After a fabulously fun start to the Royal Tour, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge continued their visit to India. The day began in Mumbai.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended an event at The Social – a bar, restaurant, and collaborative workspace for Mumbai’s youth. At an event hosted by the GREAT campaign, the Duke and Duchess met with young and aspiring entrepreneurs, volunteers, and local members of the community.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge then boarded a plane for the short flight to Delhi. New Delhi is the capitol of India, and the Duke and Duchess are spending two days visiting the beautiful city. The next event was more somber in tone – William and Catherine laid a wreath in commemoration for the 70,000 Indian soldiers who lost their lives in World War I. Many do not know that so many Indian men fought for the British army during this time, which has left a tremendous impact with not enough remembrance or respect. It was a very nice tribute for India and all they have given for Great Britain.
William and Catherine were whisked straight to Gandhi Smriti, a historical museum commemorating the life and teachings of Mahatma Gandhi. The museum is actually the Old Birla House, the house where Gandhi spent the last few years of his life, and has since been converted into a memorial museum.
For the early events in the day, Catherine wore an ivory crepe dress by Emilia Wickstead. She accessorized with new Rupert Sanderson pumps, Cassandra Goad earrings, and a Mulberry clutch.
The final event of the day was a very fun end to the day – a garden party to commemorate the Queen’s 90th birthday party! The British High Commissioner hosted the event at his residence in Delhi. It was a proper garden tea party with cakes and sandwiches!
The Duchess of Cambridge wore a cropped top and skirt by Alice Temperley to the Garden Party.
Tomorrow is another wonderful day of the tour with exciting events planned. They will continue their tour of New Delhi, and end the day around a campfire in Kaziragna!
