It sounds like latest craze –Prince Abdul Mateen of Brunei has found a new Filipino girlfriend, Rachel Louise Oregano Peters, a Filipino-British model and beauty queen who was crowned Miss Universe Philippines 2017. Incredibly, the duo are really heating up!
The 26-year-old royal, who is largely considered a handsome Prince of Asia is currently on a romantic getaway in the South of France with Rachel Peters who is currently in a break up with his former boyfriend Governor Migz Villafuerte. The cuties have been staying at a friend’s luxury villa and have barely left the premises while on vacation, a source tells.
Instead of going out to clubs or restaurants, the lovebirds have been spending every minute together by the pool and out of the eyes of the prying paparazzi. “They’ve been talking until late into the night and having one of those magical times that you have when you first fall in love and want to find out everything you can about the other person,” the source says. ” Prince Mateen had no interest whatsoever in going out and just wants to focus on without any distractions.”
Prince Mateen and Rachel Peters first started dating two weeks ago and have bonded over her job as a charity worker. “Rachel’s the full package—she’s got beauty and brains,” the royal insider dishes. “But Maaten loves how she’s devoted her life to charity—she’s fully committed to helping other people and he sees a lot of his mother Ms. Hjh Maryam’s goodness in her.”
Maaten “sees Rachel as much more than a fling,” says the source. “This was supposed to be Maaten’s last Winter of fun before he turns 27 and gets serious and settled down,” they added. “The second he decided he’d spent last year December partying and being young, carefree and single while he still could be, he was introduced to Rachel by his cousin Princess Hamidah and his crazy party plans went out of the window and all of a sudden he’s acting like a contented married man. It’s a great sign—it shows how mature he is now and that he realizes when he finds happiness to not let go of it and to nurture it.”
And the feeling is mutual. Rachel is said to be head over heels in love with Prince Maaten already and has told friends that he’s “sweet, sensitive and so romantic.”
Prince Maaten and Rachel’s romantic holiday is about to end however as he’s expected back in Brunei later this week.
