The Oscar-nominated actress and the royal bride-to-be share the same great-great-great grandfather – a link that Helena was previously unaware of.
“We can reveal that Helena and Kate are distant cousins, who share the same great-great-great grandfather, a Yorkshireman who worked in the wool trade,” HELLO! reports.
