Josh Widdicombe is also a descendant of King Edward III

Like many Britons, Josh is a descendant of King Edward III, grandson of King Philip IV of France.

According to British geneticist Adam Rutherford, it is « virtually impossible » that a person with a predominantly British ancestry is not descended from Edward III.[2] He has calculated that « almost every Briton » is « descended between 21 and 24 generations from Edward III ».[3]
