Further global coverage for ‘Queen’s cousin’, Francois Graftieaux

There has been further global coverage for Francois Graftieaux, the Frenchman who claims that he is the ‘Queen’s cousin’.

A wide range of publications across Europe and beyond have reported on Mr Graftieaux’s astonishing claim to be the secret grandson of King Edward VIII.

These include the French-language version of Closer Magazine, AOL, and Germany title Gala. It adds to significant exposure within the UK national press, including The Daily Mail, The Sun, Daily Mirror, Metro and Daily Express.

Mr Graftieaux, a client of book PR agency Palamedes PR, made the headlines last week when he called upon Buckingham Palace to launch an investigation into his claim.

It is his belief that, over a period of two years during the First World War,  King Edward VIII, then the Prince of Wales, had an affair with his grandmother, Marie-Leonie Graftieaux, while stationed in Paris and which resulted in a child, his late father, Pierre-Edouard.

His compelling case is detailed in new book The King’s Son, authored by J. J. Barrie, which is out now.
