The Middletons of Devonshire

When I read the news about Prince William engagement to Miss Catherine Elizabeth Middleton, one question occurred to me: would Miss Middleton be a distant relative of Sir John Middleton from Devonshire? Owner of Barton Cottage and dear cousin of Mrs. Dashwood?
William and Kate
What do you think?

You have to wonder...

I'm frankly happy the Royal family is getting some new DNA into the bloodline with Kate.
I ventured to imagine a connection too.
I think that is possible about Sir John...he's such an amiable and generous relative...his MIL is also, although her overwhelming need to say and do things that are well meant, but embarrassing might be a problem for the Royal Family ! (as if they needed any more nonsense going on )

perhaps the couple has met in one of the famous Sir John's balls...

To paraphrase Jeff Foxworthy...

if upon first hearing or reading the full name "Catherine Elizabeth Middleton", you thought of Jane Austen...

... you might be a Janeite!
