PRINCE Harry and his new girlfriend are related as distant cousins, The Sun reported today.
A family tree showed that blue-blooded blonde Florence Brudenell-Bruce, 25, is an eighth cousin of the 26-year-old royal.
Brudenell-Bruce's links to Harry, Princess Diana and even Prince Charles' second wife, Camilla, can be traced back to the 18th century.
A family tree revealed that as well as being an eighth cousin of her new beau, she is also a distant cousin of both Diana and Camilla.
The common factor in the aristocratic web is the Honourable Sir Edward Walpole, the son of Britain's first prime minister, Sir Robert Walpole.
