New Documentary About Meghan Markle Makes Startling Revelation About One Of Her Relatives

Meghan Markle is arguably America's sweetheart, and is fast becoming England's sweetheart as well. The former 'Suits' actress is gearing up for her big walk down the aisle on Saturday in her wedding to Prince Harry.

The world can't seem to get enough of her these days, with articles, made-for-TV movies, and now, a documentary coming out to share some details about her life. One shocking detail reveals that she's related to a notorious serial killer.

The documentary, 'Meet the Markles', has examined the royal-to-be's family tree with a microscope, and has dug deep into the family history. One of Meghan's roots comes as a shocking surprise. She's apparently related to Herman Webster Mudgett, who is better known as H.H. Holmes.

Holmes is best known as being America's first serial killer, and one of the most brutal and vicious killers in American history. He confessed to 27 murders, and nine were confirmed, though it is believed that he may have killed more than 200 people in total.

Holmes, a doctor and a con man, began using cadavers while in medical school to cash in on life insurance policies. The then began taking out policies on people and murdering them so he could cash in. Eventually, in the 1880s, he moved to Chicago and built what came to be known as 'Murder Castle', a stately building he designed to toy with his victims.

The murderer would go seek out vagrants and people traveling alone, often looking for individuals at the World's Fair when it came to Chicago, and invite them home. The home had doors that locked from the outside, maze-like corridors, doors that would open to brick walls and vents to leak poison gas into rooms.

It also had shafts that allowed the killer to drop the bodies into the basement where he would do all kinds of sick things to them.

Apparently, Markle is distantly related to Holmes through marriage. Making things even more mind-blowing, though, the documentary reveals that Markle was also related to a descendent of Holmes, Jeff Mudgett, who is believed to have been the notorious serial killer of London, Jack the Ripper.

Jack the Ripper is one of the most well-known serial killers, though his identity has never been confirmed. He was active between 1888 and 1891 in the Whitechapel district of London, an area that was impoverished and run-down. He preyed upon prostitutes who worked in the slums.

The thing that shocked the world about Jack the Ripper is that he didn't just murder women, he mutilated them in abominable ways. The mutilations were not merely the act of a violent person who lost control, though-- they were meticulous, with the skills of a surgeon.

It’s hard to imagine that Meghan could be related to such evil people. After all, she’s such a kind-hearted humanitarian, who has campaigned for clean, safe drinking water in underdeveloped African nations and has worked with the United Nations to fight for gender equality.

Now she’s retired from her successful career in Hollywood to work full-time on humanitarian causes with her future husband, Prince Harry. Still, the mention is a fascinating tidbit for Markle fans, who just can’t get enough of her.
