Kate overheard the EastEnders star's hilarious attempt to impress the future King as she stood beside him on the red carpet at the National Prince's Trust at the London Palladium last night.
Danny is in fact 167th in line to the throne, and found out last year on Who Do You Think You Are?
Kate told viewers on GMB today: "The Prince was absolutely charming. Although somewhat surprised to find out that he is related to Danny Dyer. Which we all know because he's talked about it on this show."
Then, as footage flashed up of the Prince greeting stars on the red carpet, the host added: "Danny Dyer tries to tell him there that he's related. He sort of moved on swiftly. Uhm yes, he couldn't quite take it in."
The soap star supported GMB's mentoring award at the annual ceremony, after being mentored by legendary thespian Harold Pinter.
He appeared on stage to deliver an award with Kate when Prince Charles sat nearby.
Kate couldn't resist drawing more attention to Danny's family connection and told Danny the event was like a "family reunion" for him.
Danny replied: "Well you know when your cousin Charlie makes the call you've got to help yuor family out, do yuo know what I mean? Straight up his nut."
Later, Prince Charles finally admitted it was "interesting" to discover he had a soap star in the family.
He said: "I've discovered a long lost relationship in Daniel Dyer, he told me he was descended from Edward the III which was interesting. So I must do some research when I leave here."
Earlier this year, 41-year-old Danny travelled to Sweden and France as part of his documentary Danny Dyer's Right Royal Family that explored the lives of his aristocratic ancestors.
But Danny's not alone in his claims, with other Who Do You Think You Are? participants including Alexander Armstrong, Boris Johnson and Matthew Pinsent all turning out to be of royal descent.
