John Kerry, the actress and a Royal connection

An intriguing connection exists between John Kerry, the senator who is running for the American presidency, and the British Royal Family.

During the early Nineties, before he married his present wife Teresa Heinz, Kerry enjoyed a brief romance with Catherine Oxenberg, the actress who played Joan Collins’s daughter Amanda Carrington in the TV series Dynasty.

She is also a second cousin of Prince Charles through her Chelsea-based mother, Princess Elizabeth of Yugoslavia.

At around that time, when Catherine was 31, she gave birth to daughter India, the identity of whose father she has never revealed. Soon after India’s birth, she surprised friends by marrying Love Story director Robert Evans, but their ill-fated union lasted just two weeks.

Less than a year later she married actor Casper Van Dien, with whom she now lives quietly in Malibu.

Although she has been the subject of numerous interviews connected with her acting career, Catherine has always refused to talk about the paternity of India, who is now 12. But as John Kerry gets closer to the White House, she is aware that there is bound to be increased speculation over his former relationships.

‘John is very attractive to women and at the time Catherine was bowled over by him,’ says an Oxenberg family friend. ‘They had a brief fling which ended on civilised terms. But shortly after they broke up Catherine surprised everyone by quietly disappearing off to India on her own.

‘It turned out she had discovered she was pregnant and decided to go away, far away from everyone she knew, to have the baby. She named her India simply because that was where she was born. She has never said who the father is and she has even taken legal action to protect his identity.’

A relation of Miss Oxenberg’s said: ‘Catherine is not ashamed of having been involved with John Kerry quite the opposite. They were both single at the time and their lives have moved on.

‘She has certainly never fallen out with him and is following his presidential campaign with great interest.’ – Source
