Yes I have found it just checking to see if they are here as well. It seems to be a common trend to have forums overlap.

Good article, i noticed that the story made his royal connections seem a bit more distant than what they really tho.

How close do you think his royal connections are though?

The Brandrams are descended from Queen Victoria through her eldest daughter, Victoria, Princess Royal. Nicholas's grandmother was the granddaughter of the Princess Royal.

The Brandrams are more closely related through the Greeks - which the article mentions. Prince Philip and Nicholas' grandmother are first cousins, both being male-line grandchildren of George I of Greece. This makes Nicholas the third cousin of William and Harry through their paternal grandfather. Not exactly a close relation.

Calling Princess Katherine of Greece the last female descendent of Queen Victoria, honestly the Telegraph is becoming about as accurate as the DM.

I wonder if they meant that she was the last living female great-grandchild of QV and just made a blatantly silly error.

I think QEII, QMII, Sofia of Spain, Princess Anne, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Zara Phillips, Princess Alexandra, Marina Mowatt, Princess Astrid of Norway and many others in many countries would disagree with that statement.

I think that the article meant that Katherine was the last of an all female-line of direct descendants from Queen Victoria (Victoria - Victoria - Sophie - Katherine) and/or that at the time of her death in 2007 she was the last surviving great-granddaughter of Queen Victoria.

Particularly when a new female descendent was born in August this year - named Maud Windsor.

I suspect the latter - the last surviving great-granddaughter of Queen Victoria.
