Danny Dyer finds out he actually descends from royalty

Danny Dyer finds out he actually descends from royalty

Remember that forgettable lad sympathiser you unfollowed on Twitter a few years back because they tweeted 'Daniel Dyer is KING'? Well, you better get ready to bridge the awkwardness, as they were actually right.

In a new episode of the BBC's programme, Who Do You Think You Are? He discovered that his working class, East London schtick is as faux as the accent itself.

“It’s crazy,” Dyer said to the Radio Times about the discovery. “But the fact of the matter is that I am a direct descendant of royalty.”

It turns out that Dyer is related to Henry VIII’s advisor, Thomas Cromwell.

“He came from a slum, I come from a slum. Cromwell left the country at 14, I started acting at 14. He was a self-taught lawyer – I’m a self-taught actor. Cromwell had two daughters and a son. I’ve got two daughters and a son. Cromwell wrote his last letter to Henry VIII begging for his life, on 24 July, which is my birthday … And I drink in the Anne Boleyn pub.”

There you have it.
