Actually he is pretty much reciting from the book Holy Blood, Holy Grail.
Channel Four's The Real Da Vinci Code presenter Tony Robinson asked Michael Baigent the following question in relation to the claim that Jesus Christ married Mary Magdalene and produced offspring:
Do we have any evidence that there was a child?
There's none whatsoever – that’s purely hypothesis on our part – but I think it's a plausible hypothesis - that the Holy Grail is the bloodline of David – and if Jesus and Mary Magdalene had been married and she was pregnant with this child – "yes, she would have carried the Grail to France" – and I think this is the way that we need to look at this material – Is it true? I don't know – Is it plausible? Yes.
So the inspiration for 'The Da Vinci Code' and a whole Canon of secret Grail Hunts is no more than a Big Guess...
A New York Times article stated: ‘Much of The Da Vinci Code scaffolding of conspiracies was constructed in an earlier best seller, Holy Blood, Holy Grail, published in the 1980s. [In fact, the book’s authors sued unsuccessfully for plagiarism – Ed.] It relies on a file of documents found in the Bibliothèque Nationale de France that has since been exposed as one man’s hoax.’
The Da Vinci Code: Fiction masquerading as fact
Why the Baigent book was published under the category of nonfiction rather than fiction is a mystery to me. ...this has been the standard formula for pulp fiction about Jesus ever since the Gnostics invented the genre in the second century A.D.
In fact, all of the books with caricatures of Christ that are spawned today on a conspiracy-happy public merely demonstrate that Gnosticism, the earliest Christian heresy, is alive and well in the twenty-first century. These wild claims have not a spark of supporting evidence. Christianity rests on fact, not on fantasy, but Gnostic writers, now just as then, remain eager to superimpose their own image and fantasies onto the facts of history.
MICHAEL BAIGENT AND THE GNOSTIC TACTIC: FANTASY POSING AS FACT?
It seems dubious author Michael Baigent has thrust his pen into the side of Yeshua again in his new book The Jesus Papers. A followup to his 1982 hit and miss Holy Blood, Holy Grail in which he has Jesus escape the cross through drug use and elope to France with Mary Magdalene. This was the inspiration behind Dan Brown’s overwhelmingly popular, over-hyped, fraudulent and highly imaginative DaVinci Code.
Baigent’s premise in The Jesus Papers is the same as Holy Blood, Holy Grail, only this time he takes it a step further. He claims to have found what he calls the “Jesus Papers,” written letters from Yeshua to the Sanhedrin uncovering the “truth” about Yeshua’s feigned death and the ensuing details of his “life after death.” Hershel Shanks has a good time poking fun at this wasted ink called a novel in his recent review of it. Take a peak and have a few laughs, and don’t worry about it shaking anyone’s faith but those who have none.
Holy Blood, Holy Lies
thats interesting. So who is "she"?

You are so wrong sorry. As I have pointed out before, the saviour has been crucified, (killed), before he left the womb. The child due to be born on the anniversary of Jesus' true birth was to unite both Muslims and Christians to shepherd in a new religious tolerance. She would have changed the world. YES it was a she.
This is just my opinion though and means nothing.
You are right about harry though, he has broken the bloodline of his brother causing a new line!
