Dakota and Elle Fanning, Dubiously Related to Kate Middleton

By

In some far distant land of the past, it is possible that Kate Middleton and the Fanning sisters (Dakota, Elle) had a common ancestor: King Edward I, known as Longshanks. He was King of England from 1272 to 1307. This makes the women 21st cousins, reports People. Michelle Ercanbrack, a family historian for Ancestry.com, said of Elle, "You can consider her a long-lost princess.” Sure. Long-lost Princess Longshanks.
