I was not especially surprised to learn that Meghan Markle has an ancestral tie to the Royal Family.
Australian teacher and amateur historian, Michael Reed’s study on the modern Royal Family revealed an alleged connection between Markle and royalty of Tudor in England.
According to the UK Daily Telegraph, an obscure character by the name of Lord Hussey was the great-great-great-grandfather of Captain Christopher Hussey, who left England in the 1650s to become a Founding Father of Nantucket.
Ten generations later, in a new family tree in America, came Thomas W Markle, who married Doria Ragland to produce Meghan Markle [link].
Really. If this is the case, Meghan Markle’s ancestral tie to Captain Christopher Hussey represents just 0.0977 percent of her genes. Need I go further another five generations to Lord Hussey?
