For their royal tour in 2016, the Duke and the Duchess visited India for a week in the month of April, after which they went back to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday back home in London.
Here are some of the best moments from their trip to India:
The Duchess is also known for her exclusive fashion sense, and we see her taste in all the pictures that pasted over the internet during this royal couple’s visit to India.
On her visit to Mumbai, the royal couple also met with children from various NGOs like Magic Bus, Childline and Doorstep. They also indulged in a quick cricket match organised for them!
They even visited the wilderness of Assam and the Duchess volunteered to feed this baby rhino at the Centre for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi met both Prince William and Duchess of Cambridge on their short visit to New Delhi.
Shobhaa De also came into news with her churlish comments made on Kate’s choice of outfits for her India tour. She reportedly commented that her dressing style was ‘boring’ and ‘wishy washy’, whatever that means. But of course, an opinion is not required everywhere and many Indians who wrote an open letter to Shobhaa De, made sure they conveyed the message.
