Prince William and Kate Middleton are leaving the comforts of Kensington Palace for an exciting trip to India in April! The official tour, which will kick off the second week of the month, is the proud parents’ first since visiting New York in 2014, and it already sounds like they have quite the itinerary lined up.
Will and Kate’s first day in Mumbai on April 10 will be a study in extremes when they enjoy a game of cricket, go to the poorest parts of the city, and later check out the glamorous Bollywood nightlife. The next day, they’ll venture to New Delhi for an emotional journey to the spot where Indian independence leader Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated in 1948, as well as participate in a garden party celebration to commemorate Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday. After leaving New Delhi, the royal pair will go to Kaziranga National Park to observe conservation efforts and check in on the Elephant Family charity, an organization that Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, supports. The couple’s following two days will be spent in Bhutan, where they’ll visit with the country’s king, queen, and newborn son. On April 16, the week-long trip will round out with a tour of the Taj Mahal, the spot where Princess Diana made an iconic visit to in 1992.
In addition to Will and Kate’s tour of India, the royal family has a whole lot planned for 2016, so keep an eye out for more updates!
