Kate and William #RoyalVisitIndia

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have reached Mumbai, the first stop of their week long 2016 Royal Tour of Asia. They've been busy since landing and tonight they'll be greeted by the biggest names of Bollywood, Celebrity and Fashion at a glittering Grand Ball Fundraiser at the Taj Hotel Mumbai. The guest list includes A-list celebrities like actors Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Director Karan Johar and cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar.

The location is a symbolic show of solidarity following the 2008 terrorist attacks where 164 were massacred. The couple laid a wreath here on their arrival and whilst everyone's super excited to see the Royals, security is understandably heightened.

The Royal Couple's personal message

 

Kate Middleton in Anita Dongre

 Fantastic choice! Kate changes for the day into VIVA-LUXE Designer Anita Dongre 

 

Anita Dongre is known for her use and support of local craftsmanship, textile and trade, so was a really smart choice from the Royal household to wear on Day 1 of their trip. Anita is a through and through Mumbaiker, born and raised in Bandra, West Mumbai. You can shop this very same outfit as worn by the Duchess of Cornwall.

 The tunic is so comfy Kate can even jump for joy! Go #madeinindia



The couple will also stop in Indian capital New Delhi where they'll lunch with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modhi, Kaziranga National Park and Gandhi Smriti where Mahatma Gandhi spent the last few years of his life.

Enjoy the rest of this beautiful country William and Kate and thanks for dropping by! The Royal couple return to England at the end of next week, after visiting the actual Taj Mahal in Agra, back home in time for the Queen’s 90th birthday on April 21.
