He'll Never Succeed at Succeeding

Robin Bryan is a third cousin of the Queen, and 496th in the line of succession to the British throne.

When last tracked down he was living in a ‘seedy’ part of Toronto, Canada, where he was working as a municipal gardener.

Bryan’s mother sold nylons in a New York department store and advertised bubble gum, and the only legacy of his royal bloodline was a few pieces of crested china, which had once belonged to his great-grandmother — Queen Victoria’s daughter, Princess Beatrice.

Every time he looks in the mirror, though, he says he sees a Hanoverian. As for potential heirs, he is the father of three illegitimate children by three different women. [Link]
