When it comes to inbreds, Buckingham palace families beat the Ozark mountain families hands down.
THE QUEEN'S RETARDED COUSINS
The queen’s first cousins Nerissa and Katherine Bowes-Lyon were incarcerated in a state run asylum in 1941.
Cousin Nerissa is now deceased but cousin Katherine, aged 85, is still alive, although severely mentally retarded. She is neglected and never visited.
The Queen's cousin Nerissa was 22 and the Queen's look-alike cousin Katherine was 15 when they were sent to the grim Royal Earlswood Mental Hospital. Both were severely handicapped and virtually unable to speak. They were said to have a mental age of six.
It turns out that the Queen's mother also had cousins who were locked away in the same mental institution on the same day in 1941 as Nerissa and Katherine.
Burke's Peerage which records the "who's who" lineage of the British aristocracy, recorded false information that the first cousins of Queen Elizabeth II died in 1940 and 1961.
Despite the Queen's fabulous wealth, she spent not one penny on cousin Nerissa's burial. Nerissa was buried like a pauper in an unceremounious grave marked by a 6-inch-high plastic tag bearing a serial number and the name ''Bowes-Lyon".
Cousin Katherine who spent decades in the Royal Earlswood Asylum, was moved to Ketwin House for the mentally disabled. Following allegations that male staff members were washing female patients, Ketwin House was forced to shut down. Witnesses found bruises on Katherine's hand and hip.
Despite the Queen's fabulous wealth, she spend not one penny to keep her cousin Katherine at Ketwin House. The cost? About 770 pounds per patient per year. According to a former staff member, Katherine is alert, understands what she's being told and communicates by pointing and smiling. Not one member of the Royal family has visited her in 60 years.
THE QUEEN'S EPILEPTIC UNCLE
An 'out of sight, out of mind' approach to family members with "embarrassing" problems like mental illness and epilepcy is nothing new in the royal household.
In 1905, George V and Queen Mary had a son, Prince John. Until the age of four, Prince John was just as much in the spotlight then as Prince William was in 1986 at the age of four.
When Prince John suffered his first epileptic fit, his royal parents excluded him from official family photographs.He wasn't even allowed to attend his own father's coronation as King of England in 1911.
Hollywood and the palace spin doctors have invested millions in propoganda movies to make the world forget about the heartless and twisted past of the British royal family. The Oscar winning propaganda movie "The Queen" was about resurrecting the Queen's "heartless" image after Diana's murder.
In 1917, the King hid his epileptic son by sending him to die in an isolated farmhouse. John never saw his parents again. He died two years later - reportedly in his sleep.
THE QUEEN'S TONGUE TIED FATHER
Another propaganda Oscar winner, The Kings' Speech, focused on the Queen's father and his speech impediment. There was no mention in the movie that the cause may have been from generations of royal inbreeding.
Monarchy blockbusters are designed to sell the image of the filthy rich royals as sensitive, caring, human and deserving of adoration and taxpayer support. No one would dare make a Hollywood movie about the King's nazi brother, Edward VIII who abdicated.
THE QUEEN'S HUSBAND'S SCHIZOPHRENIC MOTHER
Alice Battenberg was the mother of the Queen's husband - Prince Philip. Alice was near deaf and a religious zealot. As the years went by, she began to have visions that she was Christ's bride. She was declared a paranoid schizophrenic and committed to an asylum by force in 1930. Alice is Prince William's great grandmother.
This is but a small sample of royal inbreeding horror stories and cover-ups.
