All eyes are on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as they embark on their maiden tour of India and Bhutan. But India was always on Kate Middleton’s radar. “When Catherine and I were married, India was the first place on Catherine’s list that she told me that she wanted to visit,” said Prince William. “Two children and five years later, we have finally made it – and we are both honoured to be here.”

Their itinerary seemed hectic. (Guess you don’t get weekends off if you’re royalty?) They arrived at Mumbai’s Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, where they laid a wreath to remember the victims of the November 2008 attacks. They met Sachin Tendulkar and Dilip Vengsarkar at the Oval Maidan later that afternoon, where the couple knocked some rounds with budding cricketers.

TRH also met kids from local charities such as Door Step, Childline India Foundation and Magic Bus; took an open-top bus with kids from Apnalaya. Later that evening, they helped raise funds for these charities by attending a Bollywood gala, where they hobnobbed with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez, Manish Malhotra and more!
