Once ranked as one of the "Hottest Young Royals of 2009" by Forbes, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince, is considered one of the most eligible young royals in the world.
A photography enthusiast and active Instagrammer, the prince keeps his followers - including a large female following - updated about his life through regular social media posts.
Boasting of a large following online, Hamdan recently reached 5 million followers on Instagram.
So how did the young prince become an internet heartthrob? These pictures prove that Canadian PM Justin Trudeau isn't the only heartthrob leader out there.
Here are a few unseen pictures of Hamdan over the years, from the time he was born to the handsome prince he is today.

Born in 1982, Hamdan began his schooling at the Rashid Private School in Dubai and then went to the United Kingdom for further studies. After graduating from the prestigious Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, he later attended the London School of Economics.

We also stumbled upon his pictures from his childhood and they are awe-worthy. In the picture below, a young Sheikh Hamdan is seen holding a falcon in 1989.

In this old picture, he is seen with his father, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai.
