If the royal baby ever becomes interested in becoming part of the entertainment biz, he or she certainly has some great connections.

At least according to findmypast.co.uk. The Daily Mail reports that the genealogy website has revealed that Prince William and Kate Middleton's child will be the 23rd cousin twice removed of Beyoncé and Jay-Z's daughter Blue Ivy!

The connection supposedly stems from their shared French heritage.

As if that wasn't cool enough, it's also been determined that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's six children will apparently be 27th cousins to the baby.

But wait. There's more.

Other celebrity offspring linked to the future heir to the throne include Céline Dion's three children (26th cousins thrice removed), Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner's little ones (11th cousins), Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard's tykes (20th cousins twice removed) and Uma Thurman's kids (22nd cousins).

"It's long been said that the USA and UK have a special relationship, and that is certainly the case between Hollywood's elite and the Royal Family," Debra Chatfield, a family historian at findmypast.co.uk told the Daily Mail, adding: "The closest relation we found to the Hollywood children was the late Princess Diana. Diana's ancestry includes a number of early settlers on the east coast of the USA that can be traced right up to the modern family."

Of course, when it comes to Blue Ivy, the gal already knows a thing or two about sporting a crown, as seen in a recent pic Bey posted on her official Tumblr page. In other words, if the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's child ever needs a few pointers on how to rock one, he or she will know who to call. Her cousin!
