From trips to Glastonbury to Indian holidays with friends, she might just be our favorite royal to date.

Forget and for a second, because there's another royal family member in our midst who is so down-to-earth, relatable and — dare we say it — cool, we can't quite believe she's an heir to the British monarchy.

Enter Lady Amelia Windsor.

While we know all about the and Prince William, the Olympic triumphs from the likes of Zara Phillips and the career aspirations of the likes of Beatrice and Eugenie, we must admit, Amelia Windsor has been slightly on the back burner when it comes to public knowledge about her life and relationship to the royal family.

The 21-year-old is the daughter of Dr. Sylvana Tomaselli and the Earl of St. Andrews George Windsor, who is the eldest son of Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, who is first cousin to Queen Elizabeth II. Um, got it?

And while Prince Harry and the like don't have social media accounts (to which we know of anyway), Amelia's Instagram feed is public, and documents the University of Edinburgh student's travels around the world, revision days color-coding notes, FROW catwalk shows and her favorite hobbies, which appear to include reading, drinking tea and sailing.

Having made her catwalk debut earlier this year at the Dolce & Gabbana show during Milan Fashion Week, the tiara-wearing student ramped up the royal family's fashion credentials, joining the likes of Anaïs Gallagher and Rafferty Law down the runway.


However, while the twenty-something might currently be 36th in line of the throne, boast a modeling contract with Storm model agency (the home of Cara Delevingne and Kate Moss) and been dubbed by Tatler as the "most beautiful member of the royal family," Windsor has a far more refreshing outlook on her role in the world than to rely on her family's connections and fortune.

"I would love to make a contribution to any aspect behind the creative process. On my year abroad I want to really further my understanding of every aspect of a fashion house: from the making of the fabrics to the production of a catwalk show," she told in January.

She also admitted she loves Adwoa Aboah's style, is off to Glastonbury later this month, is obsessed with the La La Land Soundtrack and couldn't live without avocado, papaya and Jo Malone body moisturizers.
