Random Royal Rotogravure – Relatives

The always thoughtful JR on Twitter got me ruminating on royal relations with this tweet.

I did not know that Queen Astrid and the Romanovs were second cousins. JR explains it.

Are they are any royals relations that surprise you? One day I realized that Pavlos of Greece (well, all the Greek children from his family) were first cousins of both Princes Felipe and Frederik and that stunned me.

Let us know your “well that was a surprise” moments!
