At the end of the episode, Jill (Sophie Winkelman) makes note of the fact that the Earl of Cleveland is 47th in line to the throne. Winkelman's eldest daughter, Maud Windsor, through her marriage to Lord Frederick Windsor, is actually 47th in line to the British throne as a great-granddaughter of King George V through his fourth son, Prince George, Duke of Kent. Maud Windsor's grandparents are Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, with Prince Michael being the second son of Prince George. See more »
