Tracing Kate Middleton’s family tree By Aaron January 9, 2012 Share Share Copy Link In case you didn’t know, today is the 30th birthday of Kate Middleton and we couldn’t think of a better way to honor the occasion than by sharing her fascinating family history and tree. Kate’s family history – contrary to her now relatively opulent lifestyle – is one that many of us can attest to in our family trees. Kate’s family are from the North of England and – up to the last few generations – her ancestors were mostly working-class. According to the New England Historic Genealogical Society her ancestors include merchants, messengers, solicitors, cabinet makers, butchers, bakers, a laundress, and coalminers. The Society also revealed in November 2010 that Kate Middleton (along with the Queen Mother and Princess Diana) is a cousin of America’s first president, George Washington.
