    Watching Jeopardy tonight I learned that Prince Phillip and Queen Elizabeth are both Great Great Grandchildren of Queen Victoria. What relationship therefore, are they to each other?

    Their closest relationship is actually 2nd cousins once removed through the Danish royal family - her great-grandmother Queen Alexandra and his grandfather King George of Greece were brother and sister. In addition to being 3rd cousins through Queen Victoria, they are also 4th cousins, 5th cousins etc etc. Gotta love European royalty!

    My poor genealogy program would have a fit if I ever let it calculate ALL the ways they are related!
