" Twilight" vampire Robert Pattinson related to Dracula?

I have read this article in People's Tonight, a local newspaper here in the Philippines. I forgot the date but this is what the article says.

Forget about Bella Lugosi. " Twilight" biter Robert Pattinson might be an actual blood relative to Dracula. A new twist provided by the tween-scream flick's promotion machine says researchers at website Ancestry,con claim to have discovered that the 24 year old British actor is related to 15th-century ruler Vlad IV Tzepesh, a.k.a Vlad the Impaler, a.k.a that crazy killer freak who inspired Bram Stoker's classic novel Dracula.
If that's not quite enough to get your blood pumping, the good people of also say the Pattinson-Dracula connection extends to the British Royal family. Yep, Prince William and Prince Harry are Pattinson's distant cousins, and Vlad, they claim was their distant uncle.

Is this true or another form of publicity? or is it true? 

I have checked out the site It's a site where you can trace a person's roots, his bloodline. Registering in the site has a 14 day free trial but I did not bother to sign-up. Whether his a vampire offspring or not, doesn't matter. He is still my reason for existing. lol.
