Príncipe Azul

If you watch children’s programs here long enough you will hear a reference to Príncipe Azul. Translated literally it means blue prince. But its significance is Prince Charming, just like in the fairy tales, or the ideal man.

I’m not completely sure why blue is used but some things I have read say it could refer to the phrase blue blood meaning aristocracy. This seems a reasonable connection to me.

Does anyone else have any suggestions about the origins?
