The Duke of Cambridge has proven Indian ancestry, according to new DNA analysis.
Scientists testing saliva samples from Prince William's relatives discovered a direct link between the future king and a woman who was part-Indian.
The research shows that the second in line to the throne carries a rare form of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) from his great-great-great-great-great grandmother. Mitochondrial DNA is a small piece of DNA inherited mostly unchanged from a mother to her children.
The mtDNA was passed on through daughters and granddaughters directly in an unbroken line to Princess Diana, then on to Prince William and Prince Harry.
Scientists said it is "very likely" that Prince William's heirs will also carry a small proportion of Indian DNA from Eliza, whose father may have been of Armenian descent.
