Reign's Adelaide Kane Isn't Actually Related To Mary, Queen of Scots (Exclusive)

One of the big things we knew about Adelaide Kane when Reign first started is that she was somehow related to the actual Mary, Queen of Scots.

However, she actually isn’t.

Adelaide cleared up all of that when JJJ spoke to her yesterday.

While she had thought the tartan on her mother’s side was Royal Stuart, it’s actually Stuart of Bute, instead. The tartans are actually quite similar, so we can definitely see if one got confused (see below).

“I was misinformed years ago when I said the tartan was Royal Stuart, but it’s actually the Stewart of Bute tartan,” Adelaide shared with us. “They’re related, but they’re not the same line. It was an error on my part.”

She adds, laughing about it, “The way I see it is that since they are related, I wasn’t entire full of it, but I was…because I didn’t do the proper research behind it.”

Adelaide also told us about researching her family tree with her uncle and finding out all sorts of things.

“It’s interesting because I have a friend who’s descended from an old King of Scots, Robert the Bruce; it’s crazy. All these royal blood lines just pop up in the most interesting places. That’s just what happens as the world expands and people colonize. It’s remarkable that we can track that genealogy and trace it back to hundreds of years.”

Stay tuned for more from our interview with Adelaide!
