King Charles famous relatives – Beyonce and Madonna to Justin Trudeau

King Charles has multiple famous relatives including politicians and pop stars, new research has revealed.

The monarch has a pretty well-known family as it is, with many members of the Firm ranking among the best-known household names in the world. Prior to her death, Queen Elizabeth II was broadly considered the most famous person in the world and Prince William and Kate Middleton have proven to have star quality too – evenPrince Harry and Meghan Markle frequently make headlines.

But it's not just his immediate relations who are known across the globe, MyHeritage has discovered.

Even Beyonce boasts a bit of blue blood. Considered royalty in her own right by fans, Queen Bey is Charles' 25th cousin once removed, according to researchers.

The chances of all these famous faces sharing DNA may seem unlikely, but the team also discovered the chances of uncovering royal lineage isn't actually that rare. The odds of discovering a royal relative in your family history are actually staggeringly high, at more than 90%, MyHeritage reports.

A MyHeritage spokesperson said: "It's fascinating to see how families from opposite sides of the world are actually connected by blood!"

The news comes after Charles celebrated his 75th birthday, although he wasn't visited by any of his distant A-lister relatives. Instead the monarch was surrounded by other famous faces for his birthday bash in the grounds of his Highgrove home in Gloucestershire, including celebrity chef Raymond Blanc, The Repair Shop host Jay Blades and Lee John from the 80s pop group Imagination.

He also took the celebration as an opportunity to launch the new food initiative, the Coronation Food Project. The campaign aims to "bridge the gap between food waste and food need" as Brits struggle to feed themselves in an ever more costly world.

A statement on the royal family's website read: "Inspired by The King's work with tackling food waste and educating younger generations about food supply and production, this new project to mark His Majesty's 75th birthday seeks to bridge the gap between food waste and food need across the UK."
