Thank you for the link.

As I have seen while searching the web, some of the genealogists doubt this Hussey connection stating that this certain John Hussey, Meghan's ancestor, might not be descendant of Lord Hussey.

"This genealogy assumes that it is the same John who married Marie Wood, but there is no concrete evidence that he is the same man."

I wonder will anyone investigate this connection better and further when Maghan becomes Princess.

A claim that Meghan is a distant relative of William Shakespeare (through his sister presumably) and of Winston Churchill. The chart provided for the Churchill connection looks rather primitive!

Not at all. It includes a chart of how she is said to be linked to Shakespeare. The claim is not that she is descended from him, but a common ancestor. That through his mother, they are fifth cousins (13 times removed). That his mother Mary's great-great grandmother's sister was Meghan's ancestor.

This is the woman Meghan is said to be descended from.
