The iconic Brooke Shields is an actress, model, businesswoman, and…royalty?! The beauty born in New York City was participating in a television series, “Who do you think you are“when the program’s investigators discovered that she was directly related to King Henry IV, and that Louis XIV was a cousin, often estranged. According to MyLondon, a study by FindMyPast.com revealed that Shields is also the late Queen Elizabeth’s 18th cousin, once removed. It’s not a bit clear, but the common ancestor shared with the queen is John of Gaunt, who was the first Duke of Lancaster and son of Edward III.
