yes danny dyer was amazing and was indeed of royal blood. A very gripping story was his and his emotions shone through to reveal a very lovely caring soul what you see is what you get as i have met him and he is exactly like this in real life. He would make a great ambassador for anything which was for the betterment of his fellow man as he stands for fairness and the ability to say it like it is and interact with people go danny go

I love Danny Dyer, so darn to erf Essex boy. Love his swagger. The disbelief on his face was was priceless, wonder if he will wear his ruff. Wonder if he will be invited to Buck Palace for tea?

A reminder of the horrible conditions people lived in and the lopping off of heads, three attempts to sever Thomas Cromwell's head, unbelievable today, send some of our worst back in time.
Not so bad today after all.

Now that would be worth filming LittleMinx.

Jeanmark, I would pay to see a film about how he handles friends and neighbours now he is Royal, don't think it will change him much, boosted his self worth no end.

Boosted his wife's as well but I can't see it changing him.

Yes she likes the idea of being a Princess, his little boy is a Prince, he may "give it large" for a bit but in the cold light of day it's back to reality. There is no royal money coming his way.
He may find life is a bit "ruff". (ouch)

Do you think he will wear one in the Old Vic now he believes his related (Is that the name of the pub)?
Response from Yodama made on 26th Nov 2016 20:52:24
I would really love to see it incorporated into his landlord role in the soap, the pub is the Queen Vic. Since Eastenders is a drama a minute, wonder how a posh royal personage will blend in with the Walford lot.

I am disappointed, I have been watching Rugby, they are pathetic, not like the old days. Too precious now.

Well, I tried with the name of the pub but I neither watch soaps or rugby so i can't really comment. I agree the men do appear to be a little precious, the women seem tougher!

Danny Dyer is a bit 'OTT' for me, however I did find his ancestry trail interesting. I've enjoyed several of the programmes in past few series, and I know when I did mine a few years ago I found it a humbling and quite emotional experience (also complicated to navigate - so was very grateful to a clever and helpful archivist)

I have to say I didn't actual know who Danny Dyer was but I enjoy the programme. I agree it is very interesting to research your family tree as well as humbling when you realise what they endured.

I laughed at a comment on the internet that someone suggested that perhaps the Queen may be rummaging about in her family history to see if she is related to Danny Dyer!!!!! - No need Ma'm, - just check your German side, - plenty of history there.

True BrumEJ43
The Queen is not the true heir to the throne. ( this is going to upset avid Royalists)

Did you see Tony Robinson's Documentary -Britain's Real Monarch?

The true King and one who should be Britain's reigning Monarch is Michael Hastings, he lives in the outback in Australia. After intensive research, Tony went to meet him.
Michael has no desire to claim his rightful place, he is happy where he is.
It's a bit like the Danny Dyer shock, although Michael Hastings does have a scroll of his Plantagenet line and is aware of his origins.

Yes, it was interesting but I think he was initially was confused between Thomas Cromwell and Oliver Cromwell. If we had the resources to go back far enough, you may find a number of us descended from Royalty.

Did you ever see the one with Boris Johnson? He was so pleased to find out he had descended from royalty and even more excited when realising it had been on the 'wrong side' of the blanket!

Yes I watched it last night. Loved Danny Dyer's reactions to his finds. Great story. Wish I could find such fascinating stuff in my tree!

Hello, BrumEJ43, yes, I watched Danny Dyer on it last night, and although I never watch Eastenders, I thought it was brilliant when they uncovered that he's a direct descendant of Royalty. Just goes to show that we should never judge a book by its cover! I don't mean that in a bad way as some of my own predecessors on my English side were from the East End.
