ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

- You have one more cousin to whom I want to introduce you.

Would you please turn the page?

- Really?

- [Henry] You are directly related to Princess Diana

- Really?

- [Henry] Yeah.

- Wow.

- Glenn and Diana are eighth cousins.

Their nearest common ancestors

are Glenn's seventh great grandparents,

Sarah and Joseph Strong.

By coincidence, the two met at least once in person in 1989

when Glenn was in England promoting a film.

- [Glenn] She was lovely.

- [Henry] Did you have any idea

that you were related to her?

- No, but look at our hairstyles.

They're very much alike.

(peaceful music)
