    Simply not true. You need to brush up on your history.

    Wrong Lord Mountbatten.

    Lord Mountbatten was at least Bisexual, and thats neither straight or gay. But the first homosexual Royal was long ago, and history is littered with homosexual and bisexual royals.

    Yes for instance King James I (yes, THAT King James, the one they named a Bible translation after) had children but was also known to have carried on a homosexual affair with his cousin George Villars), placing him firmly in the bisexual camp.

    How are we defining "out" for the Royal Family? Publicly announced by that person him/herself, or assumed or rumored?

    It's often claimed that Edward II (1307-1327) was homosexual. And that several of his close male associates were his lovers. The future King's father, Edward I, at one point had the Prince's closest male friend exiled to France, for reasons that are unclear. He later returned, only to be executed by the English Barons a few years later. Who were struggling with Edward II for dominance, and later deposed the King in 1327.

    These actions, and the contemporary references & rumors (one chronicle speaks of Edward II as a "sodomite"), could all be politically motivated. But they did exist. Meanwhile, the current Queen's cousin Lord Mountbatten has publicly declared himself to be gay, and that may be a first.

    He's been married with children, BTW. Maybe he can meet the only bona-fide homosexual in the British Commonwealth, RJ's God-Said from Australia. Who contends only pure gays like himself who have never even dated a woman can really be homosexuals. All the others are bisexual or straight pretenders. Their discussion together would be interesting.

    I presume he is the grandson of Lord Louis Mountbatten. Is that correct? Realistically he is not of the royal family.

    Oh Bobby boo boo . You really do struggle with being a bisexual; you need to own that mate. One has no issue with being born a Bona Fide Homosexual, and like it or not, that is a diffrent tribe to yours. Who said anything about dating? Us Bona Fide Homosexuals, simply were not wired to screw women, as you were. Oh Bobby Boo boo, we are also throughout the Commonwealth and the world; so suckit up, as we take nothing from u, but you want to deprive us of an identity, all because you don't qualify half brother. Standing under the banner of gay doesn't erase your many, many years living as a breeding hetrosexual. We Bona Fide Homosexuals, never had the wife and kids, to go with a look of being normal; pfft.
