Disney actress Elle Fanning (“Maleficent”) was seen out for a hike in Studio City, California. Elle was joined by her parents for the workout.
Recently it was revealed that Elle and her siblings are related to the royal family in England – they are Kate Middleton’s cousins (21st cousins to be exact).
Elle is the 22nd great-granddaughter of England’s King Edward III as well!
Michelle Ercanbrack, a family historian for Ancestry.com, revealed to People Magazine:
Generation after generation, the lines we looked at pieced back directly to King Edward III proving that Elle is a direct descendant of royalty. You can consider her a long-lost princess. This connection is so unique and rare.
How cool is that? So Elle doesn’t just play royalty in her Walt Disney Pictures’ movie “Maleficent,” she is also royalty in real life!
