After the hug, Harry jokingly asked the rest of the team if anyone else wanted to lay a claim to being related to Meghan.
The Boston Globe reports that Betts discovered he was a distant relative of Meghan, as their ancestors are from the same part of Alabama.
According to census records the 38-year-old royal and Betts’ great-great-grandfathers Jacob and Joseph Betts opposite each other.
After the game, Betts said: “Yes I read about it, I was informed, I was informed last year when I found out we were coming.
“So I figured, I hope I get to meet her, and I did, and I gave her a hug, and I think she invited me over for dinner.”
