Lord Ivar Mountbatten

Minor Royal Comes Out

hist-b-2Lord Ivar Mountbatten, great-great-great grandson of Queen Victoria and cousin to the current Queen has come out as bisexual.

In an exclusive interview with the Mail on Sunday, Lord Ivar Mountbatten (53) has said that he is bisexual. Acknowledging that he had struggled with his sexuality, Mountbatten revealed that his ex-wife Penny, with whom he has three children, had known of his sexuality when they married in 1994, and had been supportive of his decision to come out.

“Everyone in our family knows and could not be more supportive, ” he said.

Despite Mountbatten using the word ‘bisexual’ to describe himself, the rabble-rousing tabloid chose to repeatedly label him as gay in both headline and article. Pink News, the Independent, and the majority of the British and American press has chosen to follow suit.
