Her Majesty the Queen is descended from Henry VII, through his daughter, Margaret of Scotland; not Henry VIII. Margaret's great-grandson became James VI of Scotland and James I of England. His daughter Elizabeth of Bohemia was the ancesstress of the Hanoverians.
If Henry VIII was indeed the father of Mary Boleyn's children, then Elizabeth II would be a descendant though the following line (and regardless of the Carey parentage, she's descendant from the Boleyns):Mary BoleynKatherine CareyLettice KnollysRobert DevereuxFrances DevereuxJane Seymour (d. 1679)Charles BoyleCharles BoyleRichard BoyleCharlotte Elizabeth BoyleDorothy CavendishWilliam Cavendish-BentinckCharles Cavendish-BentinckNina Cecile Cavendish-BentinckElizabeth Bowes LyonElizabeth II(I may have missed a Boyle or a Cavendish in there, but you get the general idea... you can double-check it at thepeerage.com )
