London: Hunt has been on in India for possible cousins and relatives of Prince William after it emerged that he has a sliver of Indian ancestry.

Attention was focused on the city of Surat in the state of Gujarat after it was revealed that Eliza Kewark , the prince`s great, great, great, great, great grandmother, was of Indian origin.

In 1812, Kewark gave birth to Prince Williams`s great, great, great, great grandmother, Katharine Scott Forbes, the Independent reported.

Scottish-based company Britains DNA carried out tests on DNA supplied by two of Eliza`s living direct descendants, who are both third cousins of Princess Diana`s mother, Frances Shand Kydd.

The tests revealed that William carries Kewark`s mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA).
