The Franks were "German"
The Celts originated from Halstatt (Austria) 600BC so "German" as well.
The Vikings, Goths, Visigoths, Ostrogoths were also German.

Well,it seems that the vast majority of the British population have Germanic ancestry,not only the Royal family...

The Celts are Celts and nothing else. They might originate from what today is called Austria but at the time there wasn't a German insight anywhere near.

"An introduction of language"(1993) by Victoria Fremkin and Robert Rodman:

"Romans invaded Britain in the first century AD and dominated Germanic Celts, the previous conquerors of Britain.Britain's northern tribes, the Scots and Picts were attacking the Celtic invaders at the time that the Romans arrived, but Rome prevailed.And as the power of Rome declined in the fifth century, the Romans left Britain.

The Celts then sent for Germanic Jutes(Teuton mercenaries) to repel their old enemies, the Scots and and the Picts.In 449 AD., the Jutes helped to defeat the Scots and the Picts and having won, decided to dominate their cousins the Celts with the help of other German tribes, the Angles and Saxons.It is from an Angles and Saxons and the linguistic soup already present in British Isles that English was born."
