[post_page_title]Beyoncé and Queen Elizabeth II[/post_page_title]
Is it any wonder that the singer known as Queen Bey is related to actual royalty? Well, yeah, but we swear it’s true! “Becky with the good hair” can’t claim to have descended from Henry II, who ruled England in the 12th century, but Beyoncé can! Through Henry, Beyoncé’s the 25th cousin, once-removed, of none other than Queen Elizabeth. In other words, when Bey shook hands with Prince Harry at the Lion King’s London premiere, it was a family reunion! Bonus points: talent runs in the family, as Beyoncé’s also distantly related to Austrian composer Gustav Mahler.
