Meghan Markle Hugs Her ‘Cousin’ Mookie Betts Ahead Of The Yankees Versus Red Sox Game In London

Meghan Markle shared a hug with her “cousin” Boston Red Sox player Mookie Betts as she and Prince Harry met the players ahead of their first-ever MLB game in London.

Meghan and Mookie supposedly share ancestry dating back 150 years to America’s Deep South according to a genealogist Jim McNiff, per the Daily Mail.

The “cousins'” origins can be traced back to their relatives in Alabama!

According to the Daily Mail, an 1870 Federal Consensus shows that Joseph Betts is Mookie’s great-great grandfather and Jacob Betts (who lived two doors down from Joseph) is Meghan’s great-great grandfather.
