Anne Hegerty DNA Journey
Anne Hegerty's DNA journey was a confirmation of her grandmother's tales.
She took part in ITV's DNA Journey on April 5, 2022, and the results of her test were amazing for the viewers.
However, Hegerty was not surprised or shocked to learn that she had a connection to the ruling monarchs but was a confirmation of the tales she grew up listening to.
According to Hello!, Anne did know about her royal connections before delving into her family history but she just didn't believe it! She believed her grandmother was a tremendous liar.
Anne is the 19th cousin of Queen of England Elizabeth II. It was revealed that the relationship came from her mother's side. One of her ancestors had married the King's daughter Princess Elizabeth back in 1370 according to Digital Spy.
Although her grandmother had tales to tell, her mother never spoke anything about her ancestors.
