William and Kate’s Generation Game: One’s middle-class, the other’s blue-blooded. How do the Middleton and Windsor family trees compare?

It is traditionally the first question you are asked by the ushers when you arrive at a wedding ceremony: ‘Bride or Groom?’

But when William and Kate marry at Westminster Abbey in less than two weeks, the question will be mere formality as the contrast between the couple’s guests could not be starker. For Kate is the first ‘commoner’ to marry a future King for 350 years – since James II scandalised the court by marrying his mistress Anne Hyde – and her family and friends will stand out among the landed gentry and coronets.
While her family is descended from miners and mill owners, William can trace his family history back to Queen Victoria and centuries beyond. Now, in conjunction with a new television documentary, Meet The Middletons, The Mail on Sunday has charted the tale of two extraordinary families, whose union will produce our future Monarch
