Skip to comments.Prince Albert of Monaco faces paternity test after wedding (newly weds leave in "green car")
Posted on 07/02/2011 2:17:33 PM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
The wedding was a glittering affair, the likes of which have not been seen since Prince Rainier III married Hollywood icon Grace Kelly in Monaco more than half a century ago.
....But as the couple took their vows, Prince Alberts colourful past threatened to overshadow the proceedings.
It has now been revealed that, following the couple's civil ceremony, a senior palace official confirmed rumours that Prince Albert is likely to undergo the test after claims that he has fathered a third child.
....Albert already has a six-year-old son, Alexandre, through a former Togolese air hostess, Nicole Coste, and a 19-year-old daughter, Jazmin, with Tamara Rotola, an American estate agent.
Despite the development, none of Alberts illegitimate children will have a claim to the throne under Monaco law, a source said. Even if a third or even a fourth child is confirmed Albert will not have an official heir until Princess Charlene bears him one, he added.
The French magazine, Public, has claimed that Prince Albert fathered two new illegitimate children, saying one is understood to be 18 months old and the son of an Italian woman who is preparing to take her story to the press.
Other publications, including Voici, have suggested that Miss Coste could have had a second baby to the Prince. The 40-year old raised eyebrows on Thursday when she was pictured in Monte Carlo on the eve of the wedding.
But for all the background rumours Monaco still basked in glittering pomp and majesty.
.....Seconds before, they had renounced Satan and proclaimed their Christian faith, while Charlene smiled as the archbishop referred to fidelity and forgiveness.
... the newly-weds left the palace in an low-emission, open-top hybrid Lexus LS 600h L car a nod to the Princes green convictions.

It’s good to be a Prince.
I saw some of the wedding today. Everybody looked very tense and upset, including the bride and groom.
I hope they didn’t give Charlene the “tea towels are already monogramed” baloney.
What a farce.
Obama would agree, but he went straight from community organizer to King (I don’t count the “present” months he spent in the Illinois Senate).
The story continues...
Yeah the hawt babe really married him for his looks. /s
And if she's infertile?
Tammy Wynette is waiting in the wings!
He looks like Tim Conway in that picture.
Worse yet, she’s fertile but produces only girls?
Then one of his sisters’ male heir takes over, as I’ve heard (there is at least one boy.)
No chance for you or me, in other words. It’s a fix!
How did her kids become such royal screw-ups?
what a mess.
Incredible that this is Princess Grace’s son. What a genetic crap shoot.
Not so sure about that. Some of those nieces and nephews are illigitimate too. And I’m not sure that either sister is married to their fathers.
