Brooklyn Beckham has been named the 'most eligible bachelor' of 2019

A surprising choice?

A surprising choice?

In what is perhaps a surprising move, Tatler has named Brooklyn Beckham their 'most eligible bachelor' for 2019.

Yep, in a list that is usually full of dukes and princes, David and Victoria Beckham's eldest child has won the top spot following his split from Hana Cross.

Giving their reasoning behind the decision, Tatler explained: 'Easily identifiable by his Victorian chimneysweep style, newly single Brooklyn, 20, has almost as many tattoos as his father and just as much charm.'

'The up-and-coming photographer FaceTimes his family from photoshoots,' they added.

Brooklyn is the youngest member in the top ten of Tatler's list, with the next youngest being James Chester Campbell, Viscount Emlyn (future Earl of Cawdor), at 21.

While the remaining bachelors in the top ten may not be recognisable to you or I, there are some men you may have heard of, including ex-One Directioner Harry Styles. Styles pipped others to the post at number 4. His profile by the publication reads: 'spot the iridescent flares of this louche lizard in Hampstead when he’s not jetting around the world on tour – or as a Gucci muse. Harry, 25, is a soulful sort – his favourite author is Haruki Murakami and he writes songs about being sad.'

Also in the top ten are 1975 frontman Matthew Healy and English cricketer Jofra Archer, of which the publication says: 'His bouncers terrified the Australians and he bowled the crucial over that won England the Cricket World Cup this summer – it’s no wonder that the softly spoken Jofra, 24, is in such high demand. He’s never happier than when he’s with his dogs.'

While the top ten are available to peruse over on Tatler's website, the full list will feature 50 of the most eligible bachelors, and will be available in Tatler's December issue in print.

We wonder how long the top ten will be 'bachelors' after this...
