The Queen a Genealogist?

According to Prince Andrew, his mother "has a genealogical brain."

Sarah [Ferguson, Andrew's former wife] will talk to me about someone and I don't know who she's talking about, but if she talks to my mother, the two of them will know exactly--and across several generations too. [Link]
We can be sure that Queen Elizabeth is the type of woman who values family history for its own sake, and not for any special privileges that might spring from one's ancestry. At the family reunion, she's the one who hands out the name tags and keeps Cousin Reginald from spiking the punch.
