Prince Harry dating lingerie model cousin

After generations of inbreeding, Britain’s Royal Family appears to finally be getting serious about adding photogenic depth to the family gene pool.

Prince Harry's new GF looks familiar to those who pay attention to ads.

Prince Harry's new GF looks familiar to those who pay attention to ads.

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.

Samantha, I’m pretty sure “eight times removed” means that they have one great-great-great-great-great-great-grandparents in common.

The Queen and Prince Phillip share one great-great grandparent: Queen Victoria.

I had sex with my distant cousin when I was in high school. She went through a very promiscuous period. I took advantage of it. No regrets.

8 times removed means that one of them is 8 generations higher or lower on the family tree than the other. This seems unlikely.

8th cousins would mean that you have to go up 9 generations to find the exact couple from whom both are descended.

“a blonde like the prince’s mother” – and millions of other women, including his ex girlfriend.

Also the British media needs to stay off ancestry.com.

What a boob in that commercial (Him, not hers). Typically short, egg-faced and plain. He looks like he was the distant second choice for actor in this ad behind Ricky Gervaise.

My bet is on Pippa; she is confident, strong, private, professional, layed back, respectful, relaxed in front of the camera, secretive and will never disrespect him in the public. Oh, I forgot she seems to be mature or grown up plus beautiful.

This girl looks spoil and will not adjust well to the line of authority she will subjected too. Plus she is a camera hog, immature and most of all his cousin. Never know when the crazies are going to show up in the lineage.

Hey, England and Alabama are about the same in square mileage area. After awhile, one runs out of un-DNA-related suitable mates. Is it not unreasonable to state that neither place is chock full of noteworthy brainiacs within a short amount of time? Will and Kate need not worry. Their kids are safe and Will at least, dodged a bullett.

If a couple from Alabama get married in Montgomery, then move to New York City and subsequently divorce are they then still legally brother and sister?

This is the only area on Earth where the European royals and Appalachia draw a distinct parallel. Okay, well maybe somewhere deep in the Amazon rainforest, but they at least tap different tribes for mates.

The only drawback from dating Prince Harry is having to take Dramamine during intimacy.

Hey Sunshine52shine: When you say that Pippa is LAYED back (instead of LAID back), it gives the statement NEW meaning! Whoo hoo! ;O

except shagging your cuzo….unless shes a model and 8 times removed…also ETHICS SAY YOU CAN DATE YOUR FOURTH COUSIN….

ANYTHING BEYOND THIRD COUSIN IS FAIR GAME< BUT MORALLY QUESTIONABLE NONETHELESS! YOU SIMPLY HIT IT ONCE OR TWICE & IF QUESTIONED ABOUT IT SAY YOU DIDNT KNOW & MOVE ON…BUT DATING????THATS A JUDGMENT CALL & SINCE IM NOT 1 to JUDGE-Im not makin the call…

If he wasn’t a Prince, she would not even give him the time of day.
As far as she being as beautiful as Kate: Take the makeup off of both of them and Kate would win, easily. Florence, without makeup has only average looks.– A 6 or 7 on a scale of 10.

an 8th cousin is hardly inbreeding. a 3rd or 4th cousin isnt either. Some ignorant people in this world. We are ALL inbreeders to some extent if you want to be technical. Alabama residents however are infamous for marrying their first and second cousins. brothers, sisters, mom’s dads. grandparents, uncles, aunts….extreme inbredding in Bama!

“…will give future queen Kate Middleton a run for her money in the looks department.”

Does she become Queen just ’cause she’s married to the King?

8 Times is pretty far removed. Many people have probably dated closer than that and never even realized it. Do you really know your family lineage back 7 or 8 generations, and every branch of offspring since than? If he wasn’t a prince no one would know they were cousins.

Well they both rank well on the screwable mindless bimbo chart. I doubt he’s contemplating marriage anytime soon……..
