Are Sophie Rhys-Jones (Countess of Essex) and Trevor Rhys-Jones (in Paris car with princess Diana) related?

I was reading a recent article about Prince Edward and his wife Sophie and noticed that her maiden name is the same as the "bodyguard" who was is Paris with Princess DIana (it seems like an unusual last name to me)?

    Dodi Al- Fayed's former body guard, Trevor Rees Jones (b. 1968) spells his surname differently than the Countess of Wessex, spells her maiden name, Rhys-Jones. The Countess was born 20 January 1965 to Christopher Bournes Rhys-Jones, a retired tire salesman, and the late Mary O'Sullivan, a secretary who was a native of Ireland. Since both Jones and Reese (in its various forms) are both very common Welsh names, the two are probably not related.

    Jeez guys, she is only trying to do some good, why are people so cynical? This poor boy was innocent to the muppet that said he probably pissed of a gang, he was on his way back from football practise!!! Changes have to be made, and if signing petitions makes even a small number of people realise that changes need to be made and that the laws and policing have to improve, then so be it.
