Would You Ignore Your Family Tree For Love?.

I’ve always been a big believer in family. So much so, that a large majority of the people that I consider to be friends are related to me. Apparently, Prince Harry thinks the world of his family as well since he now dates his cousin …yeah, that wasn’t a typo. Check out the news report below.

After generations of inbreeding, Britain’s Royal Family appears to finally be getting serious about adding photogenic depth to the family gene pool.

Prince Harry’s new GF looks familiar to those who pay attention to ads.

Curiously, Prince Harry is taking a stab at it by dating his lingerie-modeling cousin.

Fortunately for any pending mingling of chromosomes, she’s a distant cousin — eight times removed, according to The Telegraph.

Florence Brudenell-Bruce, a blonde like the prince’s mother, will give future queen Kate Middleton a run for her money in the looks department. The British media is already following her every move — one headline alerted the world the young lady wore THREE outfits in one day. And her face appears on a curling iron box.

According to people who keep up with such things, Brudenell-Bruce is a descendant of the seventh Earl of Cardigan, Lieutenant General James Thomas Brudenell, who famously led the Charge of the Light Brigade against the Russians during the Crimean War.

Harry, 26, began dating Brudenell-Bruce, 25, after ending his relationship with Zimbabwean-born Chelsy Davy, according to The Telegraph.

Being a prince has its advantages, it seems.

So that leads me to a question for the group. How distant would your cousin have to be before you would consider dating them? Second cousin? Third cousin? Fourth? Let me know.
