If all you had to go on was the royal couples from Game of Thrones… ??We wouldn’t blame you for thinking that monarchies have… ~cough~ interesting family trees.??In the real world though, it’s not quite that bad.??But Princess Diana and Prince Charles were actually distant relatives.??Both descendants of Henry the 7th… or 16th cousins once removed??Just for some perspective, Henry the 6th died before columbus even thought about coming to america.
??But even though the British Royal family recently started letting commoners into the monarchy with Kate Middleton’s entry in 2011.
??Her and William are also technically related… by Sir Thomas Leighton.
??Who died in 1610… which makes them 12th cousins once removed.??I guess if you look back far enough, you’re bound to find some relation to just about everyone.??But it just goes to show how important that Markle DNA is going to be for the royal gene pool.
