Personal Quote:

Trivia:

His paternal eight times great-grandfather was King Charles II of England. Charles II was King of England, Scotland, and Ireland from 1660 to 1685, as well as King of Scotland from 1649 to 1651. Actors Dacre Montgomery and Rose Leslie are also descended from Charles II, and are therefore KIt's distant cousins. See more »
