The prince states that hes got MONTAGUE IN HIS BLOOD, so he's a Montague.

Actually the prince does not say that he has "Montague in his blood" at all. He does say:

"Capulet, Montague, see what a scourge is laid upon your hate, that heaven finds means to kill your joys with love. And I, for winking at your discords too, have lost a brace of kinsmen."

Capulet and Montague have lost their "joys", their children. But the Prince has lost kinsmen over and above those, and just two of them (Mercutio and Paris). The Prince, Mercutio and Paris belong to a family that is neither Montague nor Capulet. That is why Mercutio says, "A plague on both your houses." He is cursing Montagues and Capulets, but not his own house, which is different.
