Prince Nikolai of Denmark was born of a modern monarchy. Destined for Dior, the young prince has charmed the fashion world, racking up runway appearances and magazine covers since his debut. So what is a prince who is also a model really like?
Prince Nikolai of Denmark will be arriving on the Eurostar from Paris to London at exactly 17.21. It is 17.15 and I am pacing about arrivals with a sign bearing his name. I have never met a prince before, let alone picked one up at a train station. Minutes tick by and the sign above flickers from “on time” to “arrived”. Passengers begin streaming through the double doors. A tall, lean figure approaches and removes his face mask to reveal a megawatt, movie-star smile. He extends his hand in greeting.
