Which of Kate Middleton's Ancestors is also a Common Ancestor to Millions of Americans?

Sir William Gascoigne

Answer: Sir William Gascoigne

Many of Kate’s relationships to Americans derive from the marriage of Sir William Gascoigne (d. 1487) and Lady Margaret Percy, who are ancestors of George Washington, Meriwether Lewis, Rear Admiral Richard Evelyn Byrd of the South Pole, General George Smith Patton, Jr., and Ellen DeGeneres—and of several million Americans today.

If you said King Edward III, you're also right. If you can trace your ancestry back to King Edward III—as up to 50 million Americans can—then you most undoubtedly are related to Kate (and to William)!
