A member of the Royal Family has become the first ever to come out as gay.
Lord Ivar 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 sexual partnership with James Coyle, an airline cabin services director.
The couple met while skiing in Verbier, Switzerland.
On how his ex-wife Penelope accepted his sexuality, he said:
"Penny was aware before we got married. I told her I was bisexual, that my attraction went both ways.
"She was understanding and I will always be grateful to her," said Mountbatten, who is the great-great-great-grandson of Queen Victoria.
"'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."
Earlier this year Prince William became the first member of the royal family to give an interview to a gay magazine.
