(CBS News) -- When it comes to eligible bachelors, look no further than Prince Harry.

Town & Country named the single British royal the world's leading eligible bachelor. Why? The magazine notes: "We love him because he's comfortable in his own skin and isn't too stiff or pompous to show it. His wardrobe malfunctions -- and coups (how dashing does he look in his Army Air Corps blue beret?) -- merely reinforce our impression of Harry as playful, adventurous, a Renaissance man. Sometimes it's good not to be king."

Harry, of course, was on a lot of people's radars last year after naked photos surfaced of a scandalous trip to Las Vegas.

The 28-year-old beat out the likes of George Clooney in a 40-person list that includes a wide variety of celebrity and high-powered men -- of all ages. Several other royals made the cut: Prince Philippos of Greece and Denmark, Prince Carl Philip of Sweden and Prince Amedeo of Belgium.

NBA star Jeremy Lin also snagged a spot on Town & Country's most eligible bachelor list, as did NFL player Tim Tebow.

CBS' own Charlie Rose also had a spot on the tally, along with Corey Booker, mayor of Newark, N.J., and actor Jack Nicholson.

Patrick Schwarzenegger found himself on the worthy bachelor list, as did Taylor Swift's one-time beau, Conor Kennedy.

The magazine describes its list as "a highly subjective, thoroughly opinionated survey of the princes, politicians, scions, DJs, and billionaires-to-be we consider the most eligible men in the universe."
