Sir: Everyone's ancestry is half maternal. How can the Queen's lineage be "largely German" (Letters, 14 March) when the Queen Mother is of British descent. George II, who died in 1760, was the last of our sovereigns not to be born in this country. No other family domiciled here so long would still be thought of as German.
