These Sets of Royal Siblings Always Give Us Ultimate Siblings Goals

close royal siblings

Having siblings is always a great blessing. Siblings play a significant part in our formative years, and even in our adulthood, they are our primary source of support. While they can get irritating and interfering sometimes it is hard to imagine life without them. 

In royalty where lives are very public and every movement is scrutinized, we have seen how royals form a close bond with their siblings and stood by each other come what may. 

The sibling relationship between Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, and Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, may be tense and fractured, but there are other royals around the world who continue to give us an ultimate sibling goal!

Here they are:

1. The Princess of Asturias and Infanta Sofia of Spain - These teenage daughters of King Felipe VI of Spain and Queen Letizia grew up in the public eye, just like any other royal kids, and over the years, we saw them developed a close bond in public engagements.



Recently, as Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia take on more public duties, we have also seen them form a deep bond as they take joint public engagements without their parents. It only indicates that they are now ready to become full-time working royals. The Spanish royals just came back from their annual summer holiday in Palma de Mallorca.



The Spanish monarchy does not have working royals officially, other than the King and Queen. King Felipe's sisters are not working royals, and his mother, Queen Sofia, is gradually stepping back from royal duties.

The spotlight is now focusing on King Felipe's daughters. And as Princess Leonor prepares for her future role as monarch, her younger sister is just behind her back showing her full support.

2. Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella of Monaco - They maybe just children but seven-year-old twins, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella of Monaco are slowly transitioning to working royals since 2021.

The twins proved to be the reliable support of their father, Prince Albert II, the Sovereign Prince of Monaco, during a time their mother, Princess Charlene, extended her stay in South Africa for almost a year.



The royal twins frequently appeared with their father in public while the Sovereign Prince were performing royal duties all throughout 2021 without his wife.

This year, as Princess Charlene gradually resumed royal duties, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella are all present to support their mother in public engagement. It's also cute to see these royal fraternal twins, hugging each other and holding hands while appearing in public.

Most of us perhaps can fully relate to them as we were in the same situation with our siblings back in our childhood. 

3. Queen Margrethe II, Princess Benedikte, and Queen Anne-Marie - Who says siblings can't maintain their childhood closeness when they grow up and have their own families? These three royal sisters will prove that siblings can maintain a close bond even in adulthood.

It's always heartwarming to see royal siblings grow up very close and maintain that warm affection towards each other even after having their own families. And living in different countries.

These royal sisters: Queen Margrethe II of Denmark, Princess Benedikte, and Queen Anne-Marie of Greece, proved that we can still forge close relationships with our siblings even after having grandchildren.

Queen Anne-Marie, who is currently living in Greece with her husband, the ex-king of Greece, Constantine II, regularly paid her sisters a visit. They also continued their childhood tradition of spending summer holidays in Jutland. Their children are also close, always finding time to be together despite living in other parts of the continent.

4. Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie - We know these two royal sisters are very close ever since their childhood. Their closeness and support towards each other did not wane even after having their own respective families.

The York sisters often spent a vacation together, and just early this year, they went to Switzerland for their annual winter holiday, with their mother, husbands, and their infant kids.

5. Crown Prince Hussein and his younger siblings - Outside Europe, there's a set of royal siblings who impressed us with the level of closeness they have shown. The Jordanian royal kids. They are also the first set of children of the reigning Jordanian king who are full siblings (meaning they shared only one set of parents). 

King Abdullah II of Jordan is one of the fewest Arab kings in the modern world who has no other wife/children other than Queen Rania and their children.

Crown Prince Hussein, who is just engaged to Rajwa Al Saif, regularly shows sibling affection to his younger brother, Prince Hashem, and younger sisters, Princess Iman and Princess Salma.

It's so sweet to always read the warm birthday greetings of the Crown Prince to his younger siblings on his official instagram account, accompanied by photos showing him with them

In royalty, it's a rare moment for a future king to show warm sibling affection publicly as Crown Prince Hussein, and with that, we are extremely inspired with his unique love for his younger siblings.

He also posed with Princess Iman and her fiance, when the princess became officially engaged in July. And congratulated them on his social media accounts. He is truly a sibling goal!

6. Prince Christian and Prince Vincent of Denmark - The two sons of Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark and Crown Princess Mary reminded us of the close relationship of Prince William and Prince Harry. Prince Christian often shows his protective side to Prince Vincent and his sisters, Princess Isabella and Princess Josephine, during public outings.

But the future King of Denmark is gradually showing warm bonds with his only brother, even displaying his tactile side during public engagements to Prince Vincent by hugging him or wrapping his arms around his younger brother's shoulder. 

7. The Dutch Princesses - Princesses Catharina-Amalia, Alexia, and Ariane also grow up in the public eye, just like most royal kids. The Dutch royal family has a traditional annual photo shoot during summer, spring, and winter, and the three royal sisters clearly show their mutual affection during the photo sessions.

We also love the fact that The Princess of Orange who is one day will mount the Dutch throne as queen, gives her attention to her younger siblings, as displayed in their public photos.

8. Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix of Denmark - These royal brothers are children of Prince Joachim of Denmark, the youngest son of Queen Margrethe II of Denmark, and his first wife, Alexandra, the Countess of Frederiksborg.

Their Highnesses also have a secondary noble title, Count of Monpezat. Their parents separated and divorced when they were still young boys, and this marital dysfunction drew Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix closer together.

They are also close to their half-siblings, Prince Henrik and Princess Athena, and to their stepmother, Princess Marie. They often spent summer break as one family unit at Queen Margrethe's estate in France. 

In June this year, the royal brothers sat down for an interview with Billed Bladet, a lifestyle magazine in Denmark, and revealed some private and personal details about their lives.

Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix are not Royal Highnesses because their father is not in direct succession to the throne but both of them are in line of succession to the Danish throne. Prince Nikolai and Prince Felix are 7th and 8th in the succession line.

Today is Prince Nikolai's 23rd birthday and the Royal Court of Denmark posted photos of him with his siblings, taken by Princess Marie at their country estate in France. Happy birthday!

According to the caption of these photos on the Royal Court of Denmark's official social media accounts, the photos were captured by Princess Marie and Princess Athena!

9. Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn - Legally, they are Princess and Prince of the United Kingdom respectively, but they did not use it officially. When their parents got married in 1999, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, with the approval of the Queen, chose not to give their children titles to protect them from the trappings of royal life.


Lady Louise and her brother, James, have a secluded childhood and only show up in public during royal events and celebrations such as the Trooping the Color ceremony, and royal weddings.

This year, however, the siblings are more visible in public, accompanying their parents to royal events. They both attended the memorial service for their grandfather, Prince Philip, in March this year. And both attended the Queen's Birthday Parade and Jubilee celebrations.

Lady Louise is set to move to Scotland this autumn to begin her university life at the University of St. Andrews in Aberdeenshire, near the Queen's Balmoral estate.

10. Princess Estelle and Prince Oscar of Sweden - We've seen these two royal siblings grow up very close, with Princess Estelle constantly giving her younger brother, Prince Oscar, a warm hug in public.

Princess Estelle, 10, and Prince Oscar, 6, are second and third in the line of succession to the Swedish throne. They are also listed in the line of succession to the British throne as descendants of Queen Victoria.

You could see how much affection Princess Estelle has given to her younger brother each time they have a photoshoot or simply on vacation and public engagements. She always ensures safety for her younger brother, which gives us an ultimate sibling goal all the time.

11. Princess Alexandra of Hanover and Charlotte Casiraghi - These two daughters of Princess Caroline of Monaco are close since Princess Alexandra's childhood. And it was Charlotte Casiraghi who acted as her younger sister's mentor in fashion modeling.

These two sisters often spotted attending, not only royal events in Monaco, but also the fashion runways in France and Italy. They are also both fashion trendsetters just like their mother, Princess Caroline.

Princess Alexandra is also close to her older half-brothers, Andrea and Pierre Casiraghi, and to their respective wives, who are both socialites, Tatiana Sto. Domingo and Beatrice Borromeo, an Italian aristocrat.

Princess Alexandra has two older half-brothers on her father's side, Prince Ernest August and Prince Christian of Hanover. Though she attended both their weddings, we have not seen them together in public as a family unit.
