Thread: Kate Middleton's Kerry ancestry

  1. #1

    Default Kate Middleton's Kerry ancestry

    It appears "The Kingdom" is living up to its nickname, with Kate Middleton descended from a long line of Fitzmaurices, making current Kerry manager Eamon a distant relation. Of course, virtually everyone can purport to some royal antecedents if one goes far enough back, my own surname allegedly deriving from the famous mediaeval clan of the McCarthy Mór, the unfortunate incidence of same ancestor falling asleep in battle leading directly to defeat!

    Which is even more reason Royal families are obsolete and should be left to children fairy tales.

    Will she squeeze on a Ryanair flight to Farranfore to be personally welcolmed to Kerry for "the gathering" by Vlad, only for the multi pension earning, guffawing, John Brutal to push Vlad out of the way, so Brutal can personally welcome her to Ireland?

    The FitzMaurices are a Norman Planter Family.

    I wonder how many Irish they killed/starved/evicted.

    Personally I agreed with Hilary Mantel.

    Kate has always got on my nerves and is very dull.

    I kind of understand why - she's trying to do everything absolutely right. It's probably inevitable for someone not born royal, but she's very dreary.

    Mind you I'm not a royalist and care very little for the royal family.

    I suppose a bit of Irish ancestry might make her a bit more interesting, but not much.
    Brexit? Never heard of it mate...

    So even after 900 or so years they're still not Irish? Surely any look at any Irish person's ancestry shows an enormous mix of origins.
