Royal controversy The Prince"s personal life has been under considerable scrutiny for much of his life. A bachelor until recently, the Prince has been involved in a number of scandals. A frequent rumor spread about the Prince is that he is a homosexual. The Prince has denied these allegations repeatedly and it seems clear that they are patently false. This is the case because Prince Albert is the known father of at least two children out of wedlock. Both times the mother came forward to the press and with legal action. Both times ge.ic testing proved that Prince Albert was the biological father. Prince Albert has acknowledged his parentage to these illegitimate children and has taken some measure of responsibility. His first illegitimate daughter is known to have an open invitation to live and study in Monaco. Prince Albert has expressed affection for his illegitimate children publicly and by European and Mongasque law, they are entitled to part of his personal fortune in excess of one billion dollars.
