According to some new findings, Kate Middleton has some interesting roots that trace back to a farm laborer who was sent to Australia after he was caught stealing some sheep! After being found guilty of stealing three adorable lambs, the dude was shipped off to the land of the koalas where he was forced to live out the rest of his days. The arrival of this interesting news is uncanny, as Kate, Prince William, and their son will be heading to Australia next Wednesday and this news is sure to be the talk of Australia.
As Christopher Wilson for the Daily Mail UK reports, “This new-found blood link will help in the Royal Family’s continuing battle against the republican movement, which maintains a powerful voice in the country and wants a head of state who is Australian and who lives in the country. It will also, perhaps, strengthen the arguments of those who support the idea of Prince William becoming Governor-General of Australia when the incumbent Sir Peter Cosgrove retires in five years.”
Kate’s link to Australia can be traced through her mother, Carole Middleton, Prince George’s grandmother. What do you make of this royal news? I suppose if you’re into geneology, especially as it relates to the royal families, then this news will be of particular interest. How do you think this newfound knowledge will influence the social dynamics the royals will face when they travel to Australia in the coming week?
