¡Se acerca la Primera boda real del mismo sexo!

Lord Ivar Mountbatten ha anunciado boda con su pareja este verano. El primo de Isabel II ha sido el primer hombre ligado a la familia real en anunciar que es gay

Lord Ivar Mountbatten da el primer paso. Es el primer hombre en la historia vinculado a una familia real que se casará con una persona del mismo sexo. El primo tercero de la reina Isabel II anunció hace algunos años que es gay, y ahora ha anunciado su boda con otro hombre.

James Coyle será el afortunado novio que complete la pareja gay que hará historia en una capilla privada de la finca de Devon, en el sur de Gran Bretaña, propiedas de Lord Ivar. La boda se celebrará este verano.

Las relaciones de Lord Ivar con la familia real van por partida doble, pues además de primo tercero de la reina Isabel II, es primo hermano del príncipe Felipe, duque de Edimburgo y rey consorte del Reino Unido.

Además de ser el primer allegado a la familia real del Reino Unido en asumir públicamente una relación sentimental con una persona del mismo sexo, Lord Ivar ya ha estado casado.

Su separación de Penelope Thompson, de cuyo matrimonio de 16 años resultaron tres hijas, se consumó hace dos años luego de que asumiera ser gay tras duras batalles internas.

Queen’s cousin becomes first member of royal family to come out as gay. ** * A member of the Royal Family has become the first ever to come out as #gay. * #LordIvarMountbatten, who has three children with ex-wife Penelope (Penny) Thompson, came out over the weekend saying he had struggled with his sexuality. * But now, he said he was happy to now be in a partnership with #JamesCoyle, an airline cabin services director. * The couple met while skiing in Verbier, #Switzerland. * James shouted hello to Lord Mountbatten, who is something like 700th in line to the throne, thinking he was a guide he’d been skiing with earlier. There was a mutual attraction and it all snowballed from there. * ‘Penny was aware before we got married,’ he told the Mail on Sunday. ‘I told her I was bisexual, that my attraction went both ways. She was understanding and I will always be grateful to her. * ‘”Coming out” is such a funny phrase but it’s what I suppose I did in a rather roundabout way, emerging to a place I’m happy to be. I have struggled with my sexuality and in some ways I still do; it has been a real journey to reach this point.’ * He added: ‘Being a Mountbatten was never the problem. It was the generation into which I was born. When I was growing up, it was known as “the love that dare not speak its name”, but what’s amazing now is how far we have all come in terms of acceptance.’ * #phcity #phcitytraffic #portharcourt #lagos #abuja #africa #blogger #wesafrica #africa #riversstate #nigeria #regrann

“La ceremonia en sí será muy pequeña. Realmente es solo para las chicas y los familiares cercanos y amigos”, declaró Lord Ivar a Daily Mail.
