凯特·米德尔顿与英国未来国王威廉王子一结婚,她很快就将成为这世界上最著名家族中的一员。
Kate Middleton will soon become part of one of the mostfamous families in the world when she marries the future king of England.
但据最近出版的一本新书,凯特竟是很多历史名人的远亲,其中包括美国第一任总统乔治·华盛顿。
But according to a new book, she is already related to a whole host of extremely well-known people including America’s first presidentGeorge Washington.
美国波士顿的新英格兰历史族谱协会最近出版了一本关于米德尔顿小姐先祖的书,书中指出威廉王子的未婚妻是美国国父乔治·华盛顿的第七代远房表亲。
The New England Historic Genealogical Society in Boston has released a book on Miss Middleton's ancestry that shows Prince William's fiancée is an eighth cousin seven times removed of founding father George Washington.
同时她还是美国国歌《星条旗》的作者Francis Scott Key的远房表亲。
She is also a cousin of FrancisScott Key, who wrote The Star-Spangled Banner.
据这本名叫《凯瑟琳·米德尔顿寻祖》的书考证,与凯特有远亲关系的名人还包括:冒险家Meriwether Lewis,第二次世界大战名将general George Patton以及著名喜剧演员Ellen DeGeneres,而且都是远房表亲关系。
Among other notable relations detailed in The Ancestry Of Catherine Middleton are explorer Meriwether Lewis, Second World War general George Pattonand comedienne Ellen DeGeneres - all distant cousins.
不仅如此,米德尔顿小姐还是她自己未婚夫威廉王子的远房表亲。
Miss Middleton is also a 14th cousin once removed of her fiancé, PrinceWilliam.
族谱协会的市场部负责人Tom Champoux指出,米德尔顿小姐与美国名人的远亲关系很多都可以通过17世纪中晚期移民到弗吉尼亚地区的七个家族追溯得来。
The genealogical society's marketing director, Tom Champoux,said a lot of Miss Middleton's connections to famous Americans could be tracedthrough seven families that immigrated to the Virginia area during the middle to late 1600s.
尽管有这么多名人祖先,但这本书也指出,米德尔顿小姐的先祖大部分都是劳动阶级,这与她的未婚夫兼英国未来国王威廉截然不同。
Famous namesaside, the book shows Ms Middleton's ancestry is largely working class, unlike her soon-to-be husband and future king.
