American star Johnny Depp, who recently garnered attention after briefly appearing in the MTV Video Music Awards has been reported to be linked with the royal family. According to a 2011 episode of Who Do You Think You Are, the 59-year-old actor was reported to have royal blood running through his veins that links him to the late Queen Elizabeth II.

According to Dr. Nick Barratt, a genealogist who is associated with the series stated, “When I examined Johnny’s history I discovered a likely connection to the royal family.”

Adding to his theory, he shared, “I’ve since established the family tree that demonstrates how. You have to go back more than 500 years to reach the point where his ancestors become royal. I believe the balance of probability is that there is indeed a link between Depp and the royals.”

According to the reports by findmypast.com, Bullet Train actor Brad Pitt has closer ties with the royal family than his ex-wife Angelina Jolie. The actor is reportedly the 25th cousin twice removed of the late Queen, both sharing a common ancestor, 12th century King Henry II of England. On the other hand, Jolie is the 26th cousin of Queen Elizabeth through her connection with the 12th-century French king, Philip II. That makes the ex-couple distant cousins as Henry II’s wife Eleanor of Aquitaine was also the first wife of Louis VII of France, Philip II’s father.

The ex-couple are engaged in an ongoing custody battle of their minor children who shares six children, Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Vivienne and Knox. The couple was declared legally single back in 2019.
