A retired person, living in Portugal, appeals for the Queen’s DNA to verify that his forefathers were also a heir to the kingship at times of Edward VIII. He had asked for the samples in 2004 and 2013 as well, and now for the third time he again comes up with the same demand but now he warns that if his demand is overlooked, he is likely to sue the Buckingham Palace.
Mr. Graftieaux, 73, announces that his grandma Ms. Marie Leonie remained in a relationship with Edward VIII, and Graftieaux’s father was their son. He states that if his declaration gets confirmed then that means that he and his family are also successors to the throne. His bold statement came out of just having facial similarity with Edward VIII. However, he started exploring his familial record after 1994, when his father Edouard died.
“I will take whatever step is needed to safeguard the legacy and integrity of our family”, Mr. Francois states, and not just this, he also proclaims that he will try to highlight the Royal Sex Scandal of its time. He admits that while he and his father don’t have any explicit entitlement to the throne as the king had been renounced, but still he wants to prove his predecessor’s identity.
Moreover, he is not asking for any sort of reward or ownership, neither money nor supremacy, what he needs is just acknowledgment of his family as a part of the British Royalties’ ancestral history.
He says that it is most likely that the palace won’t cooperate with him, but he would be very much pleased to go for legal assistance. Under the criminal act, the royalties of Britain cannot be indicted or charged, yet he might be able to file a lawsuit against the palace.
