Ellen Degeneres Is Related To Kate Middleton
The talk show host discovered through a genealogical society that she is a distant cousin of the future princess and still has her fingers crossed for a last-minute invitation to her wedding to Prince William tomorrow (29.04.11).
In an interview with Terri Seymour for 'Extra', she said: "We're 15th cousins, yeah, it's not like we're 20th or something ... we're 15th.
"It's not too late, Terri. I'm not counting anything out. That's not how I got to where I am, by being a glass-half-empty kind of person. I mean, there could be a phone call.
"I have a beautiful outfit picked out, and a hat."
Although she may not be invited to the nuptials, Ellen is hopeful she can use her family connections to secure an interview with Kate.
She said: "There will be a time when Oprah's not gonna be around next year. Who will be around to help her when she needs something? Me."
Ellen - who is married to actress Portia De Rossi is not the only American celebrity desperate to attend Kate and William's nuptials at London's Westminster Abbey.
Reese Witherspoon - who recently wed Hollywood agent Jim Toth - admitted she would have given anything to get an invite.
She said: "I can't even contain my enthusiasm for the Royal Wedding! I'm kind of bummed I'm not invited to the royal wedding. My girlfriend asked me if I was invited. Well, no, but I invited them to my wedding!"
