  • The Prince beat of fierce competition from the likes of Robert Pattinson ad Dizzee Rascal

    Prince Harry has been crowned GQ’s king of cool, topping their list of the world’s 50 hippest men.

    With some pretty fierce competition, the young Royal beat off the likes of Robert Pattinson, who came in at number two, and Dizzee Rascal, who bagged the fourth spot.

    Barack Obama’s aide Reginald L. Love is at number three, actor Jason Schwartzman number five and athlete Usain Bolt is number six.

    As for the criteria determining the cool factor, GQ looked for an ‘enviable sense of savoir faire, a talent for transforming the mundane into the extraordinary, or just really edgy haircut’.

    Harry topped the list thanks to his role as a ‘soldier, ambassador, polo player and playboy.’

    Meanwhile, Prince William was no where to be seen on the list. We guess being heir to the throne just simply isn’t cool enough…
