  1. The Philips girls, Queen Elizabeth II’s great grandchildren are almost as well to the family’s bosom as am I. Maybe that’s why they weren’t given saints’ names, but were, rather, named for the earth? Sixty years ago, when my mother and I watched the coronation of QEII, I remarked: “If our family were not sprung from those born on the wrong side of the blanket ” (3 of James V of Scotland’s 9 bastards, for example), “we could have been there.” Mary, Queen of Scots, descent from whom makes the foundation of the British Royal House, is our great aunt, times 3, 17 times removed. I am informed by someone at “” that I am listed in a data base of some 700,000 persons descended from the Emperor Charlemagne. To that, I responded: “That, and a dollar, will get you a cup of coffee at MacDonald’s.” Who is number 699,999?
