Rainier Outraged By Scandalous TV Report That . . . Princess Grace Was A
Prince Rainier of Monaco is furiously denying an investigation that
claims Princess Grace was a secret priestess in a bizarre sex cult!
Grace joined the Order of the Solar Temple just months before her death
in 1982, according to a blockbuster TV documentary.
They say she stripped and underwent a sexual initiation ceremony -- and
she handed over more than $9 million before she eventually turned
against the cult's charismatic leader shortly before she died following
a car accident.
"Grace was a woman of many secrets," said TV producer David Cohen, who
spent a year investigating the cult. "Her lovers are only one aspect of
the story. She was an extremely religious woman -- and it was her search
for spirituality that delivered her to the Order of the Solar Temple."
Prince Rainier "is furious about these claims," a Monaco insider told
"He thinks it's all just sensational rubbish to grab TV ratings and a
cheap shot at somebody who can't answer back," the insider said.
"He's convinced it never happened, and he is sure she couldn't have
given them so much money without him knowing. Prince Rainier is going to
make sure this program is never shown in Monaco."
The cult became notorious three years ago after 69 members in Canada and
Europe died in an apparent mass suicide, which now is being probed as
According to the program, Grace was not alone among the European upper
class duped by the Solar Temple. Many rich and powerful people in Monaco
and Europe were lured to join and then conned out of money by cult
leader Joseph di Mambro.
They were told the Order gave them special access to God during
ceremonies that involved part- Catholic, part-mystic mumbo jumbo.
Di Mambro convinced his recruits he was in touch with 33 spiritual
masters who watched over the world from the Himalayas. He also told
followers that they were reincarnated from biblical figures or saints.
Producers for the program -- to be aired in Britain this month -- say
their evidence comes from interviews with the cult leader's
chauffeur/security guard and an acupuncturist who stripped and prepared
Grace for the initiation ceremony.
When the Princess arrived at the ancient church in the South of France
for the rite, she was "frightened and apprehensive" at first.
But she was sexually aroused by the acupuncturist, then given a drugged
drink before being told to lie on a huge round altar in the church's
crypt during the ceremony.
One of the cult's top leaders, Luc Jouret, then declared her a "High
Priestess of the Order."
She was asked to donate $10 million. She paid $9 million, but soon had
Cohen said, "The notion of somebody as loved and respected as Princess
Grace joining a cult -- after undergoing the sexually loaded initiation
ceremony -- was hard to believe when we first stumbled across her secret
two years ago."
Despite Prince Rainier's strong denials, Cohen said he is convinced the
story is true.
Cohen claims Grace fought with di Mambro when she demanded her money
back, threatening to expose him as a fraud. Then she died.
"Her attitude frightened di Mambro," Cohen said. "It draws attention to
the mysterious circumstances of her death."
