Prince William and Kate Middleton Kissing Cousins!

Prince William and Kate Middleton, girlfriend and possible future queen, are apparently cousins! Granted, the relationship is very, very distant, but it turns out the two lovebirds are actually related, weirdly enough.

Kate Middleton and Prince William reportedly share a much-reviled ancestor by the name of Sir Thomas Leighton. Leighton was allegedly governor of Guernsey in the 17th century and a horrible murdering tyrant. According to the Daily Mail, Leighton is Prince William’s 12th generation great-grandfather and Kate Middleton’s 11th generation great-grandfather. That supposedly makes them 12th cousins, once removed.

We doubt anyone will really care a bit that the two share a distant ancestor. After all, back in the day the royal throne was occupied by the offspring of all kinds of incestuous relationships.

We’re sure plenty of folks on the planet are probably married to some kind of cousin and don’t know it. They just don’t have people trolling through their genealogy to find the least little connection they can dig up!

Although, if you look closely, the two do rather kind of look alike a bit… especially in the nose and cheekbones. Hmmmmm.

One thought on “Prince William and Kate Middleton Kissing Cousins!”

  1. I would love to know where this came from as people have been researching this for years.. and the whole time they were dating there was NO mention of this and now it just happens to pop up — for those of us who actually do our research and use Burke’s Peerage as an OFFICIAL book her ancestors are NOT listed in there! There is no listed William Davenport who married a Grace Galloway listed in any of the history books… where is this crap coming from?! Burke’s was published way back before Kate was even born.. like decades ago.. this is not correct! This ‘correction’ must be done by the Queen or someone who is trying to make her more ‘dignified’. Even stirnet says it’s not listed but are now listing it because it’s coming from the press and news.
