'Undercover Princes': Prince Manvendra Announces He Is 'Turning Bisexual' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

The "Undercover Princes" (Tue., 10 p.m. EST on TLC) have been exploring the U.K. dating scene incognito in the hope of meeting that someone special.

The trio -- from India, Sri Lanka and South Africa -- share an apartment in the coastal town of Brighton. The seaside resort's vibrant gay scene should, in theory, make it the perfect place for Prince Manvendra of Rajpipla to find love.

Manvendra was the first Indian royal to come out publicly as a gay man, after which his family tried to disinherit him.

However, after mulling over an idea, Manvendra had an unexpected announcement to make: "Breaking news of the day!" he said. "Manny is turning bisexual."

"I may be gay," he explained, "but I haven't actually had a girl in my life. So how can I say for sure that I'm gay?"

His roommate, Prince Remigius of Jaffna, looked understandably baffled by this change of orientation, so Manvendra tried to elaborate.

Up until now, he said, he'd always told himself he was gay, but now he thought he should double-check that by dating a girl for a change.

What did Remigius think he should do? "Why don't you try it," he suggested. "Then, because you've tried, then you know 100 percent what you want."

Cue the resident ladies' man, Prince Africa Zulu of Onkweni Royal House, who decided that Manvendra needed some help. He set up a role-playing exercise, with Manvendra trying to chat up a local girl (played by Remigius) while Africa coached from the sidelines.

Follow the "Undercover Princes" as they continue their quest for love, Tuesday nights at 10 p.m. EST on TLC.
