Perfectly honourable to ogle the dead. We ogle the images of those who died centuries ago, a few years don't make any difference. Beauty is beauty. Part of his beauty was how he inhabited his body, so one has to imagine him alive: necrophilia is not honourable.
I agree that he was a rich (and probably spoiled) guy who didn't do much, but equally, he was cut off in his prime and might have done good if he'd lived. Ogling is not admiring.
