The internet cannot seem to get enough of Arthur Chatto, Queen Elizabeth's great-nephew who would soon be joining among the rank of the Commandos. Chatto is officially the grandson of Princess Margaret and the son of her only daughter Lady Sarah Chatto. But unofficially, he is hailed across the country as the 'royal heartthrob' and we cannot agree more. The 22-year-old handsome hunk revealed to the Queen last week that he has been accepted to train as an officer in the Royal Marine. Chatto would be joining the Commandos after training in Balmoral.

According to a royal insider source, "Arthur Chatto has been accepted to train as an officer in the Royal Marines. He told the Queen all about it and she’s pleased and proud. Prince Edward has been very supportive. Arthur has even been going off into the wilds at Balmoral with all his kit and camping out as he prepares for the commando training. He has gone straight into the officer training in this year’s intake and is very keen and up for it. It’s a dead cert he’ll get a lot further than Prince Edward ever did." It is believed that Chatto has taken advice from Prince Edward who pursued the training in 1987 but dropped out midway.

Before being selected with the Royal Marines, he was a personal trainer and model. Arthur was quite active on Instagram, regularly sharing his workout photos and videos where he flaunted his flawless abs.
