The bombshell information first came in 2018 when Ellen said, "She refuses to admit it and I don’t know why. But I am going to be at Wimbledon and if my cousin Kate is there I’m going to bring the DNA chart with me.”

The claim has been substantiated by an ancestral tracing company in Boston, which found out that Kate and Ellen are related through Sir Thomas Fairfax and his wife, Agnes Gascoigne, who lived in England in the early 1500s.

“Kate Middleton and I are distant cousins and I don’t know if she thinks I’m joking, but I’m going to confront her," said the American talk show host.
