More than 100 pieces of global coverage for the French author and Queen’s ‘cousin, Francois Graftieaux

Palamedes PR was appointed by retired French hotelier Francois Graftieaux to highlight his extraordinary (and alleged) claim of Royal lineage. Mr Graftieaux believes that his late father, Pierre-Edouard, was the secret lovechild of King Edward VIII and his grandmother, Marie-Leonie Graftieaux. If true, this would make Mr Graftieaux a cousin to the Queen and the first in line of succession for the British throne. Mr Graftieaux published his claim in The King’s Son: The True Story of the Duke of Windsor’s Only Son, the book we were promoting (below). He has since threatened to take legal action against Buckingham Palace if it fails to launch a formal investigation into his alleged claim to the throne.

The Kings Son
