The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have embarked on their first visit to India and Bhutan this week, in the lead-up to the Queen’s milestone 90th birthday.
The tour is the couple’s first in two years and the pair look to be having plenty of fun in the photos released from the trip! Prince William and Duchess Catherine began their tour in Mumbai, touching down in the morning of April 10.
In Mumbai, Kate and William visited the Taj Palace Hotel to lay a wreath at a memorial honouring those who lost their lives in the 2008 terrorist attacks. Afterwards, the pair played a spirited game of cricket with children at the Oval Maidan, a public park in the area, and spoke with residents of the Banganga slums.
In the evening, the royals attended a glitzy gathering of Mumbai’s leading public figures (including several Bollywood stars) hosted by The British High Commission and The British Asian Trust. The event was a celebration of the city’s thriving film and creative industries, as well as an opportunity to raise funds for three charities that Kate and Will met during their first day in India (Magic Bus, Doorstep and Childline).
From there, the couple travelled to New Delhi where they will continue their tour of the country. This is both Kate and William’s first trip to India, and the royals are keen to embrace the local culture and customs during their visit.
“People are so friendly, met lovely children yesterday, we are loving it all and I am looking forward to go back with some wonderful memories,” she told The Indian Express after arriving in New Delhi.
