Future king has 'a little bit of Indian blood'

Dr Jim Wilson, a genetics expert at the University of Edinburgh and chief scientist at BritainsDNA, who carried out the scientific research, said:

This is a great example of how genetics can be used to answer specific historical questions and uncover fascinating facts about our ancestry.

This was independent evidence that there was Indian ancestry.

For me, it corroborated the findings from the mtDNA. We've got two different kinds of genetic evidence that are independent from one another and they both corroborate the story.

So it really seems that our future king has a little bit of Indian blood.
