Family Skeletons

An interesting snippet from this morning's Cameron puff in the Times:

'He is a descendant of Henry VII through the monarch’s daughter, Mary Tudor, and her marriage to the Duke of Suffolk.'

How extraordinary (not). And you know, it may eventually turn out he really was born to rule. But what the Times didn't say was the last time this branch of "the firm" took the controls, it didn't actually turn out that well.

In fact, DC's great-great....great aunt, Lady Jane Grey, reigned for only nine days before being carted off to the Tower to have her bonce sliced off.

Hope it's not a family trait.
