Is This Gay Ex-Mormon American Man The True Heir To British Throne?

This has all the makings of a paperback Dan Brown thriller you start on a flight to JFK and only get 40 pages into because you left it on your flight to JFK.

The true heir to the British crown could actually be a gay ex-Mormon from Salt Lake City, reports say.

Charles, William and George may have some competition, though the story does require a certain degree of eye squinting to see clearly.

But who doesn’t love some good royal intrigue?

King George III, you’ll remember from your elementary school history class, was the ruler during the time of US independence. He had a son, conveniently named King George IV, who may have had an illegal marriage around the late 1700s to a Roman Catholic woman named Maria Fitzherbert.

When the Prince rose to the throne, the marriage would have been annulled. But Fitzherbert may not have gone along with the plan so willingly, because the two more than likely had a child.

James Knight Ord the III could be the descendant of that child.

“They tried to get her to sign the back of her marriage certificate that she had no issue, that there were no children of issue from the marriage and she, of course, refused to do so,” Ord told Fox 13.

“Our family would have been the rightful heirs of the crown, but we were sent off packing,” he added.

Ord has a husband and four adopted kids, and isn’t looking to stir and actual drama with his maybe-royal blood. Plus, even if it turned out to be true, the family has long since lost its claim to the throne.

But we’re sure it makes for some juicy conversation at their family reunions.
