Cassel was one of the richest and most powerful men in Europe.He was then to leave the bulk of his vast fortune to Edwina, his elder granddaughter.
They had what is generally considered to be an open marriage as BOTH Lord Louis Mountbatten and Edwina were promiscuous Bisexuals Both reportedly had male and female lovers and stuffy Louis was a pedophile to boot Mountbattens “Naval career” was a great cover for his gay lifestyle So many men stuck on a boat and gay Louis Mounthisbatton !! As teenagers he and his cousin the future King George went on worldwide trip of the British empire together It seems they showered together sometimes ……
In the book “War of the Windsors ” it is claimed that strong rumours had even linked Mountbatten with the notorious scandal surrounding the Kincora Boys’ Home , where a network of teenage boys were made available to VIPs. It states: “Of all the recent Royals, none was so consistently immoral and unprincipled as the late Lord Mountbatten. ”
Both he and his wife Edwina were bisexual, and they led a life of unbridled promiscuity. He was also said to have an interest in what homosexuals call ‘rough trade’ and to be particularly attracted to working-class boys in their early teens.”
During his stint as Viceroy Mountbatten was rumored to have sodomized poor impoverished Indian teenage boys Source
Into this viscous promiscuous “open marriage” stepped Indias hero the great “Chacha (Uncle)Nehru” . A womanizer himself Nehru was straight and is rumoured to have had an affair with Edwina Cassel Mountbatten (with bisexual Louis probably not joining them) . The Congress Party leadership tussle in the late 1940s was between Nehru and Patel with the final decision being Gandhi”s . Despite Patel being a fellow Gujarati, Gandhi chose Nehru
Although Partition had already been decided by Churchill , Jinnah and Viceroy Wavell , the SHAPE of what India and Pakistan would look like and the future of Kashmir were very much open questions which Louis Mountbatten decided To what extend his slutty bisexual wife influenced Nehru to go along with him is an open question . Mountbatten also managed to completely change Nehru”s mind on a matter which had no practical relevance but which mattered to the British Royalty ………India’s continuation in the Commonwealth
