Prince Abdul Mateen of Brunei has strengthened his reputation as the sexiest prince of South East Asia on Sunday by posting a photo of himself as ‘jungle boy’ on Instagram. The 27-year-old son of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah is depicted with a bare torso.
Within a matter of hours, the photo had more than 117,000 likes. More than 2,300 people had already commented. “A lot of people are dreaming of you”, was a reaction.
Prince Mateen , the tenth child of the sultan and his fourth son, has no less than a million followers on Instagram. That is four times as much as the Dutch royal family, while Brunei itself has only 428,000 inhabitants. But his sporting activities have also led the prince far beyond the national borders. For example, two years ago he took part in the South East Asian Games with the Brunei polo team. It also helps that his father has taken him on a trip often and often during the last few years.
On Instagram, Mateen shares his official activities alongside his sporting outings and gives an occasional insight into his military education. Last year he received his ‘wings’ from his father as a helicopter pilot. “No better feeling than to get your badge pinned by your own father”, the prince said.
