Shocked? Well don’t be too shocked we will break it down to you how this lovebird’s turn out to be each other’s cousin.
The Family tree of the British monarch is a
real crazy thing. See for yourself! Meghan is from USA and Prince Harry as we
all know is from UK. But yes though they are from the different parts of the
earth we live in the royal family tree has proved us they are actually each
other’s cousin. They are 15th cousin to each other according to the family
The couple is connected through English ancestor of the Queen Mother. You will have to go back to fifteenth century you will find Ralph Bowes, the High Sheriff of Durham. Then after continuing the journey for this long, in the twentieth century you will find the Queen mother. Then the Queen, Prince Charles and his son Prince Harry! And for Meghan you will be able to see her paternal grandmother Doris Sanders.
Still confusing? Let’s make this thing easy for you. From Harry’s side the lineage is the Queen Mother and from Meghan’s side it is through her father Thomas Markle. They both share the 14th great grandparents!
This is not the first time this family tree has given news something like this. Queen Elizabeth and her Husband Prince Philip were related too. It is pretty much confusing though and seems like messing with head. But if seen keenly the royal family tree is really fascinating.
