Her father has English and Scottish ancestry.

“With a mum whose parents were from Sierra Leone and Sweden respectively, and a dad with English and Scottish roots, Mabel has a rich cultural heritage”.

Many sources says that she was born in Málaga, Spain. I can’t find her birth certificate with the given information, so it is likely true.

Mabel’s paternal grandparents were/are Duncan Blair W. McVey and Jean A. Millward.

I suspect that none of her paternal grandparents were English.
