After generations of inbreeding, Britain’s Royal Family appears to finally be getting serious about adding photogenic depth to the family gene pool.
Curiously, Prince Harry is taking a stab at it by dating his lingerie modelling cousin.
Fortunately for any pending mingling of chromosomes, she’s a distant cousin — eight times removed, according to The Telegraph.
Florence Brudenell-Bruce, a blonde like the prince’s mother, will give future queen Kate Middleton a run for her money in the looks department. The British media is already following her every move — one headline alerted the world the young lady wore THREE outfits in one day. And her face appears on a curling iron box.
According to people who keep up with such things, Brudenell-Bruce is a descendant of the seventh Earl of Cardigan, Lieutenant General James Thomas Brudenell, who famously led the Charge of the Light Brigade against the Russians during the Crimean War.
Harry, 26, began dating Brudenell-Bruce, 25, after ending his relationship with Zimbabwean-born Chelsy Davy, according to The Telegraph.
Being a prince has its advantages, it seems.
