Are you invited to the royal wedding? Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres might be there, she's related to the bride.

DeGeneres had been joking about being invited to the royal wedding so she decided to ask the New England Historic Genealogical Society to find out if she had any royal links.

A letter to DeGeneres from the ancestry hunters reads, "Our trusty genealogists have been at work on Kate Middleton's genealogy, with the big Royal wedding coming up. As we were doing the research, we discovered that you are related to Kate via a man named Sir Thomas Fairfax and his wife Agnes Gascoigne. You are distant cousins."

Ellen DeGeneres says she was stunned to discover that she's the 15th cousin of Britain's future queen.

Her invitation must have gotten lost in the mail.

Are you planning on getting up early to watch the royal wedding?
