It would appear William and Harry aren't the only royal heart-throbs who call London home, as Belgium's Prince Amedeo has also been turning heads around the British capital. The 19-year-old, who is the eldest son of Princess Astrid and her husband Archduke Lorenz, has bid farewell to his homeland and taken up residence in the UK in order to continue his studies.

Amedeo is currently getting into the swing of student life as a first year undergraduate at the London School of Economics. And the teenager obviously shares his British counterparts' love of the rugby field, as newly-released photographs show him strutting his stuff in a match with fellow students.

Another picture sees him looking just like any other young scholar hard at work in one of the university's computer rooms. But keeping on top of his coursework isn't the only activity that's occupying his time, as he was also snapped enjoying a few pints of beer with the new friends he has made since arriving in Britain.

Moving to Europe's biggest city, which is eight times larger than his hometown of Brussels, must have come as something of a shock to the young royal, but Amedeo is obviously enjoying the challenges and experiences offered by his new life in London.
