Despite Willis’ enthusiasm, he says that his mom “still won’t believe him” despite the genetic evidence. Apparently his mother has “always understood (their) roots to be working class.” But his mom’s cynicism hasn’t stopped the man’s other cousins from loving his royal connection.
Willis is basking in his newfound status although he also found out that his father’s side of the family are “a boat full of convicts.” With this duel status he now calls himself “Kate’s convict cousin.”

How does Willis explain his claims? According to him, “I researched my family on both sides, and that’s when it came up with an interesting connection. No one believed me – I had to double check the paperwork, and I thought what better way of doing it than testing my DNA through Ancestry. I was able to just submit my DNA to finally prove and say to everybody that I got my research right.”
