Whether he’s flying helicopters or playing polo, Prince Mateen isn’t particularly flashy about his wealth – but snippets of his life piece a pretty sweet picture together.

At 26 years of age, Prince Mateen of Brunei has been proclaimed the region’s most eligible bachelor time and time again.

His 788k-follower-strong Instagram (@tmski) provides more than a few clues to explain this intrigued fandom. Born the tenth child to Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, the #fitprince boxes, skis, swims, and dives, on a foundation of military training. Is it any surprise Prince Mateen gets his kicks from flying helicopters and cuddling wild animals?

See for yourself in his not-so-average visual diary.

It all begins with the jet-setting lifestyle royal heirs are ever-familiar with.
