This cult is similar to Illuminati.
Prince Rainier of Monaco is furiously denying an investigation that claims Princess Grace was a secret priestess in a bizarre sex cult!
Grace joined the Order of the Solar Temple just months before her death in 1982, according to a blockbuster TV documentary.
They say she stripped and underwent a sexual initiation ceremony -- and she handed over more than $9 million before she eventually turned against the cult's charismatic leader shortly before she died following a car accident.
"Grace was a woman of many secrets," said TV producer David Cohen, who spent a year investigating the cult. "Her lovers are only one aspect of the story. She was an extremely religious woman -- and it was her search for spirituality that delivered her to the Order of the Solar Temple."
Prince Rainier "is furious about these claims," a Monaco insider told The ENQUIRER.
"He thinks it's all just sensational rubbish to grab TV ratings and a cheap shot at somebody who can't answer back," the insider said.
"He's convinced it never happened, and he is sure she couldn't have given them so much money without him knowing. Prince Rainier is going to make sure this program is never shown in Monaco."
The cult became notorious three years ago after 69 members in Canada and Europe died in an apparent mass suicide, which now is being probed as mass murder.
According to the program, Grace was not alone among the European upper class duped by the Solar Temple. Many rich and powerful people in Monaco and Europe were lured to join and then conned out of money by cult leader Joseph di Mambro.
They were told the Order gave them special access to God during ceremonies that involved part- Catholic, part-mystic mumbo jumbo.
Di Mambro convinced his recruits he was in touch with 33 spiritual masters who watched over the world from the Himalayas. He also told followers that they were reincarnated from biblical figures or saints.
Producers for the program -- to be aired in Britain this month -- say their evidence comes from interviews with the cult leader's chauffeur/security guard and an acupuncturist who stripped and prepared Grace for the initiation ceremony.
When the Princess arrived at the ancient church in the South of France for the rite, she was "frightened and apprehensive" at first.
But she was sexually aroused by the acupuncturist, then given a drugged drink before being told to lie on a huge round altar in the church's crypt during the ceremony.
One of the cult's top leaders, Luc Jouret, then declared her a "High Priestess of the Order."
She was asked to donate $10 million. She paid $9 million, but soon had second thoughts.
Cohen said, "The notion of somebody as loved and respected as Princess Grace joining a cult -- after undergoing the sexually loaded initiation ceremony -- was hard to believe when we first stumbled across her secret two years ago."
Despite Prince Rainier's strong denials, Cohen said he is convinced the story is true.
Cohen claims Grace fought with di Mambro when she demanded her money back, threatening to expose him as a fraud. Then she died.
"Her attitude frightened di Mambro," Cohen said. "It draws attention to the mysterious circumstances of her death."
