Well my Mum is Brazilian but her family originated from Portugal and I think there’s some Italian in there as well. My dad is American but French on his grandmother’s side and there might be some Native American in there as well – so it’s really mixed up but the main part is European!

    Is it certain that Camilla doesn’t have any Jewish heritage?

    This twitter post has me wondering:

    • follers says:

      Well, she was evidently raised Catholic. Her father isn’t Jewish. I don’t know her mother’s genealogy, except for what Camilla said, “her family originated from Portugal and I think there’s some Italian in there as well”.

      • passingtime85 says:

        All I know about her mom, is her name, Deborah Cristina Gould. Gould sometimes can be a name Jews use to Anglicize names like Gold/stein/berg and the like, but that middle name makes me pretty dubious.

    She has those soft Portuguese features just like Nelly Furtado. Very pretty.
