Prince Albert of Monacos new wife Charlene Wittstock has reportedly banned her playboy husband from seeing his legion of ex-lovers.
Rumours of a marriage rift erupted after reports that Princess Charlene,33,tried to flee Monaco two days before the wedding after learning of her husbands love child.
After being talked down by palace officials,the couple married in July before being hit by further claims they spent a night in separate hotels on their honeymoon.
But the Princess is now reported to be stamping her authority on her new husband,who has two illegitimate children and has been accused of fathering a third while he was engaged.
After finally putting on a show of unity last week,the Prince has been given pretty clear demands from his wife if their new love is to last.
Under his new strict instructions,the 53-year-old will apparently not be allowed to contact Nicole Coste,the Togo airhostess who gave birth to Alberts love child in 2003.
Paris Match magazine claimed this week that the former South African Olympic swimmer had Coste,struck off the guest list to Monacos lavish Red Cross ball.
Charlene had to tolerate the presence of Ms Coste during last years Red Cross ball when they were engaged, the Daily Mail quote a source close to the Monaco Royal palace as telling the magazine.
But now they are married,she has put her foot down and had Ms Coste struck off the guest list.
She does not want to give her the status of a privileged guest at an official function,and does not want Albert to consort socially with any of his previous lovers, the source added.
