I read, in the Mail on Sunday today, that Dave and Sam-Cam are both descended from royalty. I think it was meant to convey how aristocratic they are, but anyone who knows their British history will realise that they are both descended from unmarried mothers!

Sam Cam is descended from Charles the Second and Dave from William the Fourth and neither of these monarchs had any legitimate children, so both are descended from the “wrong side of the blanket”!

Both ancestors probably lived on estates, admittedly they were probably supported by the kings, but the kings were supported by the Treasury so ultimately they were living off the state.

This may give heart to the unmarried mothers living on estates as their descendents too may one day rise up the social scale. Of course they have to choose their partners very carefully. 🙂
