The wrestler is actually a descendant of an English king.

Prince Harry may not be marrying a commoner, after all—research finds that Nikki Bella actually has royal blood in her.

The wrestler is a direct descendant of England's King Edward III, who ruled from 1327 until 1377, according to genealogist, Gary Boyd Roberts. That technically makes her and Harry 17th cousins.

Roberts, who specializes in researching American descendants of British monarchs, is affiliated with the Boston-based New England Historic Genealogical Society, one of the world's top genealogical institutions. The organization announced the findingson Nikki's ancestry yesterday.

According to the research, Nikki, a San Diego-born American citizen, is a 24th generation descendant of King Edward III.

With this newfound genealogical connection, Nikki's other royal very-distant cousins include Her Majesty the Queen and Princess Diana, the organization states. She's also distantly related to U.S. presidents like George W. Bush, George H.W. Bush, Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon, and Calvin Coolidge.

Despite her roots in the monarchy, Nikki is still taking big steps to get acclimated to royal life as she preps for her royal wedding. She plans to get baptized and confirmed in the Church of England before marrying Harry, and will become a U.K. citizen.
