Seven-step Strategy is Based on Badoo.com Global Study of 107 Romances Since 1945
LONDON, May 3, 2011 - Kate Middleton's met her prince. Want to meet your own?
Well, forget kissing frogs and start thinking strategically. That means
attending university (ideally, Cambridge), playing sport (ideally, tennis),
getting the right job (media or showbusiness) and targeting the right
countries (Scandinavia or Monaco).
In short, follow the "Seven Golden Rules" for meeting a prince, compiled
by social networking site Badoo.com (www.badoo.com), after analyzing
107 royal romances worldwide since 1945.
"Until now, the only known strategy for meeting a prince has been to kiss
lots of frogs", says Lloyd Price, Marketing Director of Badoo, the world's
largest social networking site for meeting new people. "We've produced the
first practical strategy based on analysis of historical data."
To Catch A Prince: Badoo's "Seven Golden Rules"
1. Think Global - Nearly Half Of Princes Marry Foreigners
2. Target Europe - Ideally, Monaco or Scandinavia
3. Get Educated - University Is The New Royal Marriage Market
4. Get On Your Party Shoes - Princes Like To Party
5. Think Sporty - Best Of All, Play Tennis
6. Get A Job - Ideally, In Media or Showbusiness
7. Fame Helps - Boost Your Odds By Being Famous First
You don't have to be royal yourself to make Badoo's rules work. Nearly
three-quarters (71%) of the women who romanced European princes in Badoo's
study were commoners, like Kate Middleton; and 63% were foreigners.
So, one Badoo rule states: "Target Europe". European princes are the most
likely to marry both commoners and foreigners. Best of all, target Monaco or
Another rule: "Get Educated - University Is The New Royal Marriage
Market". Not just did Kate meet William at Scotland's St Andrew's University
but 10% of Badoo's women met their princes as students. Best, target
Cambridge, the only university to produce more than one royal romance.
Parties are also good for meeting princes; the more you attend the
better. Best are parties given by mutual friends.
Sport is another good way to meet your prince. But some sports, like polo
or, best, tennis - are better bets than others, like snooker or darts.
Finally, get going. There are more princes out there than you think. The
princes in Badoo's study came from 30 countries, 33 royal families and four
continents. At least one must be right for you.
