Lady Gabreilla Windsor’s ex boyfriend Aatish Taseer caused shock when he wrote an article claiming to have taken ecstasy in Kensington Palace.
He also revealed numerous details about the royal’s parents, first cousin of the Queen, Prince Michael and his wife Princess Michael.
Aatish is a writer and journalist, 38, born in Britain.
His parents are Indian journalist Tavleen Singh and Pakistani politician Salmaan Taseer – and he grew up in New Delhi.
He met Lady Gabriella while he was studying a degree in French and Political Science at Amherst College in Massachusetts.
Lady Gabriella was studying at Brown University at the time.
Aatish describes himself on his Twitter account as: “Contributing opinion writer for the int’l @nytimes and most recently the author of The Twice-Born.”
Aatish Taseer and Lady Gabriella’s romance made headlines when he wrote a shocking expose about the royal and her family.
He made a number of controversial claims about his time with the daughter of Prince Michael.
Aatish wrote an article for Vanity Fair in May entitled Race and the Royals: An Outsider’s View Inside Kensington Palace.
In the piece he claimed to have taken MDMA in Windsor Castle and to have swum naked at Buckingham Palace.
He wrote: “It was a wonderful way to spend one’s 20s.”
In the same piece he discussed the outcry that ensued when Princess Michael wore a ‘racist’ brooch in December 2017 to the first official royal event Meghan Markle, whose mother is African American, attended with her then fiance Prince Harry.
She wore a blackamoor brooch, figures that were popular in the 17th and 18th centuries and usually depict African men.
Aatish described Princess Michael as: “Marie Antoinette in a nation that finds bananas too exotic.”
The Royal Family have made no official comment on the article, but a spokesperson for Prince and Princess Michael of Kent told The Daily Mail: “There won’t be any comment on the story.”
How Aatish is married to his partner Ryan Davis.
Princess Michael of Kent’s wedding to Prince Michael took place in Vienna on 30 June 1978.
Princess Michael wore a pretty lace dress with bishop’s sleeves and a high neck.
