The Bio:

Her history with royalty:

The born and bred Brit has always been connected to the royal family.  From being a bridesmaid at 13 at Princess Diana's wedding, to being the commentator for the upcoming union of Prince William and Kate Middleton...she's not new to the Royal wedding scene. She also has royal blood flowing through her beautiful veins- she's the Goddaughter of  Prince Charles, and Granddaughter of Countess Mountbatten of Burma (A former bridesmaid of Queen Elizabeth the II).  She's also 68th in line to the crown, as she jokes about in an article the Times recently did on her.
