Many Disney fans ask themselves, how many Disney Princes are there?

Only one prince is royalty by marriage, Aladdin. The final two princes, John Smith and Li Shang, are not royalty by birthright or marriage.
All Disney Princes have a unique story. Some stories are rags to riches, and others are about appreciating what you have. One thing they all have in common is finding true love. ❤️
Prince Florian (The Prince)
The Prince appears in the classic fairy tale Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and his love for Snow White is evident. He is shown with short brown hair and an athletic, handsome build. Florian is the first Disney Prince.
As he travels near the castle, he hears Snow White singing with her beautiful singing voice and can’t help but love what he hears. He joins her in singing the song, but she gets scared and runs into the castle.
He continues to sing under her balcony after falling in love with her. However, they don’t meet again after this until Snow White gets poisoned by the evil Witch.
The central theme here is the Prince’s love for the princess. The Prince brings her back from her deep sleep with a True Loves kiss.
They ride into the sunset, get married, and live happily ever after. Love brings them together, and the same love enables them to stand against all odds and be happy together forever.
Prince Charming (Prince Henry)
Prince Charming is a popular one. He appears in Cinderella as the Prince pursuing Cinderella. Just like his name suggests, he appears as the most handsome one among the princes of Disney. He is shown with short brown hair combed over and a tall stature.
His family pressures Prince Charming to marry, and after finding no suitable matches, he comes up with an idea on his own. He decides to throw a royal ball and invite all of the single ladies in the Kingdom to attend the dance and meet him in person.
Prince Charming meets Cinderella at the royal ball and is immediately mesmerized by her beauty and grace. They share a dance and begin to fall in love. The two develop a strong connection in a short time at the royal ball.
Their time together is cut short at midnight as the spell her Fairy Godmother performed ends. Cinderella flees to protect her identity and not be embarrassed. Her carriage turns back into a pumpkin, and her beautiful ball gown turns back to her raggedy cleaning maid dress.
After the royal ball, Prince Charming’s love for Cinderella is undeniable, and he must find her so they can be together. As Cinderella fled at midnight, she lost a glass slipper. Charming announced that whoever the shoe fit would be his Princess.
Eventually, the Grand Duke makes his way to Cinderella’s house, and she tries on the slipper, which is a perfect fit. Prince Charming and Cinderella are finally together, and their love blossoms as they get married and live happily ever after.
Prince Phillip is the handsome Prince in Sleeping Beauty. He is shown with short brown hair, slender, and tall. From the onset, Prince Phillip’s love for Princess Aurora is evident. Ever since childhood, one could tell they were destined to be together.
Phillip and Aurora are intentionally separated at a young age for Princess Aurora’s protection against Maleficent’s curse on her. Fate has a way of bringing them back together, and they have a chance to meet in the forest, which rekindles their love.
Although they don’t remember each other from childhood, they feel something familiar and fall deeply in love. When Aurora turns 16, Maleficent’s curse sends Princess Aurora into a deep sleep.
With the good fairy’s help, Prince Philip battles the evil Maleficient and eventually wins. With True Love’s first kiss, he awakens Sleeping Beauty, bringing Aurora back to life, and they live happily ever after.
Prince Eric is the Prince in The Little Mermaid. Eric is human and has medium to long black hair. Eric falls in love with Ariel after she saves him from drowning. She sings to him, and as he slowly recovers, she swims away to protect her true identity.
Eric’s deep love for Ariel encourages him to make a vow that he will never marry any other person apart from the one who saved him. The one with the beautiful voice is the one that he will marry.
Ariel ends up selling her voice to Ursula, the sea witch, in exchange for legs. When Ariel comes to the shore as a human who can’t speak, it is difficult for Eric to recognize her.
The fact that she didn’t have the same beautiful voice she once had when Ariel met Eric for the first time made it hard for Eric to recognize her. Later, Ursula turns into a beautiful lady, Vanessa, and uses Ariel’s voice to lure Eric to marry her.
Just before Eric marries Ursula, Ariel appears at the wedding and manages to get her voice back. Ursula tries to break the love between Eric and Ariel, but in the end, the Prince and Princess win the love they both deeply desire.
