Latest news, rumors ... from Monaco!

The Spanish edition of Vanity Fair is reporting a new twist (and turn) in Monaco.   According to this report, which is published on their website,  Nicole Coste, the Togolese former flight attendant, who is the mother Albert's six-year-old son, Alexandre, turned up in Monaco four days before the wedding, after trying to contact the prince "a thousand ways."   She traveled to Monaco, and tried to enter the palace, but the palace guards would not let her in.

Nicole allegedly made a scene and started screaming.  Apparently, Charlene heard the screams, and she went to the courtyard to speak with Nicole.

The topic of the conversation is not known.  Nicole turned around and left.  The future princess "was never the same."

The source for this story is said to be "a very close friend to the royal family."  French news organizations -- not tabloids -- have reported the claims of an Italian woman, the mother of an 18-month-old child, and Nicole, who may have had a second child with Albert three years ago. 

Nicole and her son have been living in subsidized housing in Villefranche-sur-Mer not too far from Monaco, but there are reports that state she and Alexandre are now living in Switzerland.

And where are the newlyweds?  According to French news sources, the Prince and Princess flew to Kenya on Wednesday.

Queen Mary says from beyond the grace: "Really! This might be Romania."

It will be interesting to see what emerges as the truth, after the honeymooners return home, and Albert takes the test.

Maybe some money will secretly change hands and the whole matter will suddenly become quiet.
If true, it's fascinating that there might be two additional offspring out there.
