroll through all these pics because you will not be disappointed. I mean, come on. That hair! That jawline! That dewy skin that looks like it's ripped straight from a Glossier ad! Ugh.
Nikolai, who is sixth in line to the throne, made his modeling debut during London Fashion Week. He walked in the Burberry show, and Scoop confirmed to Danish newspaper Billedbladet that he is in fact signed with the agency and they were the ones who booked him for Burberry. Cara Delevingne also walked in the show.
This isn't the first time a member of a royal family has taken a detour into fashion. Earlier this week, the late Prince Diana's niece, Lady Kitty Spencer, walked Dolce and Gabbana's "Secrets & Diamonds" show. But apparently, Nikolai is the type to like doing his own thing. His father told Billedbladet that Nikolai "should not be forced into something. Nikolai's future shall be conducted entirely by his own plan." Hopefully that includes *lots* more modeling.
