Vancouver, British Columbia (AP) – Since arriving in this port city, s cousin of Britain's Princess Diana has been arrested, fallen for a former stripper who manages his $12-a-night hostel and decided to sell his title.
“My title is up for sale,” said Baron Alexander Montagu, 28-year-old son of the Duke of Manchester, “I'd prefer to give it to someone who would use it properly.” He wouldn't name a price but expects something in the millions.
Montagu is second cousin to the Princess of Wales. A member of Britain's House of Lord's, he is 56th in line to the throne.
Montagu says he's in love with Katie Lynch, 38, who told the Province newspaper she's a former stripper.
He was arrested for allegedly entering Canada illegally from Hong Kong on June 17th. Immigration officials say he failed to disclose 29 criminal convictions for fraud and assault in Australia.
