It’s a hit UK reality series promoting which promotes a group of isolated young adults who couple up in different ways in an effort to win money, but the person who many would think is most distanced from the show “Love Island,” actually has a surprising connection to it—and that person is none other than Queen Elizabeth herself.

According to Express UK, the Mallorca villa where the ITV2 series films is owned by Nikolaus Broschek, who is married to Princess Ingeborg Schleswig-Holstein, a fourth great-granddaughter of Queen Victoria, who is also the great-great-grandmother of both Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh and Queen Elizabeth II. Though they are distant relatives, that means that the reality series, which is filmed in a villa near the small town of Saint Llorenc des Cardassar in eastern Majorca, has a connection to the current reigning royal family.

Broschek is listed as the sole director of Casas Rusticas e Historicas de Mallorca, which is the company that owns the villa and began operating it almost two decades ago, the website reports. He married his wife, securing his place in the nobility of the royal family as a result, back in 1991. However, despite the connection, it’s believed the show’s participants do not know about their degree of separation from Her Majesty, while it is also reported she does not watch the program.

However, whether they are aware of the connection to the royal family or not, the show’s participants are certainly making names for themselves in other ways as the series continues to be a hit in the UK. Participants continue to make a splash in the headlines for their antics on the show, and the series even prompted a US version that has been airing simultaneously.

While the prize money that UK participants can earn at the end is £50,000, the US participants stand to potentially win $100,000 if they are picked. Of the original Day 1 contestants who are still participating in the US show, eight still remain in the running: Cashel Barnett, Kyra Green, Zac Mirabelli, Weston Richey, Yamen Sanders, Alexandra Stewart, Caroline Viehwig and Elizabeth Weber.

The UK Version, which has been airing for a longer period of time, still has five contestants remaining from the original group: Anton Danyluk, Tommy Fury, Amber Gill, Curtis Pritchard and Anna Vakili.
