Once Prince Harry was well and truly off the market, Princess Margaret's grandson Arthur Chatto looked set to take the crown for most eligible royal bachelor. 

But the 19-year-old, who is the Queen’s great-nephew and former page boy, has broken hearts by going 'Instagram official' with his girlfriend Lizzie Friend for the first time.

The son of Lady Sarah Chatto, who is 23rd in line to the throne, posted a loved up snap of Lizzie perched on his knee with an arm slung around his shoulder. 

Lizzie is a fellow Edinburgh University student, where Arthur is studying History of Art, and a source previously told the Daily Mail: 'They hit it off straight away.

'She's really sweet and they make a very nice couple. He took her to Royal Ascot this summer as his date.'

 However, many of Arthur's 91,000 Instagram followers were downcast by the news he's off the market with several admitting they were 'jealous', while another wrote 'broken heart'.

While Arthur he is still best known for his lineage as the grandson of the Queen's late sister Princess Margaret, he is quickly gaining a loyal online following thanks to his very cheeky Instagram snaps.

Far from the official photographs that we are used to seeing from royals, Arthur's Instagram account gives a rare glimpse into his everyday life - and the teen has no problem sharing revealing snaps.

Earlier this summer Arthur set hearts aflutter when he took a picture wearing nothing but white Calvin Klein boxers and a very serious expression, and his hunky physique immediately attracted compliments from female admirers.

After attending Westminster Cathedral Choir school he followed in the footsteps of William and Harry at £33,270-a-year Eton, graduating this summer.

At Eton he was in its Combined Cadet Force, which teaches pupils various military skills. It echoes the trajectory of Prince Harry, who also joined the CCF at Eton before enrolling in the Armed Forces.

Now he's followed his older brother Sam to Edinburgh University.

Contrary to his buff brother, yoga-loving vegan Sam prefers to use social media to post spiritual messages such as: ‘Everything is beautiful and worthy of love, for, in loving, we are able to nourish our souls.

‘Today I felt love for the sun on my skin, the work that I did and the stones of the streets that I trod — what have you loved today?’

Arthur, by contrast, has expressed an interest online in food delivery service Deliveroo, and an app called Buzz Maids, which allows users to hire pay-as-you-go cleaners.

Princess Margaret’s grandson is also a fan of outdoor sports including Arctic diving and mountain climbing.
