Brits with Dutch Heritage

As mentioned earlier, Dutch people have been present in the UK for centuries. Many of them stayed and a suprising number of well-known British people have Dutch ancestry. Big names such as Denise van Outen, Nigella Lawson, Carol Vorderman, the late, charismatic poet laureate John Betjeman and iconic actress Audrey Hepburn all have traceable Dutch heritage, and they form part of a sizeable population of part-Dutch British people.
