Está emparentado con la familia royal.

English Translation

He is related to the royal family.

“Royal” isn’t a Spanish cognate with the English “royal”, and I just want to point that out in case anyone gets confused about that.

Good catch! Since I can’t find the sentence in the search, I assume it’s in the “new” FFT, right?

I think it is. Either way, it’s worth noting that there is a “royal” in Spanish, but it’s a brand name for a powdered leaven used only in Cuba and Mexico (according to the RAE)!

Just for those who don’t know the word is real instead of royal. Está emparentado con la familia real.
