R30b is a branch of R30. It is defined by 24 coding and control region mutations according to Chaubey et. al. 2008. The same paper reports samples with this haplogroup in Punjab.
My 23andme analysis shows this as mtDNA ancestory. Would love to know other members with similar results. Please post any insight into the prevalence of this haplogroup and defining mutations info.

"Using birth, marriage and death records, he said researchers traced two of Eliza's living direct descendants, who are both third cousins of Princess Diana's mother, Frances Shand Kydd, and tested samples of their saliva.
Using other genetic tests to corroborate the findings, they also discovered that the two direct descendants were around 0.3% and 0.8% South Asian. The rest of their DNA was of European origin."

"Getting back to Prince William, it seems that he has not personally provided a DNA sample, but instead we are able to infer his mitochondrial DNA result with reasonable certainty from the results of two of his maternal relatives. Through a process of triangulation, these samples can be used to determine the type of mitochondrial DNA carried by Eliza Kewark. The results of these tests appear unequivocal: the two people tested both carry a rare type of mitochondrial DNA called R30b, which has previously only been found in India and Nepal. The Times story states that other genetic markers found in the genomes of the DNA donors also provide evidence for south Asian ancestry. Thus it seems that Eliza Kewark was likely to have Indian maternal ancestry, even if her paternal lineage was Armenian."

I read she lived in Surat, Gujrat. So far I have read R30b reported in Punjab, Nepal, Afghanistan and Gujrat. Vedda people of SriLanka also have this haplogroup.
