Prince Albert Wins Magazine Battle

PRINCE ALBERT II of Monaco has won a legal battle with French showbiz magazine Paris Match, after they revealed he was father to an illegitimate son.

A Versailles, France court ordered the magazine's publishers Hachette Filipacchi (HF) to pay 50,000 euros ($58,900/GBP32,700) in damages to the monarch on 24 November (05), reports News agency Agence France Press (AFP).

The court also ordered HF to publish the case outcome in red letters across a white band, covering a third of the publication's front cover.

Last month's decision confirmed a lower court ruling in June (29JUN05) against the publishers, claiming their article about the prince's private life had violated French privacy laws and breached the prince's legal rights over ownership and distribution of photographer of his son ALEXANDRE and the child's mother NICOLE COSTE.

In a May (05) issue of Paris Match, former flight attendant Coste revealed the Prince was the father of her then 22-month-old tot. The Prince confirmed her story two months later and publicly recognised his role as a father on 6 July (05).
