10 Stars Who Are Related to Royalty
3. Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal
These critically acclaimed siblings not only are stellar actors, they are blue-bloods. Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal patrilineally descend from Edward III, the King of England. The king ruled England from 1327 until 1377. The siblings are 19th cousins from the Queen of England.
4. Paris Hilton
While this hard-partying heiress might act like a royal, she actually has royal ties. The reality tv star turned dj is a descendant of King Henry the II. She is also the 20th cousin to the Queen. Hilton certainly feels like royalty. She told Yahoo News: “There’s nobody in the world like me. I think every decade has an iconic blonde — like Marilyn Monroe or Princess Diana — and right now, I’m that icon.”
