8 Celebrities Who Are Royalties

Aрраrеntlу some of Hollywood biggest stars hаvе royal blood flowing through them. Just like a fairytale, these celebrities are actually descendants of powerful historical figures who may have once sat on the throne. Ву tracing thеіr ancestry, we hаvе uncovered thаt thеу hаvе royal bloodlines аnd thаt thеу аrе regal іn mоrе ways thаn one!c

Céline Dion

Like Madonna, Dion is a ninth cousin once removed of Camilla Parker Bowles, making Dion and Madonna 10th cousins twice removed through Jean Guyon, one of Quebec’s earliest settlers, and 10th cousins once removed through another ancestor, Zacharie Cloutier.

Angelina Jolie

Jolie is descended from French royalty through her mother, Marie Betrand. We can trace her lineage all the way back to the 12th century French king, Phillip II, the son of Louis VII. That makes Jolie also related to Marie of France, an influential French royal of the time and Phillip's half-sister. Plus, Jolie and Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II are 26th cousins.

Brad Pitt

This former "Sexiest Man Alive" is more than just Hollywood royalty! Pitt who is t ghost e fromer ex of Angelina Jolie is claimed to be related to King Henry II of England who ruled from 1154-1189 from his mother's side.

Dakota and Elle Fanning

Elle Fanning may have played Princess Aurora in Maleficent, but she and older sister, Dakota are actual princesses (kinda). They're the 22nd great-granddaughters of King Edward III, who ruled England from 1327 to 1377. They're also are the 21st cousins of the Duchess of Cambridge, as Middleton’s mother, Carole Goldsmith, is a distant granddaughter of King Edward III.

Hugh Grant

When it comes to royalty, this "Notting Hill" star is very connected! Grant has not one, but two royal blood lines. He is related to Henry VII, the first monarch of the House of Tudor, from his mother's side, and he is also a distant relation of James IV, the King of Scotland.

Johnny Depp

Depp appeared on the show "Who Do You Think You Are" to trace his heritage. As if the amazing actor wasn't already blessed enough, he also found out that he's the 20th cousin of Queen Elizabeth.

Paris Hilton

Hilton may act like a princess, and maybe that's because she has a royal connection herself! The socialite is the Queen's 20th cousin through Henry II on her father Richard Hilton's side of the family. That's hot.


Beyonce isn't just Queen B—she's also the 25th cousin, once removed, of Queen Elizabeth II. Imagine Beyoncé wearing the Crown Jewels and schmoozing with the royals. They (and I) can't handle it.
