Yes, she is a direct descendent, making Edward her 22 x Great Grandfather.

Yes. 'II' is in fact her surname. Kings and Queens do not actually have surnames, so the different families of Kings and Queens are given numbers by the historians. The 'II' family and the 'I' family have been rivals for the throne for centuries.
