Our Royal Cousins


For some time I have known of this connection. I wanted to make sure that the rest of the family has this information. It is just fun to know. Unfortunately, there are no royal perks! 😉 FYI, I have heard it reported that there are about 250,000 American cousins to Princess Diana, so it isn’t a super exclusive club, though “descen­dants of John Strong can claim almost 100 notable kin from the more than 250 whose lines of ascen­dancy as pre­sented in Gary Boyd Roberts’ “The New Eng­land Ances­try of H.R.H. The Princess of Wales.”09051303More Information:

    Fascinating! Diana wasn’t the Duchess of Cambridge, that was a title bestowed on her son. She had 4 titles but was mostly known as the Princess of Wales.

Tell me what you think.
