Australian mans Ancestry DNA test reveals his connection with Kate Middleton: report

An Australian man, named David Willis, has reportedly discovered he's a distant relative of Kate Middleton through an Ancestry DNA test.

Willis, 54, is over the moon to have connection with the Princess of Wales, dreaming to meet Prince William's wife in person.

The man has joked he might "extend (his) invitation to Kate", according to Independent.

David’s mum "still won’t believe him" despite the genetic evidence, as she "always understood (their) roots to be working class", but his cousins "are loving" the royal connection.

On his father’s side, he has discovered that "they were a boat full of convicts", so he now likes to jokingly refer to himself as "Kate’s convict cousin."

David said: "I researched my family on both sides, and that’s when it came up with an interesting connection. No one believed me – I had to double check the paperwork, and I thought what better way of doing it than testing my DNA through Ancestry. I was able to just submit my DNA to finally prove and say to everybody that I got my research right."

The 54-year-old claimed to be the fourth cousin of the royal. He is now lovingly called a "queen" by his friends.

David said: "I thought, what do Kate Middleton and I have in common? We both have smashing smiles, great dress sense and we’re distant cousins. I have blue blood – my friends call me a queen – I truly am!"
