Ellen's "Soon-To-Be" Royal Ties!

Yes, it's true!  Ellen announced on her show, Wednesday, that she is a distant cousin of Kate Middleton.  People magazine reported that a letter was sent to Ellen, from a Tom Champoux, of The New England Historic Genealogical Society, that stated,

"Our trusty genealogists have been at work on Kate Middleton's genealogy.  As we were doing the research, we discovered that you are related to Kate via a man named Sir Thomas Fairfax and his wife Agnes Gascoigne," the letter continued. "You are distant cousins – 15th – but cousins still the same."

You can imagine how excited Ellen was, as she has been (jokingly) trying to get an invite to the royal wedding anyway, now she thinks she's a shoe in!  She said on her show,

"I'm related to Kate!  I'm definitely invited to the wedding now!  Kate, 'Cuz, let me know where you're registered," she said jokingly. "I have a Pier 1 and a Target real, real close to my house."

Oh Ellen, you're so cute!  Do you think she'll get an invite?
