New Documentary Claims Meghan Markle Is Related To Jack The Ripper

With the royal wedding is just a few days away, future royal Meghan Markle has never been far away from the headlines.

Whether it's her sister being a "media vulture" or her ex being a former adult film star there seems to be controversy at every corner for the royal bride-to-be.

Now, Channel 4 has aired a documentary called Meet the Markles which follows YouTube star Amelia Dimoldenberg on her mission to get an invite to the big day by travelling to America and meeting some of Meghan's relatives

One of these relatives is US lawyer Jeff Mudgett, a distant cousin eight times removed. He claims they are descendants of Dr H.H. Holmes, who was suspected of being Jack the Ripper.

Holmes has been dubbed 'America's first serial killer,' and some people like Jeff, believe he was responsible for the horrific murders in London's Whitechapel.

He admitted to murdering 27 people at a hotel in Englewood near Chicago and is accused of 200 more deaths.

In the documentary a lawyer said: "We did a study with the FBI and CIA and Scotland Yard regarding handwriting analysis. It turns out [Holmes] was Jack the Ripper. This means Meghan is related to Jack the Ripper. I don't think the Queen knows."

Viewers were left amused and confused by the show and took to Twitter with one person saying: "I didn't get #MeetTheMarkles at all, was it a kind of pseudo-Cunk thing? Totally dreadful presenter (I know this was supposed to be 'sarcasm') and completely pointless."

A second person tweeted: "I've watched some strange things on TV in my life but this #meetthemarkles is quite up there."

Meghan and Prince Harry will be getting married on Satuday 19th May at St George's Chapel in Windsor.
