Kate Middleton a Kennedy??

What a shocking story to report...Vanity Fair earlier this month uncovered that Kate Middleton is related to the Kennedys! These pictures are what broke the story..a young Kate sailing with Ted Kennedy and the Clintons on board Ted's schooner years ago.

A closeup of Kate..who looks like many of her Kennedy cousins. Vanity Fair states "according to Dr. Adam Fenwick-Symes, a genealogist at the University of Cambridge and himself one-48th Kennedy, Middleton’s paternal great-grandmother Edwardian socialite Olive Lupton is the daughter of Francis Martineau Lupton and Harriet Albina Davis. Davis is the daughter of William Davis, whose aunt, Maria Davis, married James Kennedy, father to Patrick, grandfather to P.J., great-grandfather to Joe, and great-great-grandfather to John F. Kennedy."

This story goes on to say that this big reveal was supposed to be kept under wraps until at least after the wedding at the end of this month and that many Kennedy relatives are expected to attend the nuptials. Then the story reveals itself to be one big April Fool's Joke. Call me G-U-L-L-I-B-L-E...I seriously was believing every word..even though a story of this magnitude would surely have been on every news outlet and magazine areound....

I just finished watching The Kennedys mini-series. Although they took some serious liberties telling the more personal aspect of their story, I thought the whole thing was very entertaining to watch. If you have been reading my blog for some time, you know I am a huge Katie Holmes fan (since Dawson's Creek), but she seemed rather stiff playing this role. I also thought it was distracting for her to have an accent that came and went. Her clothes were to die for..my favorite was this dress...

All in all, it is worth the time, I finally found it On Demand..thank goodness!
