Yes some people have done their "research" (not well enough I'm thinking but there you go) and you'll never guess who it is, seriously go on guess. Are you ready ??
"Robert Pattinson and Dracula are distant relatives"
So the Assoicated Press & Reuters tell us.
I think I can see a resemblance around emmm........ the..... emmm..... chin.
Robert Pattinson isn't the only famous vampire in his family.
Genealogists say the 24-year-old "Twilight" star is related to Vlad the Impaler, widely cited as the inspiration for the main character in Bram Stoker's "Dracula."
Researchers at Ancestry.com discovered that Pattinson and the Transylvanian leader (real name: Vlad III Dracula) are connected through their relationship to the British royal family. Prince William and Prince Harry are Pattinson's distant cousins; (Kate: Huh? What? First I've heard of that!) Vlad the Impaler was their distant uncle.
"Tracing Pattinson's family back to Vlad was difficult research, but the pieces that unraveled created the perfect accompaniment to the Twilight Saga," said Anastasia Tyler, a genealogist at Ancestry.com. "Without any myth or magic, we find royalty and vampires lurking in Pattinson's life — making his story just as supernatural as the one he's playing on screen." (Kate: I think that's meant to say supernatural fiction)
Also connected to the prince's lineage and therefore to Dracula? Stephenie Meyer, the author of the "Twilight" series. (Kate: Aah come on now!)
