That lawyer in Utah …

As you can see from the article, the author (Tom Leonard) knows the answer to be in the negative because the Royal Marriages Act 1772 precludes the descendants of George II from marrying without the sovereign’s consent – that sovereign being George III at the time.

For comparison, the only known male line descendants of George III are from Germany, as his son Ernst returned to become King of Hanover:
