A heritage consultant who was trying to establish if Kate Middleton had Scottish roots has found an ancestral link to Prince William instead. Gordon Casely, who is based in Aberdeen, said he found Prince William was a direct descendant of a “hard-drinking” 17th century Middleton from Aberdeenshire.
Mr Casely claimed the prince’s lineage could be traced back to John Middleton, the son of a laird from the parish of Luthermuir. Middleton’s daughter went on to marry an ancestor of Prince William’s great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother.
