Well, it looks like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle share some gruesome family history! According to a new report, one of the brunette beauty's ancestors was allegedly executed by a member of the royal family.
The Sunday Telegraph states that when Henry VIII (1491-1547) was king, a man by the name of Lord Hussey, 1st Baron Hussey of Sleaford, plotted to overthrow him. After he was caught, he was beheaded by the famous monarch. Hussey was allegedly the great-great-great grandfather of Captain Christopher Hussey, who became a founding father of Nantucket. Meghan's father, Thomas Markle, is descended from Christopher.

Though the couple may not want to bring that story up while gathered around the dinner table, Life & Style previously reported that the duo is seriously ramping up their relationship. Meghan, who decided not to return to her hit show Suits after her contract expired, is officially moving to London to be close to Harry, 33.
She's relocating from Canada after filming wraps this month, an insider explained. “She’s fed up with being in a long-distance relationship, and she and Harry both feel ready to take their relationship to the next level.” The pair has also begun secretly planning their wedding.
“Harry is adamant about having an intimate ceremony with just his and Meghan’s closest friends and family,” a different source shared. The actress and philanthropist loves the idea because she “feels there’s too much excess in the world and would not want to waste money on a glamorous event."
The 36-year-old recently opened up for the first time about her romance with the red-headed royal. "We’re two people who are really happy and in love. We were very quietly dating for about six months before it became news, and I was working during that whole time, and the only thing that changed was people’s perception," she told Vanity Fair. "Nothing about me changed. I’m still the same person that I am, and I’ve never defined myself by my relationship.”
