Just like celebrities, famously private royals also find themselves the subject of love affair tell-alls at times. And in the case of these blue bloods, the rumours of illegitimate children eventually turned out to be true. So how did they handle it and where are their kids now? 1. Prince Albert of Monaco’s daughter Jazmin Grace Grimaldi Prince Albert and his wife Princess Charlene of Monaco share two children together, the adorable seven-year-old twins Gabriela and Jacques . But the prince’s eldest child is Jazmin Grace-Grimaldi, now 29 . Albert met the actress and singer’s waitress mother, Tamara Rotolo, when she was on holiday on the Côte d’Azur. She raised their daughter back home in the US and Jazmin wasn’t in contact with her dad until she turned 11 years old. Albert confirmed that he was her father a few years later in 2006. Now she travels the world thanks to her film roles and philanthropic work with the United Nations and with The Jazmin Fund, her own charity that helps women in remote villages in Fiji. Grace Grimaldi enjoys a close relationship with her half-siblings and they were recently all pictured together.

Prince Albert of Monaco’s son Alexandre Grimaldi-Coste Alexandre Grimaldi-Coste is an 18-year-old model gaining more media attention as suspicion around the state of Prince Albert and Charlene’s marriage grows. He made his debut on the country’s scene in July when he attended the Monaco Red Cross Ball. His mother, Nicole Coste, met the royal on a flight to Nice in 1997 when she worked as cabin crew and the pair enjoyed a five-year romance. Like his half-sister Jazmin, Grimaldi-Coste is not an heir to the throne but does have rights to Albert’s billion-dollar fortune. He also has two half-siblings on his mother’s side.

King Albert II of Belgium’s daughter Delphine Boël Another Albert II had an illegitimate child under different circumstances. The Belgian monarch was married to Paola Ruffo di Calabria, an Italian princess, when he had an affair with Baroness Sybille de Selys Longchamps. Delphine – who now has two teenage children, Princess Josephine and Prince Oscar, with her American husband – was born in 1968.

But that was not before the artist made a name for herself on Belgium’s Dancing With the Stars and created controversial artwork with the slogans “Love Child” and “F*** You, I Exist”.

Prince Carlos Duke of Parma’s son Prince Carlos Hugo Klynstra King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands’ cousin Prince Carlos, head of the House of Bourbon-Parma, had a son with his childhood friend Brigitte Klynstra but claimed that the pair had agreed the child would not get a title. In 2018, when their son was aged 21, Bridgette and her son won a 19-year battle to claim the title of His Royal Highness Prince Carlos Hugo Roderik Sybren de Bourbon de Parme. 5. Mark Phillips’ daughter Felicity Tonkin Princess Anne married Captain Mark Phillips in 1973 and the pair had two children – Peter and Zara. However, in 1991 – while the couple were separated but had vowed to stay married – it was revealed that he had fathered a child with New Zealand teacher Heather Tonkin in 1985. Lilibet to Savannah: 6 royal baby names that broke tradition The equestrian publicly denied the love child but it soon emerged that he had been sending them US$8,000 annually for five years and a court-ordered DNA test proved the paternity. He ended up paying a US$475,000 settlement, though Felicity – who reportedly thought her father was dead until she was eight years old – still has little contact with her half-siblings, according to the British tabloids. But she still had a royal stepmother until 1992 when Anne and Phillips divorced. Now Tonkin is married and has a child with polo player Tristan Wade. Want more stories like this?
