The BBC are launching a brand new two-part series tonight (Wednesday, January 23rd).

Danny Dyer’s Right Royal Family will air on BBC One at 9 pm, tracing Danny’s supposed royal relations all the way back to King Edward III.

What started as a sort of hilarious joke in an episode of Who Do You Think You Are? now appears to be part of Danny’s day-to-day life.

So, how is he related to King Edward III?

Danny Dyer and King Edward III

In 2016 series Who Do You Think You Are?, the Eastenders actor found out that he was a direct descendant of two former kings of England.

According to the show, Danny’s family tree leads straight back to both William the Conqueror and King Edward III.

Apparently, Danny Dyer’s family tree takes the following route:

Rollo the Viking (the very first ruler of Normandy)

William the Conqueror (the first Norman king of England)

King Henry II (King in 1154)

King Edward III (King in 1312)
