Yesterday King Charles III buried his mother Queen Elizabeth II at St George’s Chapel, Windsor. Just like the late monarch, the former Prince of Wales met some incredibly famous stars over the years, many of whom are now dead, including Johnny Cash.

Johnny Cash’s eldest daughter Rosanne Cash, who he had with his first wife Vivian, has discovered an old photo of a young King Charles III meeting her father.

The 67-year-old tweeted: “I’ve been debating all day whether or not to post this photo, but it’s just too good to keep under wraps. I expect a lot of captions, but none I haven’t thought of already. But go right ahead.”

The Man In Black is pictured, dressed as his nickname would suggest, standing next to a bearded former Prince of Wales. Charles is captured in a suit and tie with his hand inside his jacket pocket.

Allegedly this photo of Cash, who died in 2003, and The King was taken in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada in 1976 backstage at one of the singer’s shows.

Interestingly, the two men are distantly related to each other according to Genealogy website Geni.

The line goes as follows: Johnny Cash, his father Raymond Cash, his father Rev William Henry Cash, his mother Pheletia White Cash (Taylor), her father John Taylor, his sister Mary Ann Micklebuary, her husband Henry Mickleborough, his father Henry Mickleborough, his sister Jane Daniel – and then the line descends to King Charles III as follows.

Jane Daniel’s daughter Jane Montague, her son John Montague, his son Henry Brown Montague, his son William Latane Montague, his daughter Alice Warfield, her daughter Bessie Wallis Warfield.

Now the latter married Earl Winfield Spencer Jr in 1916, before divorcing in 1927. She then married Ernest Aldrich Simpson in 1928 making her new name, one Wallis Simpson.

The American socialite was famously the lover of David aka Edward, Prince of Wales, who succeeded his father King George V as British monarch in 1936. However, King Edward VIII caused a constitutional crisis as he proposed to Mrs Simpson, a twice-divorced American.

In order to marry Mrs Simpson, King Edward VIII abdicated the throne and the couple became the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.

Continuing Cash’s distant relation to King Charles III, the line now crosses from the American Wallis Simpson by marriage to the British Edward VIII.

The monarch’s short reign was succeeded by his brother Bertie aka King George VI in the year of three kings and his daughter, Queen Elizabeth II, followed him upon his death in 1952. And, of course, she was the mother of King Charles III.
