Prince had only one known child, a boy who died in 1996 a week after birth. To test the claim of anyone who comes forward now, Carver County District Judge Kevin Eide has authorized genetic testing on a sample of Prince’s blood now held by the medical examiner’s office. Eide hasn’t yet ruled on a request from Bremer Trust, the special administrator overseeing the estate, to let Bremer set up the protocol for exactly how to handle claimants. Bremer is proposing that those people submit affidavits backing up their relationship to Prince, and then agree to blood and genetic testing — at their expense.
