Ellen DeGeneres and Kate Middleton are cousins!

'But they're cousins... '
Cue the "Patty Duke Show" theme song - Ellen DeGeneres and Kate Middleton are cousins!

Well... kinda sorta.

The Emmy-winning talk show host has revealed that, according to the New England Historic Genealogical Society, she and Kate are 15th cousins.
While their bloodlines are not nearly as close as Barack Obama and Dick Cheney - the president and former vice president are eighth cousins - Kate and Ellen have a common ancestor by the name of Sir Thomas Fairfax and his wife, Agnes Gascoigne.

Forget Ellen's bid to be invited to the wedding - we're having visions of Ellen being added as a bridesmaid! At the very least, there would never be a dull moment on the dance floor.
