Kate Middleton related to Ellen DeGeneres

By Autumn Brewington

Talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres is hoping she has found her in (read: invite) for the royal wedding. The comedienne reveled on her show this week that she is distantly related to Prince William's fiancee. How distant? DeGeneres and Kate Middleton are 15th cousins, according to a letter DeGeneres received from the New England Genealogical Society.

Between her team winning the Super Bowl and her newfound royal relation, Ellen noted, she's having a good week. But in case family ties aren't enough to snag her an official invite -- rumored to go out later this month -- she also offered to help plan the bachelorette party.

Poor Kate. As if she didn't have enough problems marrying into that dysfunctional family. Now she's related to the Lesbian Du Jour!
